BAFTA Longlist: 'My Week With Marilyn' & 'Tinker Tailor' Lead Potential Nominees

The British Academy of Film and Television has released the longlist for its upcoming Orange British Academy Film Awards. My Week With Marilyn and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy lead with 16 mentions each. One point of note is the fact that Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows – Part 2 was not named in the overall Best Film category. It is, however, on the list of Outstanding British Film potentials. Ryan Gosling also picked up two spots on the longlist for Best Actor, one for Drive and one for The Ides Of March. The longlist is the result of round one of voting by BAFTA members. It places 15 contenders in each category which will then be reduced to five eventual nominees. The animated film and documentary categories longlist five films each which will be reduced to three nominees per category.

According to BAFTA, all members vote in the first two rounds for all categories except Documentary, Film Not in the English Language and Outstanding British Film, which are voted for by Chapters (groups of over 80 members with specialist skills or experience in a particular craft area). The asterisks in the longlist below denote the top five selection of the relevant Chapter. In the final round, winners are voted for by specialist Chapters in all categories except for Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Documentary and Film Not in the English Language and the four performance categories, which are voted for by all members.

The final nominees will be announced on Jan 17 with the BAFTA ceremony taking place on Feb 12. The longlist is below:

†: As there was a tie in the Chapter vote in Supporting Actress, six individuals are flagged in this category.

  1. THE IRON LADY, MY WEEK WITH MARILYN, JANE EYRE & especially SUBMARINE as Best British film, but WEEKEND nowhere to be found?!?!?

    1. I agree re Weekend – it’s a shame, it’s quite a small scale piece though – it’s a TV play really. The central performances were lovely. And it’s the best representation of the realities of two men in/not in a relationship I’ve ever seen on screen – it ducked so many cliches and really found a core truth usually sadly lacking ‘gay cinema’ – for want of a better label.

  2. Hope Cumberbatch makes the short list for Guillam in Tinker Tailor Soldier spy. He steals the film from Oldman.

  3. Other than Tinker leading the BAFTA first round long list noms, there are few surprises.

    Congrats to Deadline…The Reporter, The Wrap and Variety have yet to post this story.

  4. Think it’s a little bit ridiculous for Judi Dench and Zoe Wanamaker to be flagged on the list for Best Supporting Actress for what are essentially glorified cameos, especially when Shailene Woodley is left in the dark. But the BAFTAs are nothing if self-congratulatory, I guess.

  5. I love the idea of The Artist being longlisted for Best Sound. Makes me so proud to be a member.

  6. Good to see Senna getting a few noms, and the editing frontrunner pick is a good sign as to its potential for the awards.

  7. Why is Bejo in lead? Alright, whatever I don’t get it but I hope the lead actresses end up looking like this 1) Bejo (it’s inevitable no matter what her category placement is) 2) Williams 3) Davis 4) Theron 5) Streep or Swinton— doubt they would pass up a chance to nominate Streep but I don’t see them skipping over Swinton. Theron should be nominated considering she gives the best female performance of the year and it looks like the screenplay will be nominated too. Williams and Bejo are looks. Davis is pretty much a lock too.

  8. Weird list. The guard is disturbingly ignored,even by its own.I hope but doubt Gleesons magic will be praised.Its funny afterall.Drive screenplay? Ok.Not exactly where that films strength lie. Is McCarthy gonna get a nomination for her very creepy and unfunny performance as a woman compensating overweight with illusions of grandeur n we´re supposed to laugh? Where IS Michael Shannon?Not even amongst 15? No Take Shelter.Same nominees in basically every category…Go Oldman,otherwise,a sucky movieyear.Wait,no Nick Nolte but Rickman for 2 min of screentime and turning out to be not-so-evil? Aaah…forget it.
