BAFTA Film Awards 2018 – Nominations!

It’s that time of the year again where we celebrate the best in the film industry! Award season is, indeed, upon us as we  rejoice in a whole year of absolutely spectacular movies.

The BAFTAs have well and truly kicked off. First exciting bit of news is that Joanna Lumley is now our new host. As NO ONE  predicted, we’re definitely sure she is going to be INCREDIBLE!

Now onto the film nominations. The Shape of Water leads the way with 12 nominations which is exciting but the industry does not waver from their usually plans so Three Billboards, Call Me By Your Name, Get Out, and The Shape of Water all have nominations under the belt.

The biggest difference is the inclusion of God’s Own Country and Lady Macbeth who have scored some impressive nominations as well as the nod for Hugh Grant’s terribly brilliant turn in Paddington 2. As well as this is the inclusion of Film Stars Don’t Die n Liverpool!
