BAFTA Nominations: 'La La Land' Leads with 11, 'Nocturnal Animals' and 'Arrival' with 9

Here's the full list of the 2017 BAFTA nominations.

On the heels of its major sweep at the Golden Globes last weekend, La La Land has once again emerged as the awards season favorite, now with 11 nominations from the recently announced 70th British Academy Film Awards. Arrival and Nocturnal Animals follow closely behind with nine nominations each from BAFTA, the British equivalent of the Oscars.

I, Daniel Blake, a film that is critical of the efficacy of the British welfare system, is up for Best Film and Outstanding British Film. Notes on Blindness, perhaps the year's most egregiously underseen film, has been justly nominated for Outstanding British Film, Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, and Best Documentary. 

Even though American Honey was made by one of Britain's foremost independent auteurs, Andrea Arnold, it was only recognized in one category: Outstanding British Film. Meanwhile, Martin Scorsese's Silence was completely shut out of the BAFTAs.

Below is the full list of nominations for this year's awards, which will take place at London's Royal Albert Hall on February 12 and can be viewed live on BBC.
