Nominations for the 69th BAFTA Film Awards have been revealed, with film crews now weighing up their chances of bringing home a glossy new trophy.
Steven Spielberg's "Bridge of Spies" and Todd Haynes' "Carol" were top picks with BAFTA, with the academy announcing Friday that both had received nine nominations, followed by "The Revenant" and "Mad Max: Fury Road", which received eight and seven, respectively.
2015's Oscars, Golden Globe and BAFTA winner for Best Actor, Eddie Redmayne, has been nominated at the BAFTAs again, for his role in "The Danish Girl." Redmayne will be up against a fierce competition, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Bryan Cranston.
Five actresses are up for the "Leading Actress" award, including Brie Larson for "Room", which has been tipped by many as an Oscar contender. To win her first BAFTA, Larson will be competing alongside Cate Blanchett, Maggie Smith, Saoirse Ronan and Alicia Vikander.
Not everyone however was as lucky. Both the James Bond blockbuster "Spectre", and "Joy" featuring Jennifer Lawrence, didn't receive any nominations.
While there are several "top" film categories — "Adapted Screenplay" and "Outstanding British Film" — at 2016's BAFTAs, only five movies were lucky enough to be nominated for "Best Film." The five nominated are "The Big Short", "Carol", "Bridge of Spies", Spotlight" and "The Revenant".
In response to the BAFTA nominations, Ben Roberts, the BFI Film Fund's director, said in a statement that it had been a "fantastic year for British film" and congratulated the nominees whose commitment to cinema had been "rightly recognized" at Friday's announcement.
While the British Academy won't reveal its winners until its ceremony on February 14, cinemagoers will get a taste of which films could receive the most accolades in the awards season overall, with the highly-anticipated Golden Globes kicking off this Sunday.
"The Big Short", "The Revenant" and "The Danish Girl" are just a handful of films nominated for this year's Golden Globes, however, the names give a lot of insight into who may — or may not — be nominated other coveted awards.
What award ceremonies like BAFTA Film and Golden Globes, often do is help predict top runners in the awards season, or as awards tracker GoldDerby.com puts it, an 'audition for the Oscars.'
Taking in the nominations from BAFTA and Golden Globes and other popular film award events including "Critics' Choice" and "Writers Guild of America"; one thing is clear, there are some definite clear favorites.
The most frequently nominated films so far include "Carol", "The Big Short", "Spotlight" and "The Revenant"; all suggesting that they could have what it takes to be nominated at next week's Oscars announcements, on Thursday, January 14.
