The press release announcing the BAFTA nominations on January 9th has just been sent out. They give a time, 7:35, but I don’t know what time zone they mean by that.
The BAFTA noms will livestreamed at bafta.org and full nominations at 7:45. Again, I am not yet sure what time zone we’re talking about.
What to look for in the BAFTAs are potential trends up or down for certain films.
Expect to see: a big splash for Skyfall, a lot of nominations for Les Miserables (conversely, if those aren’t there, as expected), whether the Brits have gone for Lincoln or not; there’s this notion that the film might not play internationally. Where Zero Dark Thirty will sit — they gave Bigelow and Boal a big win for The Hurt Locker.
