Nominations for the 75th British Academy Film Awards have been announced, with Dune emerging as the leader of the pack with 11 nominations.

Following on from Dune, which was part filmed in Abu Dhabi, is Benedict Cumberbatch-starrer, The Power of the Dog with eight Bafta nominations and Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast with six.

There were a few surprise additions and absentees on the list of nominees.

Kristen Stewart’s Princess Diana drama Spencer was snubbed entirely, as was Tick Tick … Boom!, which landed Andrew Garfield a Best Actor Golden Globe last month.

In the Leading Actress category, there was the surprise omission of both Olivia Colman for The Lost Daughter and Nicole Kidman for Being the Ricardos.

A surprise success came in After Love, which received four nominations for Outstanding British Film, Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer as well as a nod for Director, Aleem Khan, and the Leading Actress, Joanna Scanlan.

The film tells the story of Mary Hussain, a white convert to Islam who lives in the British coastal town of Dover. After her husband's unexpected death, she finds that he has a secret hidden across the English Channel in Calais, France.
