'Inception' and 'Made in Dagenham' follow close behind

London– Tom Hooper’s “The King’s Speech” and Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan” lead the longlists for this year’s British Academy Film Awards, with 15 nominations apiece.

Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” Martin Scorsese’s “Shutter Island,” David O. Russell’s “The Fighter” and the Coen brothers’ “True Grit” have 12 mentions, while Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours,” Niels Arden Oplev’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” and Ben Affleck’s “The Town” have 11.

Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” and Nigel Cole’s “Made in Dagenham” are close behind with 14, followed by David Fincher’s “The Social Network” with 13.

The longlists are made up of the 15 contenders in each category, chosen by BAFTA members in the first round of voting, which closed Jan. 5. In the second round, voters will select the five nominees, to be unveiled Jan. 18. The winners will be announced Feb. 13 at London’s Royal Opera House.

But the longlists also provide a strong clue to the likely nominees, because they include an indication of which five contenders in each category got the most votes from the relevant chapter.

The nominations tend to follow the chapter choices closely, though not exactly.

By that yardstick, “The King’s Speech” emerges as the clear leader in the BAFTA race, with 12 chapter picks. “Black Swan” has 10 chapter picks, followed by “Inception” with eight, “The Social Network” and “True Grit” with six, and “127 Hours” and “Alice” with five.

Of the 15 titles on the best film list, 14 also appear in the best director list. The exception is Debra Granik’s “Winter’s Bone,” which is named for best film but replaced by “Alice” for director.

There are no chapter picks in the best film list, but in a strong indication of the leading contenders, the directing chapter voted for Boyle, Aronofsky, Nolan, Hooper and Fincher.

The acting chapter chose Colin Firth (“The King’s Speech”), James Franco (“127 Hours”), Javier Bardem (“Biutiful”), Jeff Bridges (“True Grit”) and Jesse Eisenberg (“The Social Network”) for best actor; and Annette Bening and Julianne Moore (both for “The Kids are All Right”), Carey Mulligan (“True Grit”), Michelle Williams (“Blue Valentine”) and Natalie Portman (“Black Swan”) for best actress.

The thesps also picked Andrew Garfield (“The Social Network”), Bob Hoskins (“Made in Dagenham”), Christian Bale (“The Fighter”), Geoffrey Rush (“The King’s Speech”) and Mark Ruffalo (“The Kids Are All Right”) for supporting actor.

Amy Adams (“The Fighter”), Barbara Hershey (“Black Swan”), Helena Bonham Carter (“The King’s Speech”), Lesley Manville (“Another Year”) and Miranda Richardson (“Made in Dagenham”) are the chapter choices for supporting actress.

This year’s longlists include a handful of entries for British films not generally tipped as being in Oscar contention. “Brighton Rock” picked up seven mentions, and Gemma Arterton proved her popularity with BAFTA voters with two best actress entries for “The Disappearance of Alice Creed” and “Tamara Drewe.”

“The Disappearance of Alice Creed” also appears on the original screenplay list, along with “Four Lions.” “Monsters” and “Kick Ass” get nods for special visual effects, with “Kick Ass” also getting credit for costume design.

The longlists are also significant for omissions. There were no entries for Peter Weir’s “The Way Back,” despite Weir’s history as a double BAFTA winner, almost certainly reflecting the fact that distrib E1 did not send out screeners to BAFTA members.

BAFTA also separately announced the five nominees for best film not in the English language: Mexico’s “Biutiful,” Gaul’s “Of Gods and Men,” Sweden’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” Italy’s “I Am Love” and Argentina’s “The Secret in their Eyes.”
