BAFTA Longlist: ‘Black Swan,’ ‘The King’s Speech’ Lead Field

Colin Firth in 'The King's Speech'

This year’s British Academy Film Award longlist was announced earlier today. The British equivalent of the Oscars, the BAFTAs are set to be handed out on February 13. After one round of voting, The King’s Speech and Black Swan look set for a head-to-head scuffle, with 15 mentions apiece on the longlist. I’m thinking the British favorite King’s Speech will edge out in front when the shortlist is announced on January 18.

Next up: nominees for BAFTA’s Orange Rising Star Award, given to a promising young performer, will be announced on Monday, January 10. Previous winners include Kristen Stewart, Shia LaBeouf, Eva Green, James McAvoy, and Doctor Who star Noel Clarke. Unlike the other BAFTAs, this award is selected by public vote.

Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
