BAFTA 2015: Nominations

 

Ladies and gents, it’s that time of the year again! The BAFTA awards are here to honour (yes, that’s British spelling) the best film and television accomplishments of the past year.

Personally I’m glad to see The Grand Budapest Hotel with so many nominations; I believe it was one of the best films of 2014. Below I’ve highlighted my predictions for the winner in each category in RED.

Let me know what you think of the nominations and my predictions in the comments below.
