Over the past couple days if missed the chance to post the newly announced nominees from a number of organizations. Well I doubt you’re flocking to me for the latest breaking news, so I guess a couple days late is OK. To make up for lost time, however, I’m going to post them all here at once.
There’s not a lot of analysis to be had. BAFTA is the British version of AMPAS (The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, for those that don’t know, is the group behind the Oscars), and while they might skew a little bit more “Queen and Country”, they tend to like to follow a similar path to their American cousins. The Guilds are always the best predictors of the Oscars, but even then there are usually one or two differences in every category. I made a couple other short notes within the appropriate nominee pages.
Click on the following group names to see their 2014 Nominations…
BAFTA – British Academy of Film and Television Arts
NAACP Image Awards
ACE – American Cinema Editors
Art Directors Guild
ASC – American Society of Cinematographers
Costume Designers Guild
SOC – Society of Camera Operators
Finally, to save time citing everything (it’s public knowledge at this point anyway), I’ll just mention that I got all of this information from my two favorite awards news blogs In Contention and Awards Daily, and from the websites of the individual groups listed.
