BAFTA AWARDS 2015 – NOMINATIONS

There are five nominees for Best Film and six for Outstanding British Film, an anomaly that underlines the British penchant for eccentricity, perhaps, reports Andrew L. Urban.There are five nominees for Best Film and six for Outstanding British Film, an anomaly that underlines the British penchant for eccentricity, perhaps, reports Andrew L. Urban.

Not surprisingly, then, the biopic of UK cosmologist, Stephen Hawking, The Theory of Everything, and the US-made but thoroughly eccentric The Grand Budapest Hotel lead the field by numbers, the latter with 11 nominations, including several technical nods.

The eccentricity continues with recognition for Birdman and of course, The Imitation Game, about the late and great eccentric computing pioneer and Enigma code breaker, Alan Turing.

The Awards ceremony, hosted by the amusingly eccentric Stephen Fry, will be presented in London on February 8, 2015.
