So, The British Academy Film & Television Awards (a.k.a. BAFTAs) have been announced across the pond, and it is quite interesting. They are pretty much their version of the Oscars, but with more tea and questionable dentistry.

This year's 3D epic, Gravity leads with 11 nominations, however there is not much breathing room for the space epic as, much unlike a lonely Sandra Bullock packed into a space suit and drifting around outer space, both 12 Years A Slave and American Hustle are hot on the heels with 10 noms each.

Can Sandra Bullock bag a BAFTA this year?

Read the nominees below and let us know what you think in the comment box below. Was Inside Llewyn Davis cheated? Or, do you think Saving Mr. Banks vastly overrated?
