Fresh from sweeping the board at the Golden Globhees, La La Land is leading the charge in this year's BAFTA nominations with 11 nods.

The musical, directed by Damien Chazelle won a record-breaking seven Golden Globes on Sunday and is out in the UK this Friday (January 13).

There were nine nominations each for Denis Villeneuve's thoughtful science fiction adaptation Arrival and Tom Ford's psychological drama Nocturnal Animals.

The Outstanding British film award category will see established names Ken Loach (I, Daniel Blake) and Andrea Arnold (American Honey) vie against first-time feature directors Pete Middleton and James Spinney (Notes On Blindness) and Babak Anvari (Under The Shadow), with David Yates' blockbuster Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them and Mick Jackson's Holocaust drama Denial rounding out the category.

Here is the full list of nominations for this year's awards, which are being held at London's Royal Albert Hall on 12 February.
