‘Artist,’ ‘Tinker’ lead BAFTA race

'Hugo,' 'Marilyn,' 'Help,' 'Horse' multi-nommed

Hot off its Golden Globes win for comedy or musical, “The Artist” leads the pack with 12 BAFTA nominations, announced in London Tuesday morning.

Its haul includes best film, director for Michel Hazanavicius and actor for Jean Dujardin, who also won a Golden Globe for his perf in the B&W homage to silent movies.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” nabbed 11 noms, including film, outstanding British film, director for Tomas Alfredson and actor for Gary Oldman.

Martin Scorsese’s 3D pic “Hugo” received nine noms, including director, cinematography, editing and sfx. The helmer’s “George Harrison: Living in the Material World” is nominated in the documentary category, an award that the British Academy of Film and Television Arts debuts this year.

My Week With Marilyn” earned six nods, including outstanding British film and actress for Michelle Williams, while “The Help” and “War Horse” each got five, including film and cinematography respectively.

“Drive,” “The Iron Lady” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2” each received four.

“The Artist,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “The Descendants,” “The Help” and “Drive” will all view for best film.

Noms for outstanding British film went to “My Week With Marilyn,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “Senna,” “Shame” and “We Need to Talk About Kevin.”

Joe Cornish’s “Attack the Block,” Ralph Fiennes’ “Coriolanus,” Paddy Considine’s “Tyrannosaur,” Richard Ayoade’s “Submarine” and Will Sharpe and Tom Kingsley’s “Black Pond” are all up for outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer.

“Black Pond,” perhaps not as well known as its competitors in the category, stars Chris Langham and Simon Amstell, and sees a British family and their Japanese friend accused of murder when a stranger dies at the dinner table.

Brad Pitt (“Moneyball”), Oldman (“Tinker Tailor”), George Clooney (“The Descendants”), Dujardin (“The Artist”) and Michael Fassbender (“Shame”) all compete in the best actor category, while Berenice Bejo (“The Artist”), Meryl Streep (“The Iron Lady”), Michelle Williams (“My Week With Marilyn”), Tilda Swinton (“We Need to Talk About Kevin”) and Viola Davis (“The Help”) compete for best actress.
