Though we've got our minds on the Golden Globes ceremony this Sunday, the nominees for the EE British Academy Film Awards have been released and they are exciting!
Wes Anderson's film The Grand Budapest Hotel leads the pack with 11 BAFTA nominations including Best Picture, but Birdman and The Theory of Everything aren't far behind with 10 nominations each (including for both best actor and best actress). The BAFTAs also features their Rising Star Award, which nominates actors who've had a strong year in film and show potential for a very successful career. Shailene Woodley, Margot Robbie, Jack O'Connell, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Miles Teller are all in the running for this honor.
