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 Supporting Actor, things look to be falling into place like we imagined they would, although there are a few names missing that suggest their Oscar luck might have run out.
Jonah Hill and Jared Leto are notably absent from the nomination list and both were hoping to and are still hoping to gain Oscar momentum heading into next week’s nominations. But as for the names here, the big surprise is Matt Damon, who is inelibgle to be nominated for an Oscar for Behind the Candelabra but secured a BAFTA nomination regardless.
So while the names here are what we can expect at the Oscars, it’s a race between Jared Leto and Jonah Hill as to who will be in Damon’s slot when the Oscars are announced next week.
