Ok, while searching for news on the BAFTA nominations, I've just read on Variety.com that Atonement actually got 17 nominations!!!! Though most are reporting 14, but I love the 17 total nominations part from the Variety article.
Check out the article below:
"Atonement" has nods in every category for which it is eligible, but its clear overall lead is due to having four runners in the supporting actress race - Brenda Blethyn, Romola Garai, Saoirse Ronan and Vanessa Redgrave.
Congrats again to the cast and crew of Atonement (Keira, James, Saorsi, Joe, Dario Marianelli, etc.) for their 14 (or 17 ) nominations!!!!
