2017 BAFTA Nominations: 'La La Land', 'Arrival', And 'Nocturnal Animals' Lead The Pack

La La Land is on a roll. Just days after scooping up a record seven awards at the Golden Globes, Damien Chazelle's musical romance has picked up an impressive eleven BAFTA Awards nominations, leading this year's pack of contenders. Not far behind are Arrival and Nocturnal Animals, with nine each. Read the full list of 2017 BAFTA Awards Nominations below. 

Going into this year's awards race, La La LandMoonlight, and Manchester by the Sea had been pegged as this year's frontrunners. Meanwhile there's only so much the BAFTA Awards can tell us about how the Oscar race will shake out, there's no denying La La Land has momentum on its side right now. Meanwhile, BAFTA voters seemed disappointingly cool on Moonlight, giving it only four nominations. Though it managed to squeeze into the Best Film category, Barry Jenkins was shut out of Best Director. On the flip side, Nocturnal Animals is doing surprisingly well.

Other notable snubs included star and director Denzel Washington for Fences (though his co-star Viola Davis snagged a nomination), the entire cast of Hidden Figures (it did get an Adapted Screenplay nod), freshly minted Golden Globe winner Isabelle Huppert for Elle, and everyone involved with Martin Scorsese's Silence. And while Ruth Negga is up for the EE Rising Star Award, neither she nor anyone else was specifically recognized for Loving.

And for those noticing that the 2017 BAFTA nominations list looks a bit... homogenous, it's worth mentioning that while the organization recently instituted a new policy excluding films that do not meet their standards for inclusivity, those new rules won't take effect until 2019.

Here's the full list of 2017 BAFTA nominations. Winners will be announced February 12.
