BAFTA Awards 2019: Complete list of nominees

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced its full list of nominees for the organization's forthcoming 2019 awards ceremony. 

Director Yorgos Lanthimos' The Favourite soared to reign supreme over the honorees, living up to its name to become the favorite of the 2019 BAFTAs with 12 nominations — including Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Best Director, Best Leading Actress (Olivia Colman), Best Supporting Actress (for both Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz), Cinematography, Editing, and Costume Design, among others. 

At the 2019 Golden GlobesThe Favourite was up for five awards, but only spun one of them into a win — Best Performance by an Actress in a Comedy or Musical Motion Picture, which went to Colman for her portrayal of Queen Anne. With so many nods to its name at this year's BAFTA Awards, The Favourite should end the evening with a few more statues than it took home at the Globes. Here's to hoping, at least. 

A Star Is Born, the musical romantic drama directed by and co-starring Bradley Cooper, earned nominations for Best Film, Best Director, Leading Actor (Cooper), Leading Actress (Lady Gaga), Adapted Screenplay, Original Music, and Sound. Damien Chazelle's Neil Armstrong biopic First Man, which hasn't received all that much attention this awards season, also earned seven nominations: Supporting Actress (Claire Foy), Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Editing, Production Design, Sound, Special Visual Effects. The film sadly didn't land Chazelle a Best Director BAFTA nomination, nor did it see leading man Ryan Gosling scoop up a nod for his performance as Armstrong. 

The divisive Bohemian Rhapsody — which has been causing major waves in Hollywood and abroad after the film, directed by Bryan Singer, who has been accused of sexual assault, earned several Golden Globe Awards earlier this month — landed BAFTA Awards nods for Outstanding British Film, Leading Actor, Cinematography, Editing, Costume Design, Makeup and Hair, and Sound.

At last, BlacKkKlansman director Spike Lee has captured the attention of international awards-givers, earning several BAFTA Award nominations — his first from the organization for directing a feature film. (It's important to note here that he did take home a special BAFTA for Outstanding Contribution to Cinema back in 2002. Still, he has never until now scored BAFTA Award nods for one of his movies.) The British Academy of Film and Television Arts nominated Lee for Best Director, BlacKkKlansman for Best Adapted Screenplay (Lee co-wrote the script with David Rabinowitz, Charlie Wachtel, and Kevin Willmott), and the movie itself for Best Film and Best Original Music. BlacKkKlansman star Adam Driver also landed a nomination for Best Supporting Actor, but leading guy John David Washington sadly didn't receive recognition for his incredible turn as Detective Ron Stallworth. 

It's surprising that British filmmaker Steve McQueen, who helmed the fantastic Widows, didn't get a nomination for Best Director. What's even more disappointing is that Widows itself failed to score a nod for Outstanding British Film. It did, however, earn Viola Davis a BAFTA Awards nomination for Supporting Actress.

The two best Marys of 2018 earned three nominations each: Mary Poppins Returns picked up ones for Original Music (Marc Shaiman), Production Design (John Myhre, Gordon Sim), and Costume Design (Sandy Powell), while Mary Queen of Scots landed ones for Costume Design, Makeup and Hair, and Supporting Actress (Margot Robbie). Neither film's top-lining ladies, Emily Blunt and Saoirse Ronan, managed to earn Leading Actress nominations this year. 

Hosted by Joanna Lumley, the 2019 BAFTA Awards will take place on Sunday, February 10 — just two weeks ahead of the 91st Annual Academy Awards. Take a look at the full list of nominees below.
