BAFTA Nominations – the When and Where and What Might Happen

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.

Last year, Their big winner was The Artist which received 12 BAFTA nominations.  And the previous year, of course, The King’s Speech won big.  Prior to that, The Hurt Locker and before that, Slumdog Millionaire.  You have to then go back to 2007 to find Atonement beating No Country for Old Men to find a mismatch.

The BAFTA is not releasing a long list this year so we really have no clue as to how it will play out.  Since the BAFTAS changed their date to happen BEFORE the Oscars only once has the Oscar Best Picture winner not been nominated for a BAFTA and that was Million Dollar Baby and I am fairly certain that it wasn’t eligible.

I have really no earthly idea how the BAFTA will go. But if  either Lincoln, Argo, Zero Dark Thirty aren’t nominated, that makes them extreme long shots to win.  For BAFTA, it’s more important what isn’t nominated than what is.  Again, like most awards this year, Oscar ballots were turned in before BAFTA’s announcement.

They don’t generally match Oscar’s 100%, when there were five.
2002 5/5
2003 3/5
2004 2/5
2005 4/5
2006 4/5
2007 3/5
2008 5/5
2009 5/5 (out of 10 noms)
2010 5/5 (out of 10 noms)
2011 3/5 (out of 9 noms)

As far as the acting categories, it mostly applies that you need a nod there to win but of course, several Best Actress winners weren’t BAFTA nommed and went on to win.  Best Director is mostly the same — their nominations don’t match but to win you are better off getting a nomination there.

I would guess, though, that their nominees might look something like:

Best Picture
Skyfall
Lincoln
Zero Dark Thirty
Argo
Silver Linings Playbook, Beasts of the Southern Wild or Les Miserables

I have absolutely no clue here, I must say, other than Skyfall for Best Picture.  Then again, Skyfall could get bumped for Best Picture and end up in Best British Film. I expect Helen Mirren, Daniel Craig, Daniel Day-Lewis, Tom Wilkinson and Judi Dench will all make it in.  Beyond that, it’s a mystery!

  1. I’m guessing that’s on either side of midnight for us.

  2. 7:45 GMT (that’s around the time they announced last year) would be 23:45 on Tuesday PST

  3. Christophe

    7:35 GMT = 2:35A.M E.T/11:35PM P.T.

  4. “I don’t know what time zone they mean by that.”

    For real? :)

  5. Christophe

    For those who want to have a say in the BAFTAS, you can vote for the rising star award:

    http://explore.ee.co.uk/bafta?WT.mc_id=OFF_EE_V_bafta&WT.tsrc=Vanity

    I’m still hesitating between Suraj Sharma and Alicia Vikander… what do you think?

  6. Probably 7:35a.m. GMT.

    I’m not so sure on Skyfall for Best Film. They do like to try to match Oscar; when there’s a British film in contention, they often include it. But it may not have enough prestige. I suspect it could do similarly to Casino Royale – be rewarded with a Best British Film nomination among many others, but fail to make it in to Best Film.

    Lincoln didn’t go down very well with the London Critics’ Circle, whereas Zero Dark Thirty did. It’s right up BAFTA’s street.

    Will there be an official predictions contest, btw, Sasha?

    Also, Million Dollar Baby was the victim of screener FAIL from the studio. It was eligible for the BAFTA, but not released in the UK until after voting, and there was a problem with screeners. I think either none were sent out, or too few. It didn’t get a single BAFTA nomination. Sideways suffered a similar problem that same year – it did get a nomination, for Adapted Screenplay, which is went on to win.

  7. I hope Marion Cotillard be nominated for Rust and Bone in Academy Awards and Bafta’s

  8. Local time of London,UK, or GMT. Lincoln, Argo, and Life of pi are locks for Best Picture. So I would add Life of Pi to your list to BP nominations. Life of Pi is both well received by critics and audience alike. It is respectable in the box office in the US, in line with other feature films made from previous Booker prize winners such as the Schindler’s list and the English patient, but it is considered a hit in the UK and elsewhere. During the first week of January 2013, Life of pi ranks #1 at the worldwide box office.

