The King, The Swan And The BAFTAS

BAFTA, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, has announced its "longlists", a rather quaint annual exercise that reduces the number of potential candidates for BAFTA Awards to 15. At the moment, in one of the key races of the awards season, the historical epic THE KING'S SPEECH and the ballet-goes-mad BLACK SWAN are tied for most mentions (to be translated in a few weeks time to most nominations). Not far behind are the films INCEPTION and THE SOCIAL NETWORK.

The Leading Actor candidates with the strongest actors branch support are Colin Firth ("The King's Speech"), James Franco ("127 Hours"), Javier Bardem ("Biutiful"), Jeff Bridges ("True Grit") and Jesse Eisenberg ("The Social Network"). Among Leading Actress contenders, special mention went to Carey Mulligan ("Never Let Me Go"), Michelle Williams ("Blue Valentine"), Natalie Portman ("Black Swan") and both Annette Bening and Julianne Moore for "The Kids Are All Right." At 15 selections per category (see full lists below), essentially every serious contender is included, with a few surprises. BAFTA voters placed "True Grit" ingenue Hailee Steinfeld in the Leading Actress category but put Lesley Manville from "Another Year" on the Supporting Actress list.

In the Director race, the strongest nods went to Danny Boyle for "127 Hours," Darren Aronofsky for "Black Swan," Christopher Nolan for "Inception," Tom Hooper for "The King's Speech" and David Fincher for "The Social Network." BAFTA also announced the actual nominees for its Orange British Academy Film Awards in one category, Film Not in the English Language. Those nominees are "Biutiful," "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," "I Am Love," "Of Gods and Men" and Argentine Oscar winner "The Secret in Their Eyes."

The Orange British Academy Film Awards will take place on Sunday, February 13 at the Royal Opera House in London's Covent Garden.
