  • London Jan 9 The Shape of Water leads this year's Bafta film award nominations with 12 nods in total

Indeed, "The Post" - which earned six Golden Globe nominations but left empty-handed - failed to score a single BAFTA nod, a surprising turn given the pedigree of Spielberg and stars Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks as well as the film's timely story of a fierce struggle between presidential power and press freedom.

All five best director nominees were men, and all the nominations for best film and best British film were directed by men.

"It's a really broad mix of established and emerging talent", said BAFTA CEO Amanda Berry, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter after the nominations announcement. The Shape of Water received 12 nominations on Tuesday, the most of any film, including the coveted best film award.

"The Shape of Water" is a fantastical feature about a 1960s research facility in which a janitor forms a relationship with an amphibious creature being held captive. Guillermo del Toro is nominated for both director and original screenplay, Sally Hawkins for leading actress and Octavia Spencer for supporting actress.

"Blade Runner 2049" received eight nominations, including best director for Denis Villeneuve, who is competing against Luca Guadagnino ("Call Me by Your Name), Christopher Nolan ("Dunkirk"), Mr. del Toro ("The Shape of Water") and Martin McDonagh ("Three Billboards")". Also, the Handmaiden was nominated for Film Not in the English Language. "But we consider Joe to have been behind all of the film's nominations". Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson both received nominations for supporting actor. Joanna Lumley takes over from veteran presenter Stephen Fry.
