BAFTA 2011: Black Swan, True Grit, The King’s Speech
The British Academy of Film Awards just announced the nominees for the 2011 show and The King’s Speech, Black Swan and True Grit lead the way.
British Academy of Film Awards (BAFTA) 2011 just announced the nominees for its highly anticipated ceremony. Colin Firth and his film The King’s Speech leads the way with a whopping 14 nominations including Best Actor. Of course the Mila Kunis – Natalie Portman film Black Swan comes in 2nd place with 12 nominations. With the 2011 Golden Globe Awards out of the way, Awards season is officially underway!
The BAFTA’s are a pretty big deal as most say it is the British equivalent to our Oscars. Apart from The King’s Speech and Black Swan, several other amazing movies are nominated. The Christopher Nolan film Inception which stars Leonardo DiCaprio received nine nominations. James Franco and his 127 Hours film received eight and then there is True Grit. The western remake by the Coen Brothers also received eight nominations and with a cast that includes: Matt Damon, Jeff Bridges, Josh Brolin and Hailee Steinfeld, I’d expect no less.
It will surely be a night to remember when the 2011 British Academy of Film Awards (BAFTA) takes place at London’s Royal Opera House on February 13th.
