The British Academy of Film and Television Arts released its slate of nominees for the best films of 2016 on Tuesday, hailing current awards season favorites as well as some outliers that have so far flown under the radar this year.



It's no surprise that recent juggernaut "La La Land" racked up the most BAFTA nominations, scoring 11 nods including best film, director, original screenplay, actor, and actress, as well as citations in a bunch of technical categories. Tied for second place with nine nominations apiece were "Arrival" and "Nocturnal Animals," with recent surprise Golden Globe winner Aaron Taylor-Johnson receiving another nod for the latter film.



"Harry Potter" spinoff "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" also racked up an impressive number of nominations, with citations in five categories, including Outstanding British Film. But "Potter" author J.K. Rowling missed out on a screenwriting nod for her feature film debut, and also failed to earn a spot among nominees in the Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director, or Producer category.



The full list of film nominations is below. The 2016 British Academy Film Awards will be handed out at a ceremony in London on February 12.
