    Steven Spielberg could have used Abraham Lincoln’s negotiating skills. Spielberg’s Lincoln dominated the BAFTA nominations on Wednesday, bringing in 10 nods, including Best Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), Best Supporting Actor (Tommy Lee Jones), and Best Supporting Actress (Sally Field)—but no love for the director. British critics said Lincoln could dominate the Oscar nominations, which will be announced Thursday. Meanwhile, the musical Les Misérables and the shipwreck saga Life of Pi came in not far behind Lincoln, with nine nominations apiece. The latest James Bond installment, Skyfall, received eight, and Ben Affleck’s Argo won six.
