The nominations for the BAFTA Awards have been announced and the British version of the Academy Awards has honored Gravity with 11 nominations and 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle with 10 each.

And given that we at Movie Fanatic believe that the Best Actor race for Oscar gold is the tightest it has been in decades, seeing who the Brits picked gives us a little insight into who might earn Academy Award nominations when they’re announced January 15. Bruce Dern scored a BAFTA nod for Nebraska, Chiwetel Ejiofor earned one for 12 Years a Slave, Christian Bale surprised with a nod for American Hustle, while Leonardo DiCaprio got nominated for The Wolf of Wall Street, and closing out the group, Tom Hanks earned one for Captain Phillips.

The BAFTAs will be awarded February 16. Here is the full list of nominees!
