Colin Firth’s The King’s Speech leads the BAFTA’s race


18 January 2011

It's awards season, so that means that the BAFTA's are on the way. Today the nominations were announced and unsurprisingly Colin Firth's The King's Speech is leading the charge with a staggering 14 nominations closely followed by Black Swan with 12.

The other big hitters include Christopher Nolan's Inception which received nine nods and 127 Hours and True Grit (so cruelly overlooked by the Globes) each got 8.

The Social Network starring new Spider-Man Andrew Garfield took six nods and Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland received five nods in technical categories.

Unsurprisingly, The Kids Are All Right and Made in Dagenham each received four nominations, followed by the three taken by Toy Story 3, The Fighter and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Noomi Rapace and Hailee Steinfeld are both nominated for their leading roles in True Grit and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo respectively, while Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield go head to head in the Rising Star Award.
