Awards season is in full swing. The Golden Globes will be held in Hollywood on Sunday evening. The Critics Choice Awards are scheduled to honor the best and brightest in film and television on January 17. And the Academy will announce its nominations to the world on Thursday, January 14. We’re in the thick of things. Across the pond, the BAFTAs revealed its top picks for the best on film, and much like what’s happening over here, their nominations spread across a diverse field to include a number of wide-reaching titles.  

The Big Short, Bridge of Spies, Carol, The Revenant and Spotlight will compete for the title of Best Film at the BAFTAs this year, according to a release on the group’s official site. That’s a different category than Outstanding British Film, in which the nominees are 45 Years, the documentary Amy, the immigrant song Brooklyn, The Danish Girl, Alex Garland’s Ex Machina and The Lobster.
