La La Land Dominates BAFTA Nominations with 11 Nods

Updated

A version of this article originally appeared on ew.com.

Yet another day of sun for Damien Chazelle’s La La Land: the breakout musical, fresh off sweeping the Golden Globes on Sunday night, picked up 11 nominations at the BAFTA Awards on Tuesday, including Best Film, Best Director for Chazelle, Leading Actress for Emma Stone, and Leading Actor for Ryan Gosling.

Arrival and awards season surprise Nocturnal Animals finished with nine nods each at the BAFTAs, followed by Manchester By the Sea with six nominations. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Hacksaw Ridge, Lion, and I, Daniel Blake landed five nominations each.

Joining La La Land in the Best Film category is Arrival, I, Daniel Blake, Manchester by the Sea, and Moonlight, which scored four total nominations but failed to secure Barry Jenkins a nod in the Best Director category. Jenkins, who won best director from the National Board of Review and secured a Golden Globes nomination in the category as well (eventually losing to Chazelle), was left off a list that includes Chazelle, Denis Villeneuve (Arrival), Ken Loach (I, Daniel Blake), Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea), and Tom Ford (Nocturnal Animals). Jenkins, however, was nominated in the original screenplay category for writing Moonlight (at the Oscars, Moonlight will compete in the adapted screenplay race).

Other surprises: Denzel Washington, a presumed nominee in the best actor category for Fences, was ignored — possibly in favor of Jake Gyllenhaal for Nocturnal Animals. The Lead Actor nominees otherwise stayed letter-to-letter with the recent Screen Actors Guild Award nominations: Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea), Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge), Gosling, and Viggo Mortensen (Captain Fantastic).

In the Lead Actress category, Golden Globes winner Isabelle Huppert was left out — but her film Elle was not released in the U.K. within the eligibility window. So fellow Globes winner Stone is joined in the best actress race by Natalie Portman (Jackie), Amy Adams (Arrival), SAG surprise-turned-BAFTA surprise Emily Blunt (The Girl on the Train), and Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins). For Streep — whom President-elect Donald Trump called “over-rated” this week after her takedown of Trump at the Golden Globes — this is her 15th BAFTA nod.
