  • BAFTA Nominees Announced with ‘The Shape of Water’ Taking the Lead

The crime drama "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", and "Darkest Hour", set in the early days of World War II, received nine nominations each. Dubbed the big surprises of the ceremony, each film has been nominated for eight awards. Other nominations in the same category at the British equivalent of the Oscars, commonly known as the Baftas, include "Call Me by Your Name", "Dunkirk" and "Darkest Hour", the Winston Churchill biopic. Timothée Chalamet is nominated for the Best Actor category (as well as the public voted category EE Rising Star), Luca Guadagnino is nominated for Best Director, and the film itself is nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Film.

What all three films have in common is that they were directed by men.

The BAFTA nominations have been announced, with a few notable omissions.

The team behind Brit indie hit Lady Macbeth, which was nominated for both outstanding British film and outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer, also added their delight at the recognition.

The same could also be said for Mary J Blige, whose turn in Mudbound - Netflix's bright spark going into awards season - earned her a Golden Globe nod.

"The Shape of Water" is a fantastical feature about a 1960s research facility in which a janitor forms a relationship with an amphibious creature being held captive.

The Disaster Artist failed to win a single nomination, despite James Franco (who also directed) taking home the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy. Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson both received nominations for supporting actor.
