“The Favourite” led the nominations for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards on Wednesday, with 12 nods for the costume piece that has already won its leading actress Olivia Colman several prizes.

Colman plays Britain’s 18th-century Queen Anne in a comedy-drama with plenty of laugh-out-loud scenes.
