BAFTA reveal the nominees for the 65th annual British Academy Film Awards

Following on from its success at the Golden Globes on Sunday night, The Artist leads the nominations for the 65th annual British Academy Film Awards with nods in an impressive twelve categories including Best Film, Best Director (Michel Hazanavicius) and Best Leading Actor (Jean Dujardin). The acclaimed silent feature will contest the Best Film Award against fellow Golden Globes winner The Descendants, along with Drive, The Help and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, with the latter receiving eleven nominations in total.

Meanwhile Hugo picked up nine nominations, with Martin Scorsese contesting the Best Director gong against Hazanavicius, Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive), Tomas Alfredson (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin), in addition to being this year’s recipient of the prestigious BAFTA Fellowship.

The nominees were announced this morning by Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe and actress Holliday Grainger at BAFTA HQ, and you can check out the full list right here…
