The British Academy Film Award nominations have been announced just a few days after Bohemian Rhapsody’s surprise Golden Globes win.

While the Freddie Mercury biopic has received seven nominations, it’s failed to score recognition in the Best Film category at the BAFTAs, which re-establishes A Star is Born as a firm Oscar frontrunner alongside Roma. They were also nominated seven times.

It’s The Favourite that leads the pack with 12 nominations. Following behind is First Man with seven, Vice with six and BlacKkKlansman with five.
