BAFTA Awards Nominations 2016


The nominations for the 2016 BAFTAs are as baffling as anything else this awards season has produced thus far. You may not see it immediately. Such a strange season this is being. CAROL and BRIDGE OF SPIES of all movies lead the total tally with 9 nominations each followed by THE REVENANT with 8. MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is missing from main categories. Tom McCarthy has no best director nod. Charlotte Rampling isn't nominated, so aren't a few other British actors. THE BIG SHORT is big, which continues to surprise me. How it slowly sneaked into the competition.
