BAFTA Nominations 2013

The nominations for this year’s British Academy Film Awards are in, heralding the start of the 2013 award season. Featuring in 10 categories, Steven Spielberg’s latest endeavour, Lincoln, heads this year’s nominations closely followed by Life of Pi and Les Misérables with 9 nominations apiece. In a somewhat unprecedented move, a certain British spy is recognised by the academy, Sam Mendes’ Skyfall competing for 8 awards. Skyfall is followed by 7 nominations for Argo, 6 for Anna Karenina; a surprisingly low 5 for both Django Unchained and Zero Dark Thirty, 4 for Amour, and 3 for both The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Silver Linings Playbook.

Lincoln looks set to dominate the award season, appearing to be in pole position to sweep both the Oscars and the Golden Globes as well. Along with its nod for best film, Lincoln lead Daniel Day Lewis has been shortlisted for best actor along with supporting nominations for both Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Field; however, Spielberg himself is bizarrely overlooked in the best director category. Nonetheless, the veteran director is far from the most shocking omission from the annual award ceremony. Caméra d’Or award winner, Beasts of the Southern Wild, and Moonrise Kingdom are criminally disregarded by this year’s nominations, only garnering nominations in the screenplay categories. Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers and Berberian Sound Studios are notably absent, whilst unsurprisingly, the big blockbusters of 2012 take up their usual spots amongst the technical categories.

As equally strong contenders for Best Film this year – Argo, Les Misérables, Life Of Pi, Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty could all sweep the award ceremony, so we’ll just have to wait till February 10th to find out exactly who calims what award.
