My Week With Marilyn, Tinker Tailor lead BAFTA longlist

After the first round of voting, BAFTA has unveiled its longlist for the 2012 Film Awards.

Leading the pack are My Week With Marilyn and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy with 16 mentions each, followed by The Iron Lady with 14, and The Artist, Midnight In Paris, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and War Horse with 13 each.

Following are The Help and Hugo with 12 each; Drive, The Ides of March and Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows - Part 2 with 11 each. We Need To Talk About Kevin earned 10.

Palme d’Or winner The Tree of Life by Terence Malick only got one mention on the longlist, in the cinematography category. And David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method was only nominated for costume design.

Notable snubs include Madonna’s W.E., Terrence Davies’ The Deep Blue Sea, Stephen Daldry’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Nick Murphy’s The Awakening, James Watkins’ The Woman In Black and Andrea Arnold’s Wuthering Heights for all categories; Vanessa Redgrave not making the longlist for supporting actress for her role in Coriolanus; Cannes best actress winner Kirsten Dunst not being longlisted for Melancholia nor Michelle Yeoh for The Lady; and Las Acacias and Miss Bala not making the cut for foreign-language film.

More low-budget but critically acclaimed films including Weekend and Kill List aren’t on the longlist.

This marks the first year BAFTA has a documentary category, and the five films on that longlist are: George Harrison: Living in the Material World, Life in a Day, Pina, Project Nim, and Senna. Notable omissions from that list include Cave of Forgotten Dreams, TT3D: Closer To The Edge and The Interrupters.

Individuals with multiple mentions on the longlist include George Clooney for both The Descendants and The Ides of March, Ryan Gosling for Drive and The Ides of March, Carey Mulligan for Shame and Drive, and Olivia Colman for Tyrannosaur and The Iron Lady.

BAFTA voters will now cast their second votes by Jan 12. BAFTA nominations are out Jan 17 and the awards ceremony will be held Feb 12.
