'The Shape of Water' by Guillermo del Toro Gets 12 Bafta Nominations

Fantasy film "The Shape of Water" tops the list, but there are a few surprises along the way, as the BAFTA nominations are announced.

"We're so delighted to have been recognised by BAFTA for our debut film", said William Oldroyd (Director), Alice Birch (Writer) and Fodhla Cronin O'Reilly (Producer).

Best-picture nominees are The Shape of Water, Three Billboards, 'The Darkest Hour, 'Dunkirk and Call Me By Your Name.

Both movies will compete for best film. Natalie Portman's words from the Golden Globes will be resounding in the heads of the awards show's PR team on Tuesday morning.

The phone is backed by 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 128GB via microSD. The new Nokia 6 hasn't ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack yet, but offered an alternative - the Bluetooth 5.0 radio.


Unlike the Globes, a woman will host this year's event.

"We too are determined to ensure that the fearless revelations - and make no mistake, they were very courageous - become a watershed moment to become a catalyst for real lasting change across the work place in film, games and television".

She said: 'It's just so unbelievably thrilling.

"The Shape of Water" is a fantastical feature about a 1960s research facility in which a janitor forms a relationship with an amphibious creature being held captive.

Notably, in a year that has been dominated by issues of gender inequality and sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry, the best director category, as at the Globes, consisted entirely of men, with Nolan, Del Toro, McDonagh, Denis Villeneuve ("Blade Runner 2049"), and Luca Guadagnino ("Call Me By Your Name") scoring nominations. Guillermo del Toro is nominated for both director and original screenplay, Sally Hawkins for leading actress and Octavia Spencer for supporting actress. Also, the Handmaiden was nominated for Film Not in the English Language.

"Darkest Hour" is set in the early days of World War II, when British Prime Minister Winston Churchill had to make a decision on whether to negotiate with Hitler. "But we consider Joe to have been behind all of the film's nominations".

The Disaster Artist failed to win a single nomination, despite James Franco (who also directed) taking home the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy. Who thought I'd turn into Stephen Fry?

Winners will be announced on February 18, two weeks before the Oscars.
