The 2014 BAFTA Awards announced their official nominations for this year and there were some solid choices across the board. Not everyone that was nominated will please all the critics, but overall this years list of nominations looks to be as good as it could be given the competition.
In the category of Best Actress, the chips have fallen where we predicted they would. Like Best Actor, it’s impossible to predict the field but the BAFTA nominations for the category here look pretty good in terms of what we’d like to see form the Academy next week. Cate Blanchett and Amy Adams can be considered Oscar locks for Blue Jasmine and American Hustle while it’s nice to see Judi Dench and Emma Thompson gain some late momentum with their BAFTA nods.
Here’s a look at the BAFTA nominations for Best Actress, which looks pretty close to what we can expect to see announced next week for the official Academy Award nominations.
