Awards Watch: BAFTA Nominations

Maybe Atonement isn't out of the Oscar running after all: The Golden Globe Award winner, severely lacking in any major guild support on this side of the pond, racked up an impressive 14 nominations today from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, including Best Film and Best British Film.

Joining it in the former are the two Oscar front-runners, No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood, plus American Gangster (also pretty much MIA in key precursors stateside) and last year's Oscar winner for Foreign Language Film, The Lives of Others, which picked up four other nominations, including a posthumous one for the late Ulrich Mühe.

See the comments section below for a quick look at the BAFTA nominees; the awards will be handed out on February 10.
