Just two days after Hollywood foreign's press gave La La Land their biggest haul of awards at the Golden Globes, the British Academy revealed the list of nominations for its upcoming film awards, with the musical again leading the pack. 

Announced early Tuesday morning in the U.K. (late Monday LA), with Preacher's Dominic Cooper and Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner reading out the shortlisted names from BAFTA's London HQ, La La Land emerged with 11 nominations, including best director, best film and both best actor and actress. Arrival and Nocturnal Animals followed behind with nine nominations each, while Manchester By the Sea came away with six. 

Elsewhere, British films had a chance to shine, with Ken Loach's Cannes-winner I, Daniel Blake earning four nominations alongside Lion, Florence Foster Jenkins, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Hacksaw Ridge and Moonlight

The awards ceremony itself will take place on Feb. 12, this time moving to the Royal Albert Hall, with Stephen Fry hosting for a 12th time.
