2013 BAFTA Nominations

The thing I like about the BAFTAs is they tend to nominate people who are deserving of an award - that he Oscars normally leave out. (See James McAvoy for The Last King of Scotland and Paul Dano for There Will Be Blood) Glad to see this hasn't changed this year. Here's a list of the nominees, my comments fill follow in green. I should throw this out there, I think the BAFTAs love Life of Pi and Skyfall a little too much.

No Leonardo DiCaprio is a mistake. He was way stronger than Tommy Lee Jones and Alan Arkin, IMO. I also kind of expected them to throw Eddie Redmayne in here for Les Mis.

Am I the only one that thought the scores for Beasts of the Southern Wild, Moonrise Kingdom and The Dark Knight rises were top notch? Do they not qualify? Am I missing something? Clearly I can't be the only person shocked that they keep getting left out.

  1. I'm actually surprised they didn't love Skyfall more. Really hope Bardem gets an Oscar nomination tomorrow.
