BAFTA 2013 Nominations.

British Academy of Film and Television of BAFTA announced their nominations for 2012 movies. They are really important awards group, they are the British academy and even though their impact on the Oscar race isn't in most of the ways direct but it does matter. Both Lincoln and Les Miserables as expected showed a strong showing but surprisingly missed out on the nods for best director. Life of Pi, Argo and Zero Dark Thirty made the list apart from those two in the best film category. Skyfall showed a good showing as well and also the foreign movie Amour which got in for director, original screenplay and actress apart from foreign film. The nominees for best British film are Les Miserables, Skyfall, Seven Psychopaths, Anna Karenina and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. I am glad that Joaquin Phoenix got in the best actor here and i hope the same happens at the Oscars even though the chances of him being nominated faded long time ago. Ben Affleck surprisingly showed up out of nowhere in the same category, he hasn't been recognized by anyone for his acting so far. Some really good choices in the technical categories as well.
