Just a few days after the “La La Land” swept the Golden Globes, the British Academy officially announced the nominations for the BAFTAs, and once again the popular musical could walk away a major winner.

Sophie Turner and Dominic Cooper announced this year’s nominees, with “La La Land” picking up an astounding 11 nominations this year. The film hit all of the major categories, including best director, best film and both best actor awards. Films like “Arrival” and Tom Ford’s “Nocturnal Animals” were a close second-place with nine-nominations each, and Amazon’s “Manchester By the Sea” earned six overall. Disney rules the ‘Best Animated Feature’ category again, with four of the five films nominated coming from the studio.

Many of the same films that were popular at the Golden Globes will show up on the BAFTA list, including “Lion,” “Hacksaw Ridge,” “Moonlight” and “Florence Foster Jenkins”. The awards will be handed out on February 12, 2017. Stephen Fry will once again host the event, this time from the Royal Albert Hall.
