BAFTA by the numbers

Including it's nomination for Best British Film, THE KING'S SPEECH leads the way with 14 nods, followed closely behind by BLACK SWAN with 12, the only other film to crack the 10-nod barrier. Great push for a film that didn't really need a push, especially after it received the most nods at the Critics Choice as well, although it only took home the win for Best Actress.

Without a strong acting contender, INCEPTION did well to rack up 9 nominations, 6 of which were in the technical categories. TRUE GRIT pulled in a total of 8, as did 127 HOURS, which earns the silver-coated honor of being the most nominated film without a Best Picture nomination, although it is up for Best British Film as well. Rounding out the last of the Best Pic nominees with 6 nods is the film that has swept everything it can so far and is very arguably the front-runner for the Oscar, THE SOCIAL NETWORK.

Here's the total breakdown, with all categories but the shorts, including Foreign Film, British Film, & British Debut.
