Nominations Fri 8 Jan 16 • Awards Sun 14 Feb 16

Notes from Rich: Once again, Bafta nominations are most notable for the way voters ignore local talent for 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? And look for the winners to tilt even more mainstream. At least the Rising Star category is more appropriate this year: these are all young actors still on their way up.
