Denzel Washington has never received a competive BAFTA nomination. Also, does anyone know if Flight has opened in the UK?December 19, 2012 at 11:53 am #79106
I dont think it opens until Feb in the UK. But it has opened in Turkey, Egypt, UAE, Ukraine, Lebanon, and Russia.
Well well. What a line up of familiar, cool-aid drinking nominees. Like fhe Skyfall noms though…..December 19, 2012 at 12:04 pm #79107
If its the bafta’s then Maggie is getting nominations for quatet and marigold hotel. and knightly will get nominated.
The other 3 in the best actress category will probably be
Naomi Watts, Helen Mirren, Emmanuelle Riva
Next in line
Jennifer Lawrence and marion cotillard.
1. Naomi Watts
2. Maggie Smith
3. Keira Knightly
4. Helen Mirren
5. Emmanuelle Riva
6. Jennifer Lawrence
7. Marion CotillardDecember 19, 2012 at 12:25 pm #79108
I don’t think Weisz is eligible, The Deep Blue Sea opened a few months earlier here in Britain than in the US and missed out last year on BAFTA nominations.December 19, 2012 at 12:29 pm #79109
LOL at everybody predicting Keira Knightley. She’s not happening. Anywhere. She didn’t even get a Globe nom which was more easy.
Just because she’s British? No way. If we’re talking about british contenders then Mirren (Hitchcock), Dench (Marigold Hotel) and Smith (Quartet) are all ahead of her. Lawrence, Chastain, Cotillard, Watts, Riva and Wallis are more likely then Knightley, too.
BTW, I’m not saying because I don’t like her or I don’t like the movie. I really like her and I didn’t see the movie. It’s just a fact.December 19, 2012 at 12:42 pm #79110
For what it’s worth, ZD30 had an LA screening for BAFTA, large auditorium, sold out, with Bigelow/Boal speaking – so it is clearly eligible. My friend (Irish, does hair/make up) who is a member said it was the most enthusiastic screening she had ever gone to.
The two British reviews I know of for the film are both raves – The Guardian (the closest thing to the NYTImes there) and Screen (their Variety, Hollywood Rep), the same level as the US.
If people are discounting it because of other group announcements, I think that those do require films to actually open up in the UK calendar year 2012 to qualify, although if someone knows more, please correct me.
Basically, I see no reason why it shouldn’t be guessed nearly as highly there as with the Oscars.December 19, 2012 at 12:47 pm #79111
Out of the Brits I think Judi Dench has the best shot of getting a nomination for Skyfall in supporting. Skyfall should get in best picture.December 19, 2012 at 1:06 pm #79112
Although I someone doubt, I wonder if Denzel can get his first nomination and win. They know they are wrong for not nominating him.December 19, 2012 at 2:14 pm #79113
You can find the list of entered films on the following page:
Supporting Actress is not that great, so I hope they don’t forget about Janet McTeer who was absolutely brilliant in “Albert Nobbs”.December 20, 2012 at 3:09 am #79114
They didn’t nominate Harry Potter last year, which was even bigger of sorts compared to Skyfall. Do you guys think they’d go for Skyfall?December 20, 2012 at 3:28 am #79115
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 bombed with the regional critics awards. Skyfall is faring better. And it is also doing better at the British box office.
