EE BAFTA Film Awards 2014 - Nominations. Awards News

The 2014 EE BAFTA nominations have been announced this morning (8th January, 2014), and Alfonso Cuaron’s ‘Gravity‘ scored 11 nods from the British Academy including Best Film, Best British Film, Best Director and Leading Actress for Sandra Bullock. ‘12 Years A Slave‘ and ‘American Hustle‘ came away with 10 nominations each, with ‘Captain Phillips‘ notching nine nods, followed by ‘Behind The Candelabra‘ and ‘Saving Mr Banks‘ – both of which have 5 mentions each.
 

Both Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson have been nominated  in the leading actor and actress categories – although not for the same movie, despite them both starring in ‘Saving Mr Banks‘. ‘Philomena‘ was also mentioned, with Dame Judi Dench being nominated in the Best Actress category, and Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope in the Adapted Screenplay category. It’s safe to say that there are some great British talent being recognised this year, and long may it continue!
