The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has released the longlist of nominations for this year’s BAFTA awards and Harry Potter is vying for a few awards. It was longlisted for every category it was eligible for except for Best Film and Director (it was not nominated for Film Not in the English Language, Documentary or Animated Film and Original Screenplay for obvious reasons.)

  • Outstanding British Film
  • Editing
  • Adapted Screenplay
  • Production Design
  • Cinematography
  • Make Up & Hair
  • Costume Design
  • Sound
  • Special Visual Effects
  • Original Music
  • Supporting Actor: Alan Rickman for Deathly Hallows

The cast members of the series are also up for some awards:

  • Leading Actor: Brendan Gleeson for The Guard, Gary Oldman for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,  Ralph Fiennes for Coriolanus
  • Supporting Actor: Jim Broadbent for The Iron Lady, John Hurt for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Kenneth Branagh for My Week with Marilyn
  • Supporting Actress: Zoe Wanamaker for My Week with Marilyn

With 285 films entered this year, the first round of voting reduced the list of eligible films to 15 in each category. Round Two voting, which opens today, will reduce these 15 contenders down to the five nominations in each category. Appearing on the Longlist does not constitute a nomination. Nominations in all categories will be announced on Tuesday 17 January. The winners will be announced at the Orange British Academy Film Awards on Sunday 12 February.
