When it arrived back in the summer of 2014, The Grand Budapest Hotel was seen as one of the best pictures of the year. But would movie award voters remember it come January?

Looks like they have, as the film has done quite well with Golden Globe nominations, SAG nominations, Producers Guild nominations and most recently Writers Guild nominations.

With the announcement of The Grand Budapest Hotel’s 11 nods for BAFTA, don’t be surprised if the film hears its name called quite often when Oscar nominations are revealed January 15. 

Host Stephen Fry announced the BAFTA nominations and he will oversee the awards show on February 8.
