An Education, Avatar, and The Hurt Locker lead BAFTA Nominations

The 2010 BAFTA nominations have been announced, and three films boast a whopping eight nominations, with Avatar, An Education and The Hurt Locker leading the pack. Just behind is District 9 with seven, followed by Up In The Air and Inglourious Basterds with six.

It's a pretty wide spread for the Awards, which also see Coco Before Chanel, Precious: Based On The Novel Push By Sapphire, Nowhere Boy and Up get four nods each. We suspect that wide range will be reflected on the night with a relatively large number of films getting prizes, BAFTA clearly having listened to their collective mother and learned to share the wealth around.
