La La Land leads the race at this year’s British Academy (BAFTA) Film Awards with 11 nominations.

The musical starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling continues to dazzle awards voters after an impressive clean sweep at the Golden Globes Sunday, where it won all seven of its nominated categories.

Director Damien Chazelle’s ode to the bright lights of Los Angeles is up for best film, best director and best screenplay for Chazelle, and Stone and Gosling are nominated in best actress and best actor respectively.
