BAFTA NOMINATIONS 2012

Well Bafta members really know how to shake things up! 


Shoe-in's like "Warhorse", "Hugo" and "My Week with Marilyn" were shafted for smaller films like DRIVE and TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY.


Other surprises were for no Spielberg in directing category. I, also wonder why awards voters aren't showing Tate Taylor any love, The Help scores well in all other categories and have to say it was very well directed film, it flowed smoothly and told the story well. with Film, Screenplay, Lead Actress, and 2 supporting actress nods I sure hope it gets some love, especially for my friend Octavia Spencer.
