Nominations Fri 8 Jan 16 • Awards Sun 14 Feb 16

Notes from Rich: Once again, Bafta nominations are notable for ignoring local talent in lieu of buzzy international stars. Why else is there no love for worthy performers like Tom Hardy, Charlotte Rampling, Carey Mulligan and Tom Courtenay? There's also the nagging sense that the voters were trying to be "Serious!" by leaving Mad Max: Fury Road in the craft categories only, and only two top nods for The Martian. And where are Creed, Joy and, most glaringly, Spectre? At least the Rising Star category is more appropriate this year: these are all young actors still on their way up. As for the winners, they were all pretty predictably mainstream - less about rewarding the best of the year and more about going with the buzz. And come on, Bafta and BBC: time is long, long overdue to overhaul that dull, disastrously tape-delayed ceremony.
