BAFTA nominations 2016 announced: Alicia Vikander in rare double

Ah, awards season. That wonderful time of year when you get to read long lists of famous names and have spirited arguments with friends and family about who you think deserves their nomination, who was robbed of one, and who should win.

Today, we're talking BAFTAs, as the nominations for 2016's awards have been revealed. We imagine that Alicia Vikander is a happy lady this morning, since she has the rare honour of being nominated in two acting categories – Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress – for her work on The Danish Girl and Ex Machina respectively. The Danish Girl (which our critic called 'a touching tale of quiet courage and empowerment') also brought in a Best Actor Nomination for Eddie Redmayne, who won the same gong last year for The Theory of Everything (not to mention an Oscar).

Carol has also scooped several nominations, including Best Film, Best Director for Todd Haynes, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actress for Cate Blanchett, Best Supporting Actress for Rooney Mara, and, well, loads more. It got nine nominations in total, guys. Nine. We gave it five stars back in May after it premiered at Cannes, and said it was 'a breathtaking study of lesbian romance and towering female strength in the face of gruelling adversity.'

Also racking up a whopping nine nominations is Tom Hanks film Bridge of Spies, with a Best Film nod, Best Director for Steven Spielberg, Best Original Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor for Mark Rylance, and more. Our critic said it was 'taut and engaging', and clearly, those BAFTA folk agree.

Other notable and numerous nominations include The Revenant, which is nominated in eight categories, Mad Max: Fury Road, which has seven, and Brooklyn and The Martian, which are each nominated six times.

Time to start picking your winners before the ceremony on Sun 14 Feb.
