2019 BAFTA Nominations Show Plenty Of Love For 'The Favourite', Nearly Shuts Out 'Black Panther'

Overnight, our friends across the pond announced the 2019 BAFTA nominations, the equivalent of the Academy Awards in the United Kingdom honoring the preceding year in film. It should come as no surprise that the British Academy of Film and Television Arts was more than ready to show plenty of love for The Favourite, a truly British film in every sense of the word. The film led the pack with 12 nominations, including Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Best Director, and nods for Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz for their incredible performances.

How did the rest of the 2019 BAFTA nominations shake out? Check out the full list below.

The 2019 BAFTA nominations also spread an even amount of love to other heavy awards season favorites like Roma, A Star Is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody and First Man, giving all of the films seven nominations each.

The surprising showing for First Man means the awards chances for the Neil Armstrong biopic from director Damien Chazelle are looking up after the film has been surprisingly left out in the wind for the most. However, it should be noted that most of the nominations for First Man were for technical awards other than the nods for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Claire Foy.

One thing that's refreshing is seeing a little less love for Green Book, a movie that the Golden Globes handed some major trophies to, giving more weight to the film's Oscars chances (not to mention yesterday's addition of a Director's Guild of America nomination for Peter Farrelly). It's not that Green Book is downright awful, but the story told there comes with an inherent level of ignorance not unlike that of the film's main character, Tony Lip. But I digress. The film came away with four nominations.

On the brighter side, BlacKkKlansman walked away with five nominations, including one for Best Film. But Black Panther nearly ended up being shut out of the BAFTAs entire with only a single nomination for Best Visual Effects. It couldn't even muster up a nomination for Costume Design, which is kind of shocking. Perhaps even more upsetting is a lack of abundance in nominations for If Beale Street Could Talk, which could only land Best Adapted Screenplay and Original Music nominations.

Anyway, check out the full list of 2019 BAFTA nominations below.
