‘Confidential’ leads BAFTA noms

'Full Monty' 2nd with 11

CORRECTED
VERSION

LONDON — “L.A. Confidential” continued its strong showing in the awards derby, leading the pack in this year’s BAFTA film awards nominations with 12, including best film, director, adapted screenplay and actress. Kim Basinger scored a best actress nom, after being chosen in the supporting actress category in the U.S. Academy’s nominations.

Britain’s top pic of all time, “The Full Monty,” was second, with 11 noms, including best film, British film, actor, actress and director, for Peter Cattaneo.

In addition to Basinger, the best actress category mirrors Hollywood’s selections in two choices: Judi Dench for “Mrs. Brown” — which in total has eight nods, including best film — and Helena Bonham Carter for “The Wings of the Dove,” which took four overall.

“L.A. Confidential” also fared well in the best actor category, with Kevin Spacey the only non-Brit nominee. Spacey is up against Billy Connolly’s performance in “Mrs. Brown,” Robert Carlyle’s star-making turn in “The Full Monty” and Ray Winstone in “Nil by Mouth,” Gary Oldman’s personal and gritty directorial debut, for which he got an original screenplay nod.

“Titanic” is nominated for 10 BAFTAs — including best film and director — but received no acting noms, leading or supporting, as is also true of the seven-times nominated “William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet,” for which director Baz Luhrmann is nominated. Both pics fared well in the tech categories.

And two more Yanks garnered supporting acting nominations: Burt Reynolds for “Boogie Nights” and Sigourney Weaver for “The Ice Storm.”

The awards ceremony will be held April 19. This year marks a significant departure for the BAFTAs, since it has separated film from television with the creation of the first British Academy Film Awards.

Previously, the film and television awards were held at the same time, but it was determined that TV in combination with film diminished the prestige of the film awards. Below is the complete list of nominees.
