Celebrating 75 years in style

The 75th anniversary of BAFTA will be celebrated in style. There is a welcome, diverse list of films and names - those in front of the camera, and those behind it. A shift in the industry has been reflected by the nominations.

A change for the better

There is also a mood shift this year, surely something that has come out after the world slowly gets over the pandemic. Blockbusters seem to be the voters’ favourites with ‘Dune’ receiving 11 nominations and the ‘No Time to Die’, Daniel Craig’s final portrayal of ‘Bond’, with 5.

Female equality

Diversity is key this year. Three out of the six directors nominated are female, leaving out big names like Spielberg and Branagh. ‘Power of the Dog’, which has received 8 nominations in total, is about toxic masculinity, which pulls a focus on many issues that have been circulating around Hollywood. This year, there is the highest number of women nominated, ever.

Director

Jane Campion (pictured) has been praised for her film, ‘Power of the Dog’ and is expected to be praised further with a win. Audrey Diwan (Happening) and Julia Ducournau (Titane) are the other two females joining her in this category.

The nominees for best director

Paul Thomas Anderson (Licorice Pizza) is no stranger to award nominations - or wins. He was nominated for Director in 2008 with the marvellous ‘There Will Be Blood’. He has already won the Atlanta Film Critics Circle award for best screenplay for ‘Licorice Pizza’. Aleem Khan (After Love) and Ryûsuke Hamaguchi (Drive My Car) join the other nominees.

Best Film: 'Dune' yes, 'West Side Story' no

The only surprising nomination in this category is that the critically acclaimed ‘West Side Story’ didn’t make the cut. ‘Dune’ has swept the floor with nominations and this sci-fi film is up for the best film award. It may be serious, but it is most definitely a blockbuster - an unexpected preference for BAFTA.

The nominees for 'Best Film'

‘Belfast’, ‘Don’t Look Up’, ‘Licorice Pizza’ and ‘Power of the Dog’ join ‘Dune’ as the nominees for one of the most desirable categories: Best Film.

Outstanding British Film

The extent of talent in this category puts British film firmly on the scene. There is no better word to describe these nominees than ‘outstanding’. The musical ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ is in the mix, as well as Bond’s ‘No Time To Die’. The Bond film, ‘Skyfall’ won the award in 2013.

BAFTA nominees for Best Leading Actress

Alana Haim is up for her first BAFTA, whilst Lady Gaga is back with a second nomination in this category - her first being in 2019 for ‘A Star is Born’. Lady Gaga is looking to pick up this award in 2022 with her incredible performance in ‘House of Gucci’, where the singer/actress is barely recognisable in her role.
