A rule change means Oscar hopefuls Clint Eastwood, Robert De Niro and George Clooney cannot be entered for the 2007 Bafta film awards. Bafta has decided only movies released in the UK before its ceremony on 11 February are eligible, instead of the end of March, as in previous years. Some of the major titles expected to do well at the Academy Awards will have to wait until 2008 to compete for a Bafta. BBC reports.
