Baftas 2017: 'La La Land' leads the way with 11 nominations.


La La Land (2016) leads the nominations for the Ee British Academy Film Awards, which were announced in London today (January 10).

The musical received 11 nominations, including for best film, director (Damien Chazelle), original screenplay, leading actress (Emma Stone) and leading actor (Ryan Gosling).

But its competition this time round is less predictable, with two until-now underloved contenders, sci-fi Arrival (2016) and crime thriller Nocturnal Animals (2016), also performing healthily. Those films took nine nominations apiece, while Kenneth Lonergan’s grief drama Manchester by the Sea, which took best actor for Casey Affleck on Sunday, trails with six.
