The golden season continues! La La Land leads the pack for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ movie awards after nominations were announced on Tuesday, January 10.

The Damien Chazelle-directed romantic musical, which stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, was recognized in 11 categories, including Best Film. (La La Land won seven Golden Globes on Sunday, making it the first film to take home the most wins by a single film.) Arrival and Nocturnal Animals tied in second with nine nominations and Manchester by the Sea earned six, with Globe victor Casey Affleck snagging a nod for Best Actor.

Meryl Streep also came out on top. The three-time Oscar winner, 67, was nominated for her 15th BAFTA award, one day after President-elect Donald Trump called her “overrated.” The mogul, 70, tweeted about the star after she slammed him during her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes. Without uttering his name, she called Trump out for mocking New York Times investigative reporter Serge F. Kovaleski, who suffers from a congenital joint condition, during a rally in 2015.

“There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good. There was nothing good about it. But it was effective, and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth,” Streep said on Sunday night. “It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it. I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”