  9. 7.35am UK time

    CASINO ROYALE nabbed 9 BAFTA noms back in 2006/07 so I fully expect SKYFALL to do as well, if not better. Judi Dench is a long-time BAFTA favourite and she’s a shoo-in for a Best Supporting Actress nomination for SKYFALL. Likewise Roger Deakins (a three-times winner, mostly recently for TRUE GRIT). I suspect SKYFALL will be like TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY last year – pick up the most BAFTA noms (or joint most) but not do so well at the Oscars.

    LES MISERABLES have been getting raves from the British critics and I can see that winning the Best Picture.

    Daniel Day Lewis is assured of a Best Actor nomination and will win for LINCOLN. He’s a three time BAFTA winner (MY LEFT FOOT, GANGS OF NEW YORK and THERE WILL BE BLOOD). I guess 4 Best Actor wins will be a record.

  10. Yeah, I think Life of Pi topped the box office in the UK, didn’t it? Still, with only five Best Picture nominees, and with the BAFTAs being a little tricky to call, it may not make it. Ang Lee will probably be in for Best Director, even if Pi’s not in Picture.

  11. Christophe

    @Paddy
    lol! Ted topped the UK box office too! Yet should it be nominated for best picture at the Baftas? Well I personally think it should, but I might be the only one…

  12. I’m not using Life of Pi’s box office success to argue that it should be nominated. I’m using it to argue that it is popular in the UK. It’s better-reviewed than Ted, and also more recent, and more akin to the British Academy’s usual tastes.

  13. Christophe

    @paddy
    I was actually making fun of Lyon’s remark and backing up yours… but I do like Life of Pi so I sure hope it gets in.

  14. I can see them singling out “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” since the film was popular and had so many good British performances: Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Penelope Wilton, Maggie Smith and Judi Dench.

    I also think Maggie Smith has a chance as Best Actress in Quartet (but not sure it has opened in the UK yet).

    Skyfall will definitely be the big winner for nominations. I predict 12.

    It’s possible for a movie to be nominated by BAFTA in both categories, Best British Film and Best Film. Happens all the time. But they have been fairly realistic about making sure any British films that cross over to the broader pond-crossing category can really stand up to scrutiny. Has to be something like The Queen or Atonement to play with the heavy Hollywood hitters.

    And we should probably expect Les Mis to be claimed as a British Film, right? BAFTA says United 93 was a British film.

  16. Christophe

    @Ryan
    Does it work like the London Film Critics Circle where they only vote for Best Film and then pick up the 5 highest-ranked British Films out of that list for the Best British Film category?

  17. Christophe

    I mean instead of voting separately in both categories?

  18. The BAFTAs will be so tricky this year if they heavily nominate Skyfall and Marigold. People are already predicting Bardem and Smith for the Oscars, and after this, Bardem will have BFCA-SAG-BAFTA and Smith SAG-BAFTA (and GG recognition for her other film and Downton Abbey). I’m not feeling either of them for an Oscar nod, but you never know. It’s not like BAFTA will recognize people on the fringe like Ann Dowd and Kidman (ineligible).

    Anyone have a list of which films are ineligible this year?

  19. Profile photo of Ryan Adams

    Christophe

    Very good question. The answer is one of the millions of things I don’t know.

    While we’re using Casino Royale as basis to predict what might happen to Skyfll, are there really a lot of people who think Skyfall is a better movie than Casino Royale? I don’t.

  20. Did the BAFTAs ever release their Long List? Did they do away with that this year in the rush to get their nominees announced before the Oscars?

  21. Profile photo of Ryan Adams

    No longlist from BAFTA this year, Shane.

  22. Skyfall will be big of course but I think it will go under Best British Film, then BD (Mendes), BA (Dench), supp actor (Bardem) maybe supp actress if they go all out for the 50th anniversary (Harris), Cinematography (Deakins), Song (Adele), score, editing, etc.

    >>€ Films to get BP noms will be Best Exotic Marigold (Smith, Wilkinson), Anna Karenina (better rated by Brit critics), Les Miz, Zero Dark Thirty and maybe Lincoln.

    >>>DDL is in for BA and Spielberg for BD but not sure who else from Lincoln will make it, Lawrence for SLP but that will be it for that film, Lee for Life of Pi.

