Bafta Film Awards 2019: Olivia Colman's The Favourite leads nominations.


Olivia Colman's film The Favourite leads the race for this year's Bafta Awards, with 12 nominations.

The announcement comes days after Colman won a Golden Globe for playing Queen Anne in the period comedy-drama.

It's some way ahead of its nearest Bafta rivals Bohemian Rhapsody, A Star Is Born, First Man and Roma, which have seven nominations each.

All three main actresses in Favourite, The (2018), Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, and Emma Stone were recognized with nominations, which were unveiled Wednesday. Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga landed best actor and actress nominations for A Star Is Born (2018), and Cooper was one of the five nominees for best director.
