Wes Anderson’s comedy drama The Grand Budpest Hotel is the hit of the 2015 Bafta Film nominations, leading the field with nods in 11 categories.
It will vie for best film with The Theory of Everything and The Imitation Game – which picked up ten and nine nominations, respectively – with Anderson also recognised as director and for his original screenplay.
Unlikely comedy actor Ralph Fiennes will take on Imitation and Theory stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne among others in the best actor category, while The Grand Budapest Hotel is also rewarded for its sumptuous visuals with nominations for cinematography, editing, production design, costume design and make-up and hair.
The immersive tale of a famous concierge, Gustave H (Fiennes), and the diverse and eccentric guests who stay at his 1930s hotel doesn’t just look good either, also featuring in the original music and sound categories.
