Bradley Cooper achieves a very impressive first with his BAFTA nominations
Despite the hype surrounding A Star Is Born...
Bradley Cooper's 2018 remake of the classic Hollywood film only picked up one award at this week's Golden Globe Awards — for best original song. It failed to pick up any gongs in the overall, acting or directing categories.
But Cooper will be feeling a bit better today, after seeing the BAFTA nominations. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts nominated Cooper in the best film, actor, best director, adapted screenplay and original music categories — meaning he has a chance to win separate awards for acting, directing, writing and composing, as well as Best Film. It's the first time anyone has been nominated in all five categories since the inception of the BAFTAs 72 years ago.
It was also a very good day for Alfonso Cuarón, who picked up six individual nominations for Netflix's Roma, for best film, foreign-language film, director, cinematography, editing and original screenplay.
Similarly, The Favourite picked up 12 nominations, including another Best Actress nomination for Olivia Coleman, as well as Best Supporting nominations for Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz.
The BAFTAs will take place on 10 February.
