OLIVIA COL­MAN IS THE FAVOURITE FOR A BAFTA WIN

Hello! Middle East - - THE INSIDE STORY -

Hot on the heels of the Golden Globes, at which Olivia Col­man picked up the best ac­tress award for her por­trayal of Queen Anne in The Favourite (below), the nom­i­na­tions for BAFTA 2019 have been re­vealed ahead of the glit­ter­ing cer­e­mony on Fe­bru­ary 10 at Lon­don’s Royal Al­bert Hall.

And aside from the 44-year-old star be­ing nom­i­nated for best ac­tress, the pe­riod com­edy drama di­rected by Yor­gos Lan­thi­mos, is up for an in­cred­i­ble 12 awards in top cat­e­gories.

In fact, there might be in-movie com­pe­ti­tion as there are sup­port­ing ac­tress nods for both co-stars Emma Stone, 30, and 48-year-old mother-of-one Rachel Weisz (right).

The Favourite will face some stiff com­pe­ti­tion for the highly-cov­eted best film ac­co­lade from A Star is Born, Roma, Green Book and BlacKkKlans­man -- sur­pris­ingly, af­ter its suc­cess at the Globes, Bo­hemian Rhap­sody didn’t make the short list.

But whilst the biopic may have missed out on a nom­i­na­tion in the high pro­file cat­e­gory, the movie’s lead­ing man, Rami Malek, 37, has been nom­i­nated for a BAFTA Lead­ing Ac­tor where he will again com­pete against Bradley Cooper as well as Viggo Mortensen and British ac­tors Chris­tian Bale and Steve Coogan.
