Lincoln led all films with 10 BAFTA nominations, but director Steven Spielberg was not among the five directors recognized by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Daniel Day-Lewis, Tommy Lee Jones, Sally Field, cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, screenwriter Tony Kushner, and composer John Williams were among the Lincoln landslide, but the British Academy opted to reward Amour director Michael Hanake and Django Unchained auteur Quentin Tarantino, even though neither of those films were mentioned for Best Film.

Spielberg isn’t alone; Les Misérables director Tom Hooper was also overlooked. Both directors’ films  joined Oscar contenders Argo, Life of Pi, and Zero Dark Thirty in the race for Best Film. Les Misérables and Life of Pi were each nominated in nine categories, including nods for Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway; Skyfall earned eight nominations, Argo received seven nominations — including a Best Actor nod for Ben Affleck — and Anna Karenina has six. Django Unchained and Zero Dark Thirty were each nominated five times.
