'Lincoln' leads Bafta nominations with 10 citations

MUMBAI: Steven Spielberg?s biopic ?Lincoln? is leading the Bafta nominations with 10 nods including for Picture, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress and Adapted Screenplay. But surprisingly its helmer Steven Spielberg has not been nominated which might hurt its chances to win the top prize. The show takes place on 11 February 2013 in London.

?Les Miserables? and ?Life of Pi? have each received nine nominations including Best Picture. Also competing for Best Picture are ?Argo? and ?Zero Dark Thirty?. Missing from the list is ?Silver Linings Playbook? which has been nominated in other categories like actor and actress. ?Django Unchained? also missed the cut. However its director Quentin Tarantino has been nominated for directing and for his screenplay.

?Les Miserables? has also been nominated for Best British Film. But as was the case with ?Lincoln? its director Tom Hooper has not been nominated. For it to win Best British Film it has to fend off competition from the James Bond film ?Skyfall?. Also competing here are ?The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel?, ?Anna Karenina? and ?Seven Psychopaths?.

Films competing in the foreign language category are ?Amour?, ?The Hunt?, ?Rust And Bone?, ?Headhunters? and ?The Intouchables?.

Daniel Day Lewis is the favourite to win best actor for playing ?Lincoln?. Other nominees are Joaquin Phoenix for ?The Master?, Bradley Cooper for ?Silver Linings Playbook?, Hugh Jackman for ?Les Miserables? and a surprise nominee Ben Affleck for ?Argo?.

The best actress nominees are Jessica Chastain for ?Zero Dark Thirty?, Jennifer Lawrence for ?Silver Linings Playbook?, Emmanuelle Riva for ?Amour?, Marion Cotillard for ?Rust and Bone? and Helen Mirren for ?Hitchcock?.
