BAFTA 2021: Nomadland and Rocks lead the nominations

0

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced today (9) the films nominated for BAFTA 2021. Nomadland and Rocks lead the nominations, with seven each. Another highlight for this year’s ceremony is the presence of four women in the category of Best Director.

In 2020, only men competed in the category. The actress Rebel Wilson, responsible for presenting the nominees, took the opportunity to joke about it in the end, saying that she would not imagine making films like them for “not having balls”.

In the category of Best Direction, in addition to Chloé Zhao – who also competes in the categories of Best Screenplay and Best Editing -, Shannon Murphy, Jasmila Žbanic and Sarah Gavron appear as nominees. Thomas Vinterberg and Lee Isaac Chung complete the list.

Another change from the previous year is the presence of black and Asian actors. In 2020, BAFTA was criticized for excluding black actors in the four acting categories (Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Supporting Actor). BAFTA cinema committee chairman Marc Samuelson admitted that there is an “irritating lack of diversity in acting nominees”. The organization reformulated the voting process for 2021 in an attempt to have more inclusive nominees, as it did. This year, 15 of the 24 nominees are black or Asian.

Brazilian Bacurau was left out of the list. The film by Brazilians Juliano Dornelles and Kleber Mendonça Filho has once again gained prominence for appearing on the list of eligible for the Oscar 2021. Despite this, the feature has not appeared in this year’s awards so far.

The BAFTA 2021 ceremony takes place on April 11. See the list of nominees below.
