LONDON (AP) - Historical biopic "Lincoln" leads the race for the British Academy Film Awards, with 10 nominations at the U.K. equivalent of the Oscars.
Epic musical "Les Miserables" and boy-meets-tiger saga "Life of Pi" have nine nominations each.
Lincoln's nods, announced Wednesday, include best picture and three acting nominations - Daniel Day-Lewis for leading actor, Sally Field for supporting actress and Tommy Lee Jones for supporting actor.
In recent years, the awards, known as BAFTAs, have helped underdog films including "Slumdog Millionaire," ''The King's Speech" and "The Artist" gain momentum for Oscars success.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on Feb. 10, two weeks before the Hollywood awards.
