'Tis the season for the British Academy Film Awards. With only 12 days until the Film Awards telecast on Sunday, February 16 on BBC One-- at the height of Oscar voting, just two weeks before the Oscar telecast -- BAFTA has unveiled the official trailer for the 2014 awards. Watch below.

The nominees, replete with Oscar frontrunners, are here. Last year's BAFTA winner for Best Film, "Argo," went on to win five Academy Awards including Best Picture. This year's BAFTA nominees for Best Film are frontrunner "12 Years a Slave," directed by Brit Steve McQueen and starring Brit Chiwetel Ejifor and Irish Michael Fassbender, American David O. Russell's "American Hustle," starring Brit Christian Bale, "Captain Phillips," directed by Brit Paul Greengrass, Mexican Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity," which filmed in the U.K., and Stephen Frears' "Philomena," starring Dame Judi Dench and Steve Coogan, the only bona fide British film of the lot.
