I'm honestly disappointed with the BAFTA nominees this year.
Leading Actress should go to Rooney Mara for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but she isn't even nominated. It will probably go to either Viola Davis or Meryl Streep, I think. Supporting Actress should be Melissa McCarthy but it will probably be Octavia Spencer. Leading Actor will go to George Clooney, I have no doubt. Best Director should go to Martin Scorsese but will probably go to Michel Hazanavicius. I have no doubt Best Film will go to The Artist.

Le sigh.
