"Lincoln" led this morning's BAFTA nominations with 10 mentions, followed closely by "Life of Pi" and ""Les Misérables" with nine each -- but in something of twist, only one of those field-leading Best Film nominees managed an accompanying Best Director nomination, as Steven Spielberg and Tom Hooper, both nominated yesterday by the DGA, were frozen out by the British Academy. Less compromised success was enjoyed by "Argo," with seven nominations -- indeed, BAFTA took such a shine to Ben Affleck's film that they became the first group to nominate him for Best Actor too.

"Skyfall," the highest-grossing film in UK box-office history managed eight nominations, including ones for Judi Dench and Javier Bardem -- but Best Film, perhaps surprisingly, was not among them. Meanwhile, the year's other home-grown box office sensation, "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," earned a solitary nomination in the Best British Film category, with even BAFTA darling Maggie Smith left on the sidelines. Ouch. Full list of nominees after the jump.
