Jan. 18 (UPI) -- Oppenheimer earned a leading 13 BAFTA nominations for excellence in film on Thursday morning.

Following close behind was Poor Things with 11 nods, while Killers of the Flower Moon and The Zone of Interest with nine and Anatomy of a Fall, The Holdovers and Maestro with seven.

Doctor Who and Good Omens star David Tennant is hosting the prize presentation in London on Feb. 18.

"The 38 films nominated by BAFTA voters today span an extraordinary range of genres and stories," BAFTA CEO Jane Millichip said in a statement.

"The field this year is incredibly strong. More films were entered, making the selection process particularly tough for our voting members. The films and talented people nominated represent some of the most talked about films of the year, the most critically acclaimed, and films yet to be released and discovered by audiences."
