Fresh from its Golden Globes success, La La Land has gained 11 nominations in the British equivalent, the Baftas.

Director Damian Chazelle's musical romance is nominated for best film, original music, cinematography, editing, production design, costume design and sound.

Chazelle is nominated for best director and original screenplay, while Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are nominated in the leading actor and actress categories for their roles as artists who dream of love and success but end up having to choose between them.

Australian Nicole Kidman has a best supporting actress nod for her role in Lion, for which she was also nominated for a Golden Globe.

But it was La La Land that swept the Golden Globe awards off its feet on Sunday in Los Angeles, winning seven trophies including best film in the musical or comedy category for its bittersweet American love story told in song and dance.

Stone and Gosling - who learned jazz piano and tap dance for his role as a pianist - took both lead acting prizes in the comedy or musical category.

The film faces competition at the Baftas from Arrival and Nocturnal Animals, with nine nominations each, and Manchester by the Sea with six nominations.

Four films are nominated in five categories: Hacksaw Ridge, Lion, I, Daniel Blake, and Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Casey Affleck, for Manchester by the Sea, and Jake Gyllenhaal, for psychological thriller Nocturnal Animals, will rival Gosling in the best actor category.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts will announce the winners on February 12 at London's Royal Albert Hall.
