Recently, we discussed how having an ELLE cover is really good for your love life. Don’t believe us? See the evidence for yourself. Now, the BAFTA nominations have been announced, and we can’t help but spot yet another correlation with a number of ELLE cover stars scooping nominations in leading categories.
Both Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne have secured nominations for Leading Actor with respective films, The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything; Keira Knightley, who has graced our cover multiple times, was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for The Imitation Game.
Redmayne’s Stephen Hawking biopic, The Theory of Everything, was one of the top BAFTA honorees, with ten nominations in total. See his ELLE cover here.
Knightley and Cumberbatch’s The Imitation Game followed closely behind, with both films winning nominations in the Best Film, Outstanding British Film, and Adapted Screenplay categories. See Keira Knightley and Benedict Cumberbatch's ELLE covers.
The BAFTA ceremony takes place on 8 February, and somehow we’re thinking it will be a close battle between some of our favourite ELLE cover stars. Watch this space.
