Gosh, wasn't it nice to have a break from all this awards malarkey over the Christmas break? It's three weeks since our last column, and until the start of this week, the guilds and critics awards had been quiet, with holiday season box office and the actual Oscar ballots going out had been the only real happenings.

'Black Swan' Does Well, 'The Social Network' Less So So, the British Academy Of Film and Television Award nominations were announced in the wee hours of this morning by Dominic Cooper and Talulah Riley, and while it hasn't changed the shape of the awards race by any means, there's certainly a few eyebrows raised as a result. The nominations are now nestled neatly in a slot between the Golden Globe ceremony and the Oscar nominations, and so have some degree of value, at least as a precursor, in the Oscar prediction game.
