The Queen Rules BAFTA Nominations

by | January 12, 2007 | Comments

Stephen Frears’ drama "The Queen" came out on top with 10 nominations for this year’s Orange British Academy Film Awards, including Best Actress for Helen Mirren and nods for both Best Film and Outstanding British film. The other top-nominated films are the latest James Bond adventure, "Casino Royale", with nine nominations, and the Spanish thriller "Pan’s Labyrinth", with eight.

The awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, 11 February, at the Royal Opera House in London.

"The Queen" is up against Kevin Macdonald’s Idi Amin drama "The Last King of Scotland" for both Best Film and Outstanding British Film. Also nominated for Best Film are Martin Scorsese’s mob thriller "The Departed", the multi-strand international drama "Babel" and the ensemble comedy "Little Miss Sunshine". While the other British Film nominees are Casino Royale, "Notes on a Scandal" and the acclaimed 9/11 thriller "United 93".

Helen Mirren’s competition for Best Actress includes two fellow Brits: Judi Dench for "Notes on a Scandal" and Kate Winslet for "Little Children". They’ll be contending against Meryl Streep in "The Devil Wears Prada" and Penelope Cruz in Pedro Almodovar’s "Volver".

Meanwhile, in the Best Actor category, Daniel Craig is the first James Bond to be nominated for the award. His competitors are British actors Peter O’Toole for "Venus" and Richard Griffiths for "The History Boys", as well as Forest Whitaker for "The Last King of Scotland" and Leonardo DiCaprio for The Departed.

And Bond Girl Eva Green has also been nominated — in the Orange Rising Star category alongside Emily Blunt (also nominated for Best Supporting Actress in "The Devil Wears Prada"), Naomie Harris, Cillian Murphy and Ben Whishaw. The winner will be decided by a public vote.
