Gary Oldman receives Leading Actor BAFTA nomination

OHMYGOSSIP — Gary Oldman has been nominated for the Leading Actor gong at this year’s BAFTA Film Awards.
The London-born star has been named alongside Daniel Day Lewis (‘Phantom Thread’), Daniel Kaluuya (‘Get Out’), Jamie Bell (‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’) and Timothee Chalamet (‘Call Me By Your Name’) on the list of nominees for the coveted award, which is to be decided at the Royal Albert Hall on February 18.
Oldman, 59, has received the nomination for his stellar performance in the Joe Wright-directed history movie ‘Darkest Hour’, in which he stars as Britain’s war-time Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill.
Oldman’s latest nomination for the Leading Actor award – which follows earlier nods for his performance in ‘Prick Up Your Ears’ in 1988 and 2012’s ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’ – is sure to increase speculation over a possible first-ever Academy Award for the acclaimed actor.
The BAFTA Film Awards are often seen as a good indicator as to potential Academy Award winners, with this year’s ceremony being staged on March 4.
Elsewhere, the Leading Actress list features Hollywood star Annette Bening for ‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’, Frances McDormand for ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’, Margot Robbie for ‘I, Tonya’, Saoirse Ronan for ‘Lady Bird’ and Sally Hawkins for ‘The Shape of Water’.
In total, ‘The Shape of Water’ has received nods in 12 categories for this year’s ceremony, including Director, Leading Actress and Original Screenplay.
Guillermo del Toro won a Golden Globe on Sunday (07.01.18) for Best Director of a Motion Picture for his unusual creature feature.
But the 53-year-old Mexican will face stiff competition from ‘Blade Runner 2049’ helmer Denis Villeneuve, ‘Call Me By Your Name’ director Luca Guadagnino, ‘Dunkirk’ filmmaker Christopher Nolan and ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ mastermind Martin McDonagh.
It has been confirmed, too, that British actress Joanna Lumley is to replace Stephen Fry as the host of this year’s BAFTA Film Awards.
Lumley, 71, will become the first female host since Mariella Frostrup co-presented with Fry back in 2001.
She said: “Honestly, how exciting is this? It’s just so unbelievably thrilling. Who thought I’d turn into Stephen Fry?
“I want to thank Bafta so much for asking me to do this. I said yes indecently quickly.”
