The 2017 Bafta Nominations Have Been Announced

Awards season is now in full swing, with the Golden Globes on Sunday night revealing some of the best films of the past year. And now, the Bafta film award 2017 nominations have been announced – and it looks set to be a tough competition for the golden statues this year.

La La Land, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s gorgeous new musical, leads the way with a staggering 11 nominations – perhaps no surprise after their sweeping success at the Golden Globes earlier this week. Sci-fi thriller Arrival also dominates the list with three nominations, with lead Amy Adams up for leading actress alongside Emily Blunt for The Girl On The Train. Eddie Redmayne’s popular Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them has also enjoyed a host of nominations, including Outstanding British Film, Production Design, and Sound. 

The ceremony for the awards will be held at the Royal Albert Hall in London on 12th February. It’s certain to be a glamorous night!
