LONDON (AP) ' Will the spies or the silent stars triumph?

Espionage thriller "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and mute movie "The Artist" lead the race for Sunday's British Academy Film Awards, Britain's equivalent of the Oscars.

"The Artist" has 12 nominations and "Tinker Tailor" 11, both including best picture and director.

There are also multiple nominations for "Hugo," ''My Week With Marilyn," ''The Iron Lady" and "The Help."

The British prizes, known as BAFTAs, are considered a strong indicator of likely success at Hollywood's Academy Awards, and stars including Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Meryl Streep are due at the Royal Opera House ceremony.

Director Martin Scorsese is due to receive a special award for his "outstanding and exceptional" contribution to cinema.
