Even though 'The Favourite' landed a total of 12 BAFTA nominations, it was Bradley Cooper who walked away with a record.
The Hollywood Reporter wrote that 'A Star Is Born' earned seven nominations, five of which were for Cooper in the best film, actor, best director, adapted screenplay and original music categories, which BAFTA said had not happened before in its 72-year history.
Speaking about it, Emma Baehr, BAFTA's director of awards and memberships said, ''What we think is a first is that Bradley Cooper has been nominated for producer, director, writer, actor, and composer.''
According to Baehr, Cooper actually broke George Clooney's 2005 record where he had recieved four BAFTA nominations across multiple disciplines including best director, best-supporting actor and best screenplay for 'Good Night', and 'Good Luck' and best-supporting actor for Syriana
Alfonso Cuaron picked up six individual nominations for Roma, for best film, foreign language film, director, cinematography, editing, and original screenplay.
