  ROTK in line for 12 Bafta awards
Updated 19 January 2004, 10.17
Return of the King has 12 nominations
The Return of the King has been nominated for 12 awards at the Baftas, including Best Film and Best Director.

Sir Ian McKellan was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Gandalf, and the film is also in the running for best adapted screenplay.

But ROTK isn't the film with the most nominations - that's Cold Mountain which could win as many as 13 awards.

The Baftas are the most important film awards in the UK, and the winners will be announced on 15 February.

Stephen Fry will host the awards

Up against ROTK and Cold Mountain for Best Film are Lost in Translation, Master and Commander and Big Fish.

Jonny Depp's swaggering role in Pirates of the Caribbean has also been recognised, earning a Best Actor nomination.

Films that do well at the Baftas often do well at the Oscars too, which happen a month later in the US.
