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 Picture, otherwise known as Best Film at the BATFAs, the selected films are pretty much what we expected. But unlike the Oscars, the BAFTAs split up their nominations into British films and all other films. British films are films made with British financing, as it doesn’t meant he director is British nor the story itself.
For example, Ron Howard is an American filmmaker, but used British producing to make Rush and the same goes for Hispanic filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron.
