- Multiple nominations also handed to George Clooney

THE CONSTANT GARDENER emerged at the top of the pile after this morning’s announcement of the 2006 Bafta nominations - a set of nominations which seems to have put the politics back into movieland.

The film about rum goings on in the drugs industry in developing countries received ten Bafta nominations, one ahead of Ang Lee’s stunning gay-western Brokeback Mountain and Crash, a film with racial issues as one of its central themes.

Other films to be on the receiving end of multiple nominations were Pride and Prejudice and Good Night and Good Luck, George Clooney’s movie about right-wing government and media methods in 1950s America, that has yet to be released in the UK.

Clooney received four other nominations including two for Best Supporting Actor - one for Good Night, Good Luck, the other for Syriana.

The winners of the Bafta awards will be unveiled at a ceremony on the 19th of February.
