Hot from a record-breaking victory at the Golden Globes, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling's La La Land has been nominated for an astounding 11 BAFTA Awards.

While Barry Jenkins' Moonlight had previously been seen as the Damien Chazelle directed film's main rival, it was only nominated for four awards.

Instead, sci-fi epic Arrival and Tom Ford's Nocturnal Animals are the musical's closest competitors, picking up nine nominations apiece.

British film, Ken Loach's astounding I, Daniel Blake leads the pack with five nominations, including best film. Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them also picked five nominations.

As with every awards announcement, there were some snubs: most notably, Martin Scorsese's epic Silence failed to pick up any nominations, while British film American Honey only picked up one.

Game of Thrones actor Sophie Turner and Preacher's Dominic Cooper revealed the nominations on Tuesday, the full ceremony — hosted by Stephen Fry — taking place on the 12 February at the Royal Albert Hall.
