Senna movie gets BAFTA nominations

Senna posterThe Senna film has been nominated for three British Academy Film Awards, ahead of the gala ceremony that takes place next month.

The documentary on the life of the late three-time world champion has already proved a hit with cinema audiences, and picked up a number of trophies - including an AUTOSPORT Award last year.

Now, it has been recognised by the judges of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), who have nominated it in three categories.

Senna has been put forward in the categories for Outstanding British Film, Documentary and Editing.

In the Outstanding British Film award it is going up against My Week with Marilyn, Shame, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and We Need to talk about Kevin.

It is one of only three films in the Documentary category, with its rivals being George Harrison: Living in the material world, and Project Nim.

The BAFTA Awards ceremony takes place at London's Royal Opera House on February 12.

Writer Manish Pandey wrote on Twitter: "Senna given 3 @BAFTA nominations! Can't remember a doc that was as honoured. Thank you to the British Academy."
