The British Academy of Film and Television Arts film awards will be handed out today from London's Royal Opera House. Here's the list of nominees. Kate Winslet is pitted against herself in the Best Actress category, for Revolutionary Road and The Reader. I'm glad to see Robert Downey, Jr. and Brendan Gleeson nominated again for Best Supporting Actor. I'm pulling for Persepolis for either Animated Film or Film not in the English Language. Although I haven't seen Waltz with Bashir yet; that might change my mind.
The telecast starts at 8 PM on BBC America.
