  • Brennan

    So Silence is dead and ATJ will be a thing.

    • DaKardii

      Yep.

    • Teriek Williams

      I never saw Silence as a real contender. It didn’t make the splash I anticipated an epic by Scorsese would. Once it didn’t, it felt like a goner. I didn’t suspect Aaron Taylor-Johnson though. I thought Michael Shannon would have been the better choice.

  • Phill Milner

    No Lucas Hedges makes me cry. Moonlight in picture but no director is curious, especially considering all the other love for NA.

    • DaKardii

      For Nocturnal Animals, I can easily see Tom Ford being nominated for Best Director, ATJ being nominated for Best Supporting Actor, and the film being nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay. I can also see Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Shannon being dark horses for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, respectively. As for the film being nominated for Best Picture, Amy Adams being nominated for Best Actress (for this film, she’s definitely being nominated for Arrival), and Laura Linney being nominated for Best Supporting Actress, those are not happening.

      Also, Lucas Hedges is more than likely done. In my opinion, he needed a BAFTA nomination in order to stay in the race for Best Supporting Actor. He’s in the dark horse category now, for me.

      • Phill Milner

        I would agree with you on Hedges, but BAFTA has a rising star award which makes me think they felt that they could nominate him for that instead of Best Supporting Actor. He’s still in my lineup for the Oscars.

        • Peter Templeman

          The rising star award is voted by the public. I think it’s just the typical case of young actors getting overlooked.

          • 22cinema11

            That could very well be the case – maybe it’s similar to last year with Jacob Tremblay who wasn’t nominated for the Oscars, Golden Globes and BAFTAs despite a lot of critical praise and an SAG nod. But if the Academy loves “Manchester by the Sea” as a whole, maybe he’s in the mix again.

    • Teriek Williams

      The bigger ceremonies are not kind to younger actors. He did get a SAG nomination and a BAFTA Rising Star Award. I didn’t see him going any further, but there’s still the chance of an Oscar nomination.

  • Dylan Randazzo

    Is Zootopropolis a different film from Zootopia? Or does it have a different title around the world?

    • Adam Lawrence

      Same movie, different title in Europe. There’s a zoo in Denmark that has the name “Zootopia” trademarked

    • Jonas Grundnig

      In Austria, which is Where I live, it’s
      called Zoomania.

    • Tastes like candy

      As someone else said. It’s just called diffent names in different countries. It’s pretty common! For example it’s called Zootopie in France.

  • Teriek Williams

    It stands to reason Denzel would get no BAFTA love. Denzel Washington has never been nominated for a BAFTA, ever. As for Moonlight, Barry Jenkins was nominated for screenplay. But in reality, Moonlight doesn’t appeal to a group of British film insiders.

  • Alex German

    So is Emily Blunt a real oscar contender now? Even though Huppert wasn’t eligible for Elle with the BAFTAs

    • Serge

      The BAFTAs are all about British pride. They signify nothing for the Oscars and the rest of the awards. They push their own people towards awards.

  • Lakeshow

    Can’t believe that Denzel has never been nominated for a BAFTA. Loved the Nocturnal noms though.

  • Luke McGowan

    well 20th Century Women is dead and Fences is looking pretty stale too. Could Viola be Christopher Plummer in Beginners?

  • MovieManiac14

    Really happy with the Barry Jenkins director omission, but no Denzel in the Lead Actor category is very odd, considering they nominated Davis for Supporting Actress. I’m curious on how Gyllenhaal took his place.

    • Kasai Waller

      Are you kidding me? Barry Jenkins definitely should have been nominated. If he was white you would be rooting for him.

  • N.J.

    Does Denzel’s omission point to a possible Michelle Williams victory? Yes, Viola was still nominated, but it seems the support for the film wasn’t very strong if its lead actor was not included. Does this give Michelle the upper hand?

    • Kasai Waller

      No, it doesn’t. British actress Naomi Harris has a better chance of winning.
