As previously announced, Michael Sheen appeared on BAFTA’s Long List (15 nominations per category) that was released 8th January. Michael received a nomination for Lead Actor for his performance in The Damned United and his co-star, Timothy Spall, also received a nomination for Supporting Actor in the same film. The Damned United itself was on the list under the Adapted Screenplay category.
The second round of voting has now taken place and the Long List has been reduced to 5 nominations per category. Sadly, Michael did not make the short list.
The Lead Actor category now appears as:
|EFF BRIDGES – Crazy Heart|
|GEORGE CLOONEY – Up in the Air|
|COLIN FIRTH – A Single Man|
|JEREMY RENNER – The Hurt Locker|
|ANDY SERKIS – Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll|
We are all very disappointed that neither Michael Sheen, nor The Damned United made the shortlist.
Michael Sheen has been nominated for a BAFTA in the past.
