Atonement, Atonement, Atonement!

The Broadcast Film Critics Association announced their nominations for 2007 earlier today, with Atonement up for five awards. There was also a nomination for Alan Cumming's Tin Man in the Picture Made for Television category. The awards will air live on VH1 in the US on January 7.

Here's a breakdown of Atonement's nominations:
Picture: "American Gangster," "Atonement," "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly," "Into the Wild," "Juno," "The Kite Runner," "Michael Clayton," "No Country for Old Men," "Sweeney Todd," "There Will Be Blood."

Supporting Actress: Cate Blanchett, "I'm Not There"; Catherine Keener, "Into the Wild"; Vanessa Redgrave, "Atonement"; Amy Ryan, "Gone Baby Gone"; Tilda Swinton, "Michael Clayton."

Director: Tim Burton, "Sweeney Todd"; Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, "No Country for Old Men"; Sidney Lumet, "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead"; Sean Penn, "Into the Wild"; Julian Schnabel, "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly"; Joe Wright, "Atonement."

Young Actress: Nikki Blonsky, "Hairspray"; Dakota Blue Richards, "The Golden Compass"; AnnaSophia Robb, "Bridge to Terabithia"; Saoirse Ronan, "Atonement."

Composer: Marco Beltrami, "3:10 to Yuma"; Alexandre Desplat, "Lust, Caution"; Clint Eastwood, "Grace Is Gone"; Jonny Greenwood, "There Will Be Blood"; Dario Marianelli, "Atonement"; Alan Menken, "Enchanted."

Sadly, there was no mention of the brilliant James McAvoy, so let's hope the Golden Globe nominations will make up for this ridiculous and unpardonable snub later on this week.

Don't forget to go to for a complete list of the nominees.
