BAFTA Final Nominations: Frost/Nixon scored 6 and The Duchess gets 2 Nominations

The final nominations for this year's 2009 British Film Academy Awards (BAFTA) was announced last Thursday (Jan. 15th).

Frost/Nixon's (who made the long list with 14 noms) final BAFTA nominations are now down to 6, whereas Keira and The Duchesss went down from 9 to 2 nominations (unfortunately, they snubbed Keira Knightley for Best Actress and her movie for Best Film)...
