As usual, Hollywood and Anglo-American productions dominate the longlists of the 2009 British Academy of Film and Television Awards.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Frost/Nixon have 14 nominations each, followed by Slumdog Millionaire, The Reader, Revolutionary Road, Changeling, and The Dark Knight with 13; Milk and Burn After Reading with 11; and Doubt, The Wrestler, Mamma Mia!, The Duchess, and In Bruges with 9.

Small British films managed only a handful of nods: three for Hunger and Happy-Go-Lucky; two for Dean Spanley. Non-English-language films fared just as poorly: five nominations for I’ve Loved You So Long, three for Waltz with Bashir, two for Persepolis, plus screenplay nods for The Baader Meinhof Complex and Gomorrah.

The final nominations will be announced on Jan. 15. The BAFTA ceremony will take place Feb. 8 at London’s Royal Opera House.

    Did anyone even see the brilliant and complex makeup work in HellboyII: The Golden Army? This is an inexplicable snub…

    The British Academy might want to change their name to the Hollywood Academy of Film. Really…
