The final nominations for the BAFTAs (the British Academy Film Awards) were announced this morning. Daniel Radcliffe, along with rising star Holliday Grainger, announced the nominees for the main categories, and you can watch a replay of that announcement below.
Outside of the main categories, Harry Potter got four nominations for the following:
- Production Design
- Makeup & Hair
- Special Visual Effects
Deathly Hallows Part 2 was initially long-listed in a further seven categories which it sadly missed out on: Outstanding British Film, Editing, Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Costume Design, Original Music and Supporting Actor – Alan Rickman.
However, there was much more success for many of the older Potter stars. Sirius actor Gary Oldman is up for Leading Actor for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Jim Broadbent (Slughorn) and Kenneth Branagh (Lockhart) are both nominated for Supporting actor for their roles in The Iron Lady and My Week with Marilyn, respectively.
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy also starred a few other HP alumni (John Hurt [Ollivander], Ciaran Hinds [Aberforth], Toby Jones [voice of Dobby]) and is nominated for a whole host of other awards including Best Film. Emma Watson had a supporting role in My Week With Marilyn which is up for Outstanding British Film and more. Finally, Voldemort actor Ralph Fiennes has received a nomination for ‘Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer’ for Corialanus, a film which he directed and had the leading role in.
