The BAFTA nominations have been released and they include the list of actors, actresses & films that most people had been expecting.
But wait, take a closer look at you’ll see that ALL but one of the nominations for the leading actor award have names beginning with J! Amongst the Javiers, Jeffs, Jesses & James’, Colin Firth is the only gent whose name doesn’t begin with J.
What does this mean, has the nominations committee gone crazy? Did they all assume Firth will win it anyway so just picked a letter at random for the others and J came up the winner?
Rumours might be spreading through the internet like wildfire, but so far those who run the film awards have declined to comment.
Either way, we’re all film lovers so we’d like to believe it’s just a coincidence. John Travolta’s not in the list.
