Avatar, Zoe Saldana, An Education Carey Mulligan, The Hurt Locker, Jeremy Renner Twentieth Century Fox, Sony Pictures Classics, Summit Entertainment

The Hurt Locker maintains its lead in the Oscar race, but the critical darling's definitely looking over its shoulder at some blue people.

Coming off a pair of big wins at the Golden Globes, Avatar joins the war flick and the considerably smaller An Education on the leader board for the Orange British Film Academy Awards nominations, announced this morning. The trio of films is up for eight BAFTAs each.

District 9 follows close behind with seven and Up in the Air and Inglourious Basterds stay near the top with six each.
