The British Academy announced nominations today for their annual awards, which will be held on February 16 in London. “Nebraska,” directed by Alexander Payne, picked up a Best Cinematography nomination for the Greek-American’s frequent collaborator, Phedon Papamichael. The drama, hailed for its use of black & white format, was shot on-location in Payne’s home state of Nebraska. The plot centers on an estranged father who calls on his son to take him on a road trip in order to claim a million dollar sweepstakes prize.
Bruce Dern also received a best Leading Actor nomination for his role in the film, and screenwriter Bob Nelson got a nod for best Original Screenplay.
“Gravity” received the most nominations, leading the pack with 11 total. “12 Years A Slave” and “American Hustle” had 10 nominations each, and “Captain Phillips,” which stars Tom Hanks, scored 9 nominations.
