The nominations for this year's BAFTA film awards have been announced, with super-villain origins story Joker picking up the most nods with 11.

The film - which charts the transformation of a failed stand-up comedian into the iconic nemesis of Batman - picked up 11 nominations, including in the Best Film and Leading Actor categories.

Other films to pick up an armful of nominations include Martin Scorsese's gangster epic The Irishman and Quentin Tarantino's revisionist Tinseltown love letter Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which both received 10 nominations.

Sir Sam Mendes' one-shot war movie 1917 picked up nine, and Taika Waititi's Hitler-centric comedy Jojo Rabbit received six.

As has become commonplace in recent years, the announcement of the BAFTA nominees was followed by mass criticism over its lack of diversity; all five of the awards Leading Actor nominees are white.

Joaquin Phoenix is the favourite for Best Actor for his role in Joker, while also nominated in the category are Taron Egerton, who played Sir Elton John in Rocketman, as well as Leonardo DiCaprio for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Adam Driver for Marriage Story, and Jonathan Pryce for The Two Popes.

No females have been given the nod in the Best Director category - the seventh year in a row that no female directors have been nominated.

Greta Gerwig could have received a nomination for her work on Little Women, a film that was nominated for both Leading and Supporting Actress.

Instead, the nominees consist of Bong Joon-ho for Parasite, Sam Mendes for 1917, Todd Phillips for Joker, Martin Scorsese for The Irishman, and Quentin Tarantino for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Margot Robbie has double the chance of taking home a Best Supporting Actress Role this year, having been nominated twice for both her role as Kayla Pospisil in Bombshell, and her portrayal of Sharon Tate in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood as Sharon Tate.

Scarlett Johansson also goes up against her self, although in separate categories; she is nominated for both Best Actress (Marriage Story) and Best Supporting Actress (Jojo Rabbit).
