With the new year well and truly underway, we're now approaching the heat of Awards season. All the award-hopefuls are currently releasing all over the world, and nominations for the big award ceremonies and shows are starting to roll in too. And, now, the BAFTA nominations have arrived.

The Golden Globes were the other night, and Damien Chazelle's La La Land made quite the impression, snagging every award it was up for. And it looks like that was only the top of the iceberg because the film leads the way for this year's EE BAFTA's too, with a whopping total of 11 nominations including Best Picture, Best Director and more.

It's also nice to see two of my favourite films of 2016, Hell or High Water and Nocturnal Animals, getting some attention too - with Jake Gyllenhaal up for a deserved Best Actor award for the latter. Nocturnal Animals, alongside Denis Villeneuve's incredible Arrival follow La La Land with 9 nominations each. British hit I, Daniel Blake is getting some love too, with Best Film and Best Director nods, which is so great and refreshing to see too.

Lord Stephen Fry will be hosting the BAFTAs, which will take place on Sunday, February 12th.
