‘The Favourite’ Leads BAFTA Awards Nominations

The Favourite” has scored 12 nominations at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ movie awards, far outpacing the rest of the pack.

Behind it came “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “First Man,” “Roma” and “A Star Is Born” with seven BAFTA nominations apiece. “Vice” garnered six noms, “BlacKkKlansman” five, and “Cold War” and “Green Book” four each. Earning three nominations each were “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”, “Mary Poppins Returns,” “Mary Queen of Scots” and “Stan & Ollie.”

All three main actresses in “The Favourite” – Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, and Emma Stone – were recognized with noms, which were unveiled Wednesday. Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga landed best actor and actress nods for “A Star Is Born,” and Cooper was one of the five nominees – all men – for best director.

“Roma” continued its awards-season run, landing nominations for both best film and best film in a foreign language, as well as a director nomination for Alfonso Cuaron.

The BAFTAs are the most prestigious film awards outside the U.S. and are often seen as a harbinger of the Oscars. The nominations were announced by actors Will Poulter and Hayley Squires at BAFTA’s headquarters in London.

    'My Zoe': Film Review

    There are two films in Julie Delpy’s ambitious, sharply-made but unbalanced “My Zoe.” There’s the scabrous relationship melodrama, about bitter exes sharing custody of a beloved child, which contains the story’s most potent emotions. And there’s the sci-fi-inflected ethical-dilemma grief movie, which houses its most provocative ideas. Both have much to recommend them, not least [...]

    The Big Lie of 'Richard Jewell' (Column)

    For a man who was so enraged at the administration of Barack Obama that he spent his 2012 Republican Convention speech lecturing an empty chair, Clint Eastwood has made a number of conventional, level-headed — one might even say liberal — political dramas. Films like “Invictus” and “J. Edgar” and “Midnight in the Garden of [...]
