The 2013 Bafta Nominations Announced! ‘Lincoln’ Leads!

baftaOn what is a strong indicator on how the Oscars will sway it looks like LINCOLN is the much loved title of this years pack – The best film category is identical to the DGA Award noms this year as well. I think its LINCOLN’s year – especially in the acting categories but strangely Spielberg wasn’t nominated for Best Director. Quentin Tarantino has shown up for Screenplay and Director for DJANGO UNCHAINED and it’s also good to see MOONRISE KINGDOM in there for screenplay. Below are the nominations for your perusal  – my tips in bold!

The BAFTAS are awarded on SUNDAY FEBRUARY 10, 2013.
