LONDON - Joker leads this year's Bafta Award nominations with 11, while both The Irishman and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood have 10.
The Todd Phillips-directed origins story leads the way for this year's ceremony, making the shortlist for the coveted Best Picture accolade, as well as Leading Actor for Joaquin Phoenix, Director, Adapted Screenplay and a number of technical categories including for production design and hair and make-up.
Following shortly behind Joker, both The Irishman and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood have received 10 nominations.
They will also contest for Best Picture, alongside 1917 - which is up for nine awards in total - and Parasite.
Joining Joaquin in the Leading Actor category were Leonardo DiCaprio (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), Adam Driver (Marriage Story), Taron Egerton (Rocketman) and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes), while Leading Actress will be contested between Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose), Charlize Theron (Bombshell), Scarlett Johansson (Marriage Story), Saoirse Ronan (Little Women) and Renee Zellweger (Judy).
The Irishman actors Al Pacino and Joe Pesci will go head-to-head in the Supporting Actor category, but they face competition from Tom Hanks (A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood), Sir Anthony Hopkins (The Two Popes) and Brad Pitt (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) for the gong.
