Senna earns BAFTA nominations

Senna earns three BAFTA nominations ahead of next month's awards ceremony
The documentary on the late Ayrton Senna has secured three nominations ahead of the British Academy Film Awards, which take place at the Royal Opera House in London next month.

The film will go up against My Week with Marilyn, Shame, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and We Need to Talk About Kevin for outstanding British film, while it is also nominated for best documentary alongside Project Nim and George Harrison: Living in the Material World.

Senna is one of five films seeking to secure the BAFTA for editing.

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

Senna has already secured a number of honours, having picked up awards at the Sundance Film Festival and Los Angeles Film Festival.

@ Taipan, are you being serious? Ayrton was sick of Balleste changing the rules in favour of Alain, like moving pole position after qualifying to the dirty side of the track. ...and for 1990, this was PURELY revenge for being shafted in 1989 by Ballestre and for chaning pole to the dirty side of the track (as said above). I LOVED Ayrton for his actions that day. Yes, if was very dangerous and reckless but it was justified.

Jimmers I think if they'd have shown loads of collisions only to justify the inclusion of the stewart interview, the rest of the documentary may have been comprimised somewhat! the amount of collisions was alluded to, including the heavy focus on senna's coming togethers with prost, and senna's higher than average number of incidents was made very clear to the viewer. the stewart interview served only to give more insight into the frustration senna felt regarding his victimisation by the FIA. personally I loved the documentary... it is emotive, eye-opening and gives a real view of how senna progressed in f1. I would've liked to have seen more of his euro grand prix win at donington in the wet though!! only thing i'll say is that i thought it was bit wasted on blu-ray due to all the footage being old and pretty poor quality
