A German remake of the anti-war classic All Quiet on the Western Front leads nominations for the British Academy Film Awards, overtaking other awards season favourites with 14 nods.

Based on the epic 1928 novel by German author Erich Maria Remarque about life in the trenches in the First World War, the movie was recognised in the best film category, as well as for foreign language films, for director, supporting actor, adapted screenplay, original score and other craft prizes. The list was announced on Thursday.

It equals 2001's Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon as the film not in the English language with the most nominations in Bafta’s history, organisers said.

Dark comedy The Banshees of Inisherin and the dimension-hopping Everything Everywhere All at Once, which both won prizes at the Golden Globes earlier this month, each secured 10 nominations.

Baz Luhrmann's Elvis Presley biopic Elvis came in third with nine nominations, while drama Tár — about a conductor of a Berlin orchestra whose career comes tumbling down with an abuse scandal — has five nods.

“The Baftas are a celebration of the full spectrum of craft and creativity that go into filmmaking," Jane Millichip, chief executive of Bafta, said in a statement.

"We extend our warmest congratulations to the 215 people nominated who represent 45 extraordinary films, spanning a vast range of narrative styles, genres and perspectives."

Known as the Baftas (British Academy of Film and Television Arts), Britain’s top movie honours will be awarded on February 19 in London.
