The King’s Speech dominates this morning’s list of Bafta nominations, making the shortlist in 14 categories, including best film, outstanding British film, best director and best actor, for Colin Firth.
The Coen Brothers’ Western remake True Grit picks up eight nods, including a best actor nomination for last year’s Oscar winner, Jeff Bridges. The Social Network, the big winner at the Globes, has six nominations, including one for Andrew Garfield, currently filming the Spider-Man reboot.
And there’s a posthumous nomination for the late Pete Postlethwaite, for his supporting role in The Town.
