The Artist leads nominations for 2012 BAFTAs

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Hugo and My Week With Marilyn also pick up numerous nominations

The 2012 BAFTA nominations have been announced, with Michel Hazanavicius' silent film The Artist leading the way with 12 nominations. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Hugo and My Week with Marilyn have also scored nominations in several categories, with Tomas Alfredson's Cold War thriller racking up 11 nominations, Scorsese's debut kids' feature getting nine and the Simon Curtis-directed movie star biopic earning six. Scorsese is also to be honoured with an Academy Fellowship, described by the Academy as 'the highest accolade bestowed upon an individual in recognition of an outstanding and exceptional contribution to film.'

The Artist's nominations come hot on the heels of an extremely successful night at the Golden Globes, where the film picked up awards for Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical, Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy Or Musical (for leading man Jean Dujardin) and Best Original Score - Motion Picture. The other leading BAFTA nominees also enjoyed some success, which many within the film industry see as an indication of what will happen at the Oscars, due to take place on Sun 26 Feb. Michelle Williams was awarded Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy Or Musical for My Week With Marilyn, while Scorsese picked up Best Director - Motion Picture for Hugo.

Representing Scotland at the BAFTAs are Lynne Ramsay and Tilda Swinton, both nominated (for Best Director and Leading Actress respectively) for We Need to Talk About Kevin. Svottish writer/director John Maclean has also received a nomination for his short film Pitch Black Heist.

The awards ceremony will take place at London's Royal Opera House on Sun 12 Feb. See below for a full list of nominees.
