Don't have time to comment very much on these. The Artist has 12 nominations; Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is close behind with 11. The Artist pretty much has this one in the bag, I think, unless Tinker Tailor collects a lot of Oscar nominations, which would be a big surprise. BAFTA like to spread the wealth with their winners, but films often tend to rack up a lot of nominations here too.
