Gravity leads this year’s BAFTA nominations


As awards season heats up, we’ve taken a look at the BAFTA nominations, which came out earlier today.

Some of this year’s hottest films feature prominently, such as Gravity, 12 Years a Slave, Philomena and American Hustle.

The movie with the most nominations – eleven overall, including Best Film, Original Music and Original Screenplay – was Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney (can they please just get married already?)

Philomena, a heart-wrenching story based on the tragic tale of Irish woman Philomena Lee has received great attention in the movie world following its release earlier this year. It stars Judi Dench as Philomena and Steve Coogan (who wrote the screenplay) as journalist Martin Sixsmith.

Dench is up for the Leading Actress BAFTA alongside Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Emma Thompson.

American Hustle is also set to make a rumble this awards season. The movie boasts an impressive cast of Christian Bale, Amy Adams and of course, the wonderful Jennifer Lawrence.
