BAFTA Nominations Announced

Nominations for the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards, presented by the British Academy of Film And Television Arts (BAFTA), were announced on Wednesday. BAFTA is a British charity made up of about 6,500 voting members that rewards excellence in cinema, TV, and video games. While not seen as having much of an influence on the Academy Awards, there is inevitably much overlap between the two. In this case, the five Best Picture nominees are made up of Oscar frontrunners: "Argo," "Les Misérables," "Life of Pi," "Lincoln," and "Zero Dark Thirty."

"Lincoln" led the pack with 10 overall nominations, yet failed to secure one for director Steven Spielberg. "Les Misérables" and "Life of Pi" each scored nine nominations, but "Les Miz" director Tom Hooper failed to score a nod, which is particularly surprising given that he's a Brit himself. "Skyfall" had a great showing with eight nominations; "Anna Karenina" with seven; and 'Django Unchained" and "Zero Dark Thirty" each landed five. 

Winners will be announced in a ceremony held on Feb. 10 and hosted by Stephen Fry. A full list of nominees follows.
