BAFTA Film Nominations

Herein, some of the BAFTA nominees. The list of nominees differs a bit from some of the other award nomination lists this year. Notice the love for the British spy thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which looks terrific; the all-around love for Drive and Bridesmaids and the lack of directing nods for Alexander Payne and Woody Allen.

Visit for the full list of nominees. BAFTA Awards will be handed out on February 12.