  23. I preferred Casino Royale, but Skyfall is really well done from a technical standpoint. Given how well it’s done with the BFCA and SAG, I’d be surprised if they don’t include it in Best Picture.

  25. Million Dollar Baby was eligible. It didn’t receive a nod.
    By the way, why do you people list The Deep Blue Sea? Wasn’t it eligible last year and snubbed?

  26. david leary

    I think juno temple could score a bafta nom for best actress for little birds or a supporting nom for killer Joe the baftas usually take care of their own

  27. Christophe

    @davidleary
    juno temple is already listed for The rising star award. You can vote for her here:

    http://www.ee.co.uk/bafta

    nonetheless, I belizve the rising star award only includes performers who were not selected for the main acting categories.

  28. Yes, deep blue sea was only eligible last year

  29. Christophe

    @Christophe
    You’re so full of s***! It happened several times that a rising star nominee also snagged a nom in the main acting categories (Michelle Williams, Ellen Page, Carey Mulligan, Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield), but I do believe they shouldn’t allow such things and leave spots for other actors, especially in a year like this one when there are so many great performances.

  30. Skyfall, Bardem, Dench and Tom Holland might all show up somewhere (Holland in British). Watts probably, too. Apart from these, your usual suspects.

  31. Not really feeling Les Miz here. Sure it is a lazy default pick but HFPA didn’t go gaga over it. Actors may be mentioned but not much more.

  32. There is a special committee that selects the Best British Film nominees.

    “They give a time, 7:35, but I don’t know what time zone they mean by that.”

    You’re not serious, are you? :D Maybe it’s a bit weird for Americans to grasp, but when there’s only one time zone in a country, that’s the one times are given in, and not American time tones.

  33. david leary

    Anybody think Bill Murray will get a bafta nom for best actor? He deserves a bafta nom and Oscar nom

  34. They love DDL, but all this talk about whether they Lincoln will play internationally is confusing to me. I mean, the Brits do well internationally with historical films like The King’s Speech, The Queen, Iron Lady etc….
    we eat that stuff up. If they ignore Lincoln or Argo but salivate over a Bond film – what does that say about their own nationalistic, anglo-phile selves?

  35. Are you serious Yvette? What’s it to you who and what the Brits want to award? And what does it say about them? Well, maybe that’s the kind of movies they like. Maybe they are fond of movies that resonate with their culture, just like everyone else. People are different, and just because someone has a different sensibility than you, and won’t like or feel at all emotional about the movies you like, doesn’t mean you can call them names. Believe me, “Lincoln” won’t get any Polish movie awards. Now call me a nationalist, please.

  36. Bjork's Swan Dress

    I happen to fly by the BAFTA headquarters every morning for my daily wing flex, and luckily got the chance to see into the secret room, many stories high, that houses the nominee list until its unveiling tomorrow. They left a window open, can you believe it? I flew right in and take a quick glance.

    I must say I’m surprised by many of the choices. I liked “Frankenweenie” but I wouldn’t have pegged it for a Best Film nomination. Pleased for all the love for “The Deep Blue Sea”, a truly extraordinary film. I cried so much my feathers started wilting. And I, for one, don’t think “Zero Dark Thirty” suggests that torture led to the intel that helped us find UBL. So I was pleased to see the voters turn out so big for that film.

    I’ve unfortunately never been on the BAFTA Red Carpet, though I doubt anything will ever top my time on the Oscar carpet. I have seen it all, as they said.

  37. Christophe

    @Bjork’s Swan Dress
    Frankenweenie would totally deserve to be a BP nominee… It’s as good if not better than Up and Toy Story 3.

  38. I think the Bafta’s nominations will be…

    Ryan, what do you think of my Bafta’s predictions? Am I wrong?

  39. Has the DGA contest closed btw?

  40. Expect Les Mis in spades, everywhere.

  41. Could both Dench and Smith receive Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress nods?

  42. Bryce Forestieri

    Best British film I saw in 2012 is Andrea Arnold’s WUTHERING HEIGHTS!! It’s also one of the better cinematographies of the year; leagues better than SKYFALL’s which has been overpraised in my opinion.

