BAFTA 2003 - THE NOMINATIONS

IT’S HOURS AND OURS
Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf now? Well, the Americans, who face coming second to the British film in the BAFTA Award tally, reports Andrew L. Urban, as The Hours gains two top nominations.


The Hours has won a nomination in both the major BAFTA categories, Best Film and Outstanding British Film. And not only has The Hours gained nominations for screenplay and directing, it has also picked up acting nominations for both Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep. 

The BAFTA awards, which have two slots for top film (best overall, best British) have thrown Chicago into the top slot, which won the Best Musical/Comedy award at the Golden Globes. The Best film BAFTA nominees are otherwise the same as the Golden Globe nominees, where Chicago is replaced by About Schmidt, which the Hollywood Foreign Press realllllly loved.

In a neat display of coherence, the BAFTA Best Director nominations line up nicely with the Best Film nominations – and it’s great to see two foreign language films (Y tu mama tembien, Hable con Ella) nominated for the Best Original Screenplay award.

And most interestingly, the Best Actress category (by a quirk of release timing) includes Halle Berry for her work in Monster’s Ball, for which she won last year’s Oscar. What will that do to the odds? And her competition is awesome.

The Orange British Academy Film Awards in 2003, hosted by Stephen Fry, will take place on Sunday, February 23, at the Odeon, Leicester Square and will be followed by dinner and a party at Grosvenor House in London's West End. The programme will be produced by Initial and broadcast on BBC One.
