EE BAFTA Film Winners 2017 List and Predictions

SHARE

On Tuesday 10 January 2016, BAFTA’s Chair Jane Lush, was joined by Sophie Turner and Dominic Cooper to announce the nominations for the EE British Academy Film Awards in 2017.

Lionsgate UK received a whopping 18 nominations for their slate of films which includes 7 Golden Globes winner La La Land, which walked away with 11 Bafta nominations and 5 nominations for Hacksaw Ridge.

Also up for 5 nominations is Lion, which is in UK cinemas January 20th, starring Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman.

Dev Patel said on the nominations “Thank you so much to the BAFTAs for your support. Ever since I was a kid growing up outside of London, I’ve watched the BAFTA awards with my family. It was a tradition of ours and served as an inspiration to me as I decided to embark on my journey as an actor. Since “Lion” is a film about identity and finding “home,” this BAFTA nomination today truly means so much to me. I’m thrilled for Nicole Kidman, Luke Davies, Greig and the composers for their respective nominations.  I am beyond grateful to Garth Davis, our fearless and soulful director who brought this film to life in such an extraordinary and special way. Thanks to the Weinstein team and to the producers at See Saw for their commitment and passion in getting the film into theaters. I can’t wait to celebrate this achievement with my peers and fellow BAFTA nominees at the ceremony that holds such a special place in my heart. My family is literally freaking out right now!”