  43. Wuthering Heights is such a great film. The BAFTAs missed a good ‘un last year in not nominating it.

  44. phantom

    Well, taking into consideration that BAFTA is rather good at predicting the Oscar-surprise (Oldman in 2011, Bardem in 2010) if someone so-far-overlooked turns up in an acting category, I think it will be safe to assume that contender is also closer to that Oscar top5 than we think. My money is on Knightley or McGregor, maybe someone from LesMis OR a British veteran (Maggie Smith for Quartet, Judi Dench for Skyfall, Michael Caine for The Dark Knight Rises, Anthony Hopkins for Hitchcock, Ian McKellen for The Hobbit) and frankly, Suraj Sharma wouldn’t shock me that much, either.

  45. Christophe

    @phantom
    my money is on Tom holland from the impossible
    http://todayentertainment.today.com/_news/2013/01/07/16302383-impossible-actor-tom-holland-movie-completely-changed-my-life?lite

    Mark Ruffalo calls him ” fantastic” in his endorsement piece of Naomi Watts and most critics, even those who didn’t like the movie, agree that they both deliver very strong performances.

  46. Danemychal

    I predict it will be very fucking British.

  47. phantom

    Christophe

    Good call, I really loved his performance, I don’t consider him THAT seriously because he is in the lead race and damn, that category is massive this year. Of course a Bafta nomination could convince me to move him higher on my list, he is 14th at the moment :

    FRONTRUNNER
    1. Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln)

    ON-PAPER LOCKS
    2. Hugh Jackman (Les Misérables)
    3. Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook)
    4. John Hawkes (The Sessions)
    5. Denzel Washington (Flight)

    MAJOR THREAT
    6. Joaquin Phoenix (The Master)

    POTENTIAL SURPRISE
    7. Richard Gere (Arbitrage)
    8. Jack Black (Bernie)
    9. Bill Murray (Hyde Park on Hudson)

    POTENTIAL SHOCKER
    10. Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained)
    11. Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi)
    12. Ben Affleck (Argo)

    ONLY WITH BAFTA LOVE (=British-vote)
    13. Anthony Hopkins (Hitchcock)
    14. Tom Holland (The Impossible)
    15. Denis Lavant (Holy Motors)

  48. Bryce Forestieri

    @phanton

    Jean-Louis Trintignant?!

  49. I hope a lot of nominations for The Impossible,this year most strong and moving picture also for the direction of Bayona,the special effets and the great performaces of the cast,especially the wonderful Naomi Watts for her tour de force hauting performace.

  50. phantom

    Bryce Forestieri

    No buzz whatsoever, however if he made the Bafta-cut, it would be a whole different ball game. Emmanuelle Riva has considerably better buzz and even she is struggling at the moment as far as traction goes. Both could make a glorious last minute comeback, though, we’ll see. Problem with Trintignant is, that his category has 6 damn strong contenders (Day-Lewis, Jackman, Cooper, Hawkes, Washington, Phoenix), then 3 viable surprises with not completely hopeless perception (Golden Globe nominees Gere, Black, Murray) and then 3 more lacking precursor-love but potentially benefitting from being leads in VERY strong BP-contenders (Foxx, Sharma, Affleck). That’s 12 already for 5 slots. In a weaker year, Trintignant could have been one of those 12, but 2012 was simply too strong and competitive for lead actor performances.

  51. No way I can make it till 2:35am, will just have to wait till 7, hopefully we can replay the nomination announcement!

    I am hoping the livestreaming is worldwide.

    And I guess since BAFTA is British, thus supposedly using the UK time schedule, it’s going to be a couple of hours or so before Tuesday midnight in my place somewhere in Asia Pacific. (It’s Tuesday late afternoon now.) Looking forward to it.

  55. Glenn UK

    Says on the BAFTA website that nominations are to be annonced on the 9th (Wednesday)!!!! Another day – sigh!

  56. On the West Coast of the USA it’s still going to be the 8th.

  57. david leary

    The surprise of the baftas Juno temple scores best actress nom for little birds bank it!!!!!!!

  58. It’s perfectly conceivable that Smith and Dench each get two nods:

    Dench – Best Actress (Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Best Supporting Actress (Skyfall)

    Smith – Best Actress (Quartet) and Best Supporting Actress (Best Exotic Marigold Hotel)

    I certainly hope so! Their performances are so seemless in these films.

  59. About 3.5hrs to go!
