The King’s Speech, directed by Tom Hooper and starring Colin Firth received a total of 14 nominations including Best Film. Black Swan follows with 12 while Inception is up for 9 and The Social Network, 6.

It’s also great to see some of our featured favourites from the past year up for awards. Monsters director Gareth Edwards is nominated for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is nominated in 3 categories: Adapted Screenplay, Film Not In The English Language and Noomi Repace for Leading Actress. Despicable Me is up for the Animated Film award.

The British Academy of Film was founded on April 16th 1947 as a charity by David Lean, Alexander Korda, Carol Reed, Charles Laughton, Roger Manvell together with other leading figures in the British film industry with the aim “to recognise those who had contributed outstanding creative work towards the advancement of British film.”

The Academy merged with the Guild of Television Producers and Directors in 1958 to form the Society of Film and Television, but it wasn’t until 1976 that they became the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, the BAFTA.

  1. It looks exciting, some really strong movies are in competition this year. Have not seen everything yet, but it looks like with the exception of Inception and Despicable Me, all of the nominations are very well deserved. Those two were dissappointing to me; Inception turned out to be a quite simple action flick as opposed to a thought provoking and groundbraking movie as it was suggested in the promotional campaign. I thought Despicable Me had a terribly rushed script; the evil scientist character Dr. Nefario (voiced by Russell Brand) was clearly intended to be the father of the protagonist Gru (Steve Carrel) in the beginning. They changed this some time in mid-production, but left some of the relevant dialogue in! That is such an amateurish mistake! Apart from that, Despicable Me was nothing special. They recycled ideas from before and they ended up with a mildly amusing but sometimes boring animated film.
    Looking forward to more articles on Bafta!
