Hey all, the award-giving group from across the pond have weighed in with their nominees for the 2006 BAFTA Awards, a group of awards I hope to have archived here on RopeofSilicon by the end of this year.
Among the list you will see all the familiar faces, movies we come to expect to be hearing even more of once the Oscar noms arrive at the end of this month. The Constant Gardener leads the way with 10 nominations, Brokeback Mountain and Crash both weigh in with 9, Good Night, and Good Luck has 6, Pride and Prejudice has 6, Capote has 5, and one of the big Golden Globe winners, Walk the Line, has 4.
