As is often the way the movies that have done well in the Best Movie and Best Director categories have also done well for their stars in the categories such as Best Actor and Best Actress.

The most successful movie this year as far as total nominations goes is 3D space sci-fi drama Gravity which achieved an impressive 11 nominations including Best Movie, Best Director (Alfonso Cuaron). Best Actress (Sandra Bullock) and probably least surprising a Visual Effects nod. One person who may feel a little left out though is the silver fox himself, George Clooney, who failed to get a nomination in the Best Actor category for his role in the film.

Both 12 Years A Slave and American Hustle got a total of 10 nominations across all the different BAFTA categories with American Hustle being the only one of the 3 movies to get nominations in all 4 main acting award categories of Best Actor (Christian Bale), Best Actress (Amy Adams), Best Supporting Actor (Bradley Cooper) and Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Lawrence). With the movie also getting nods in the Best Movie and Best Director (David O Russell) categories it could easily be argued that in fact American Hustle is the powerhouse movie this year as far as the BAFTAs are concerned with nominations in all of the major categories.
