    With the Golden Globes behind us, award season has officially begun.

    The next few months promise a lot of red carpet political statements, inspiring speeches and of course some Hollywood glamour.

    But while the Golden Globes was just days ago, the most talked-about award ceremony this week is the BAFTAs, with the 2020 nominations revealed today.

    Spoiler alert – they are pretty divisive.

    From Greta Gerwig receiving yet another Best Director snub (have the judges not seen Little Women?!) to Margot Robbie pitted against herself in the Best Supporting Actress category, it has been making non-stop news.

    Here are the 2020 BAFTA nominations…
