LONDON — Cold War monster movie "The Shape of Water" led nominations Tuesday for the British Academy Film Awards as organizers announced a new female host and promised to fight sexism and sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry.

Guillermo del Toro's fantastical thriller scored nominations in 12 categories, including best picture and best director, for the U.K. equivalent of the Oscars.

Del Toro said the nominations were vindication for an ambitious, genre-crossing movie "so in love with cinema that it fuses melodrama, musical, spy thriller, comedy."

New BAFTA ceremony host Joanna Lumley, known for her role in "Absolutely Fabulous," applauded those who created a sea of black gowns at the Golden Globes in Los Angeles as a sign of solidarity against sexual harassment and abuse.

"I think our business must clean itself up and so must other businesses. But our responsibility is to make sure that our industry is squeaky clean and safe and a wonderful and darling place to work where people are free and no sort of, I don't know, no threat of them," Lumley said. She added, "I'm fine. I've always been tall, I've always been quite sort of feisty. I've always had a bit of lip if you know what I mean? And so I've been lucky. Others who haven't been lucky, I'm so full of sympathy."
