"An Education" Leads BAFTA's "Long List"; "Nine" Snubbed

The "Long List" for the Orange British Academy Film Awards in 2010 has been released this morning. Lone Scherfig's "An Education" led overall mentions with a whopping 17, including picture, director and six for acting. Other films that found a considerable presence: Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" had 15 mentions, Kathryn Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker" had 12, while both James Cameron's "Avatar" and Peter Jackson's "The Lovely Bones" took 11.

Duncan Jones' "Moon" also did quite well, racking up 10 mentions, while additionally notable is that Clint Eastwood - eligible for both "Invictus" and "Gran Torino" in this year's awards - alone has five mentions. Two for producer, two for director and one for actor.

The film most hurt from the list was most definitely Rob Marshall's "Nine." Two of the musical's homegrown stars - Daniel Day-Lewis and Judi Dench - didn't make the cut, nor did the film itself, Marshall, or its cinematography (which some consider it's best asset). Though note that what looks like another major snub - Sandra Bullock not being mentioned for "The Blind Side" - is actually just a result of the film not being released in the UK yet.

"The Long List" is the result of Round One voting by members of the Academy. With 220 films entered this year, the first round of voting reduces the films down to fifteen in each category. Round Two voting, which opens today, will reduce these fifteen contenders down to the five nominations in each category. The nominations for the Orange British Academy Film Awards in 2010 will be announced on Thursday January 21. Over 6000 members of the Academy vote in the three rounds to decide the Long List, Nominations and Winners.

The winners will be announced at the Orange British Academy Film Awards at the Royal Opera House in London on February 21, 2010.

    No nomination for Tom Hardy in BRONSON and Brad Pitt gets a nod? I understand that Hollywood will give BRONSON no love ... but the Bafta's? Strange Times?
