    It’s arguably tougher to predict than the Oscars, but who will continue, or show for the first time, their prominence in this years awards derby, and who will be mysteriously omitted?

    Last year, Her and Dallas Buyers Club were completely shut out by BAFTA, despite them winning a combined 4 Oscars just two weeks later. Philomena faired well, as it did at the Oscars.  
    And out of the 4 acting categories, none perfectly lined up, with Hanks, Thompson, Bruhl, Damon and Winfrey all making it onto BAFTA’s shortlist. 

    Pride seems the most likely to be a key player at BAFTA, while it is a wild longshot for the Oscars. But could films like Birdman, Foxcatcher or Gone Girl be entirely left out by the Brits?

    Since they nominated Behind the Candelabra in movie awards last year, will Normal Heart qualify? I could see Matt Bomer making it in

    Behind The Candelabra had a cinematic release in the UK, then shown on TV, while The Normal Heart was shown on TV, and has had no cinema release.

    I would suspect that this year, The Imitation Game and Mr. Turner would make a killing in the nominations.

    I think Rosamund Pike might have a great shot at winning best actress – Julianne Moore won’t be eligible for Still Alice as it has a UK release date of March 5th, way after the BAFTA ceremony (and also the Oscars, which means I won’t be able to see it in time!)  Pike is bound to have strong Brit support, having been under the radar for a long time with notable supporting roles in Brit films like Pride and Prejudice and An Education. Perhaps the same could be said for Felicity Jones, but my instinct is that there’ll be slightly more enthusiasm for Pike, especially as Gone Girl has been just as popular in the UK as in the US

    Still Alice is being screened as an eligible film for Bafta voters. The explanation that would make most sense is that the release date will shortly be pulled forward to January or early February, in order to ensure its eligibility.

    In the Best Actor Bafta race I would expect to see Brit favourite Timothy Spall take one of the places. I would equally expect to see him squeezed out at the Oscars.

    Pretty sure that Dallas Buyers Club hadn’t received a cinematic release in the UK at the time of the BAFTAS last year.

    It hadn’t received the cinema release in time, but it was still eligible for nominations thanks to BAFTA screenings of the film.

    Isn’t Vanessa Redgrave in like one scene? and from what i hear it’s not an impressive scene…..so i’m not sure why people are predicting her. Yes, she’s British but that doesn’t mean a lock for a BAFTA nomination.

    OK, thanks for the info! Though I still think Pike might be an even more formidable contender here than at Oscar.

    I’m glad it seems I’ll be able to see Still Alice earlier.

    Especially not when she has never even won a BAFTA and has only ever been nominated three times. Seems like she’s even more controversial in UK than in the US.
