LONDON — “Sideways,” “Finding Neverland” and “The Aviator,” three titles that made the Producers Guild of America and Directors Guild of America final five, also have shown up on BAFTA’s short list.

The second round of voting, which started Thursday and will close Wednesday, will narrow the list down to five noms. The third and final round closes Feb. 3, with winners announced at the BAFTA ceremony Feb. 12.

Rounding out the 15 selections are “Bad Education,” “Closer,” “Collateral,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” “House of Flying Daggers,” “The Incredibles,” “The Motorcycle Diaries,” “Ray” and “Vera Drake.”

“Fahrenheit 9/11” and “Shrek 2” also made it onto the list for film. “Shrek 2” was the only film mentioned not to figure in the selection for director, where it was replaced by “Kill Bill Vol. 2’s” Quentin Tarantino.

Notable exclusions include “Million Dollar Baby,” “Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera,” “The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou,” “The Passion of the Christ” and “Kinsey.”

(“Million Dollar Baby” is distributed in the U.K. by Entertainment, which has a long-standing policy of not sending out screeners, and managed to arrange only a handful of screenings over the Christmas period.)

There’s also a washout of smaller British pics, with no sign of such critically acclaimed titles as Ken Loach’s “Ae Fond Kiss,” Pawel Pawlikowski’s “My Summer of Love,” Amma Asante’s “A Way of Life” or Shane Meadows’ “Dead Man’s Shoes.”

Some or all of these films are likely to be in the running for the Alexander Korda award for best British film, which is decided secretly by BAFTA’s film committee and for which the list of contenders is not published.
