'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' and 'My Week With Marilyn' Top BAFTA Longlists

Fri Jan 6, 2012 12:30pm EST

"Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" and "My Week With Marilyn" lead the pack in the British Academy of Film and Television Arts' longlists, which were released by BAFTA on Friday.

The longlists narrow the contenders to 15 in most of the categories for the Orange British Academy Film Awards, which will be handed out on February 12 in London.

Both "Tinker, Tailor" (left) and "Marilyn" received 16 longlist mentions, with "The Iron Lady" receiving 14, "The Artist" 13 and "Hugo" and "War Horse" 12.

"The Help," "Marilyn" and "Tinker, Tailor" led the way in the acting categories, with five mentions each. Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer were listed for "The Help"; Michelle Williams, Kenneth Branagh, Eddie Redmayne, Judi Dench and Zoe Wanamaker for "Marilyn"; and Gary Oldman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, John Hurt and Kathy Burke for "Tinker, Tailor."

Some of the oddities of the list: The Best Film longlist included "The Iron Lady," which received mixed reviews, but not "Shame" or "The Tree of Life." In fact, that Terrence Malick movie received only a single mention, for cinematography.

And despite a remarkable performance in "Coriolanus," Vanessa Redgrave was left off the Supporting Actress list, which included Alexandra Roach and Olivia Colman in "The Iron Lady," Judi Dench and Zoe Wanamaker in "My Week With Marilyn" and Melissa McCarthy in "Bridesmaids."

The Lead Actress category contains four performances that are being campaigned in the Supporting Actress category for the Oscars: Berenice Bejo for "The Artist," Carey Mulligan for "Shame" and Jodie Foster and Kate Winslet for "Carnage."

Mulligan was one of a number of actors who were mentioned for two different roles. In her case, she was listed in the lead category for "Shame" and in supporting for "Drive." Olivia Colman was listed for both "Tyrannosaur" and "The Iron Lady," Ryan Gosling for "Drive" and "The Ides of March," and George Clooney for "The Descendants" and "The Ides of March."

In a reverse of Oscar voting, all the chapters of the British Academy vote to select the shortlist and to determine the final nominations. Members of the individual chapters vote then to select the winners in their branch.

Asterisks in the lists below indicate the top choices of the chapter members in each specific field. Since the chapter voting doesn't kick in until the final round, those asterisks don't indicate the likeliest nominees, but they do point toward the possible winners.

The films that were the top chapter choices were "The Artist," with nine, and "Tinker, Tailor" and "Hugo," with eight.

Final nominations will be announced on Tuesday, January 17.

Here are the complete longlists; in the Documentary and Animated Film categories, the list of five will be cut to three nominees.
