BAFTA 2019 nominations: 'The Favourite' is the favorite

(TheFavouriteMovie/Facebook)

One of the biggest entertainment award shows of the year in Britain has announced its nominations.

The list came out Wednesday for the British Academy Film Awards, better known as the BAFTAs (for host organization British Academy of Film and Television Arts). The Favourite, a British comedy about a power struggle between two female confidants of Queen Anne, came away with 12 nominations, more than any other film.

Also hitting a high note was Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody and the Lady Gaga-led A Star Is Born remake. Both films, along with the Netflix Spanish-language art piece Roma, came away with seven nominations.

The awards show, which is considered one of the last precursors for the Oscars, will take place Feb. 10 in London.
