This morning we were graced with the all exciting BAFTA nominations announced by our very own Stephen Fry and a set of “Grand Canyon dimples” provided by Sam Claflin. This year’s noms in the main categories are so tight and solid, they’re currently racking my brain like an unsolved Rubik’s Cube. Leading the race, surprisingly is Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel with 11 nominations (currently standing at number 16 in my Top 20 best films of 2014 list) with the almighty Birdman and The Theory of Everything right behind with 10 nods, leaving The Imitation Game floating the boat at 9 nominations.
