'The Shape of Water,' 'Three Billboards' and 'Darkest Hour' lead BAFTA nominations

And this year's Bafta winners are . . . more men than women

Fantasy Film “The Shape of Water” Leads Bafta Nominations

"We're absolutely thrilled Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards has been recognized by BAFTA and its members with nine nominations - and following such a successful weekend at the Golden Globes", said Film4 director Daniel Battsek, adding that Film4 had backed all of McDonagh's films to date.

"The Shape of Water", "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", and "Darkest Hour", lead the race for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts' movie awards, regarded as a bellwether for the Oscars. Timothée Chalamet is nominated for the Best Actor category (as well as the public voted category EE Rising Star), Luca Guadagnino is nominated for Best Director, and the film itself is nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Film.

Perhaps less of a surprise, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", received a grand total of nine nominations.

Christopher Nolan's World War II thriller, "Dunkirk", and the romantic drama "Call Me By Your Name" rounded out the best film category.

"We're so delighted to have been recognised by BAFTA for our debut film", said William Oldroyd (Director), Alice Birch (Writer) and Fodhla Cronin O'Reilly (Producer).
