‘Lincoln’ gets 10 BAFTA nominations, but Spielberg left out

“Lincoln”, the story of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln’s battle to end slavery starring Daniel Day-Lewis in the title role, won 10 BAFTA nominations, putting it ahead of the pack at Britain’s top film honors.

The biopic was shortlisted in categories including best film, actor, supporting actor (Tommy Lee Jones) and supporting actress (Sally Field), but director Steven Spielberg was not nominated.

Leading man Daniel Day-Lewis is in the running for the Leading Actor title for his portrayal of the iconic president, who abolished slavery in the States, and another one of its many nods include the prestigious Best Film award.

The ceremony will be held at London’s Royal Opera House on February 10 and is to be hosted by Stephen Fry, with the BBC broadcasting the whole event.
