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.
No, non riuscirai mai a capire cosa c'è scritto. Ma non importa.
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.
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.
