‘Gravity’ Leads 2014 BAFTA Nominations

gravity

Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity led the nominations for the 2014 British Academy Film Awards, taking 11 nominations total including best film, original screenplay, best actress, best director, and best British film. Steve McQueen’s masterful 12 Years A Slave and David O. Russell’s con-artist ensemble American Hustle followed closely behind with 10 nominations each.

The three films were joined by Captain Phillips and Philomena in the best film category, where The Wolf of Wall Street, Her, Inside Llewyn Davis, Nebraska, and Dallas Buyers Club were noticeably left out. Gravity earning a nomination in both the best film and the best British film categories should give the film a boost.

Captain Phillips, the hijacking thriller directed by Paul Greengrass, earned a total of nine nominations, while Saving Mr. Banks and Behind The Candelabra each earned five nominations. The warmly received Philomena earned four nominations, including best British film, best adapted screenplay, and best actress. Rush and The Wolf of Wall Street each earned four nominations as well.

In the acting categories, there are very few surprises with well-deserving nominations including Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips, Bruce Dern in Nebraska, Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street, Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine, Amy Adams in American Hustle, and Chiwetel Ejiofor in 12 Years A Slave. The only noticeable exclusions include Robert Redford for All Is Lost and Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club.

Unlike the main acting categories, the supporting acting categories are a bit more surprising. While Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong’oBradley Cooper, and Sally Hawkins each earned a nomination for their supporting roles, Jared Leto and Jonah Hill were both left out of supporting actor category.

The awards will be handed out on Sunday, February 16th at a ceremony at the Royal Opera House in London. Stephen Fry will be hosting. Read the full list of nominees below:
