January 8, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Alfonso Curón’s Gravity has received the most nominations — 11 — for this year’s BAFTA awards, the British equivalent of the Oscars. Captain Phillips placed second with nine, and Saving Mr. Banks and Behind the Candelabra tied for third with five. (Behind the Candelabra aired on U.S. television and was therefore not eligible for most U.S. movie awards; it was distributed theatrically in the U.K.) Joining Gravity in the Best Film category, are 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle, Captain Phillips and Philomena. In the Leading Actor category, the nominees are Bruce Dern (Nebraska); Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave); Christian Bale (American Hustle); Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street); and Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips). Nominees for Leading Actress are: Amy Adams (American Hustle); Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine); Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks); Judi Dench (Philomena); and Sandra Bullock (Gravity).
