Bafta: rain of nominations for Oppenheimer and Anatomy of a Fall at the English Césars

The popularity of Anatomy of a Fall is sky high across the Atlantic and across the Channel too. Justine Triet's Palme d'Or garnered nominations in all the English César categories where the trial film was in the running. The thriller can claim seven Baftas on Sunday February 18 in London. Anatomy of a Fall was selected in the category of best foreign film, best distribution, best screenplay, best actress (Sandra Hüller), best editing. Justine Triet is the only woman nominated in the best director category, while Greta Gerwig (Barbie) and Celine Song (Past Lives) were expected.

Another notable absentee: Martin Scorsese for Killers Of The Flower Moon. Justine Triet will face Christopher Nolan (Oppenheimer), Jonathan Glazer (The Zone of Interest), Andrew Haigh (Without Knowing Us), Alexander Payne (Winter Break), Bradley Cooper (Maestro). Above all, the Palme d'Or is in the running for the trophy for best film against Oppenheimer, Poor Creatures, Killers Of The Flower Moon, Winter Break.

The Bafta nominations confirm that Oppenheimer is in pole position this awards season, with 13 nominations. Follows, with 11, the feminine and baroque rereading of the Frankenstein myth, Poor Creatures where Emma Stone shines. The great American tragedy Killers Of The Flower Moon collects nine quotes. Just like The Zone of Interest, a chilling story about the daily life of the commander of the Nazi extermination camp of Auschwitz and winner of the Cannes Grand Prix.

On the other hand, it is a new slowdown for Barbie, lagging behind since the Golden Globes and the Critics Choice Awards where the film only won a handful of awards. Shortlisted in 13 categories, Greta Gerwig's comedy only managed five nominations and did not appear in the best direction or best film sections. Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie still slip into the race for the acting awards.

In the best actress section, the interpreter of the Mattel doll will face Emma Stone, Fantasia Barrino (in the musical comedy based on The Color Purple), Carey Mulligan (Maestro), the young Vivian Oparah for the delicious and urban romcom Rye Lane. Without forgetting the German actress Sandra Hüller in the running for Anatomy of a Fall and for The Zone of Interest which earned her a second nomination in the supporting role section. Surprisingly, the Baftas did not include the revelation of Killers Of The Flower Moon Lily Gladstone, who triumphed at the Golden Globes.

Among the men, Nolan's muse, Irish actor Cilian Murphy, faces Bradley Cooper (Maestro), Colman Domingo (Rustin), Paul Giamatti (Winter Break), Teo Yoo (the only survivor of the poetic Past Lives) and Barry Keoghan (Saltburn). ).

As for British cinema which enjoys dedicated categories, the disturbing Saltburn by director Emerald Fennell garners five nominations, including three for its actors Barry Keoghan, Jacob Elordi and Rosamund Pike. The British revelation How to have sex by young director Molly Manning Walker, which questions the thrill of first encounters and the limits of consent, received three nominations, after winning the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes. Very beautiful melodrama with a supernatural background, Without Knowing Us, with Andrew Scott and Paul Mescal, has six quotes.

The Bafta ceremony, like that of the Golden Globes, gives a foretaste of possible trends at the Oscars, which will be awarded in March in Los Angeles. Among the 10,000 of the American Cinema Academy, several hundred also belong to the Bafta.
