EE BAFTAs 2020 – Joker leads nominations

It’s award season, y’all. Now it’s time for the EE BAFTA Nominations!

BAFTA nominations are always highly predictable, very safe, very male, and very, very white. This year is no different with the usual suspects – 1917, Joker, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with Joker leading the pack with 11 nominations. Films such as The Two Popes and Little Women have earned a big boost with their respect nods.

There are some huge surprises in the nominations. The biggest one being TWO Best Supporting Actress nominations for Margot Robbie in her performances for Bombshell and Once Upon a Time In Hollywood. Ignoring the likes of Jennifer Lopez for Hustlers, Zhao Shuzhen for The Farewell, Octavia Spencer for Luce and many other deserving supporting nominations that deserve to be there.

The same has to be said for all acting nominations which are, indeed, all white. There are so many incredible performances including Jamie Foxx, Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Awkwafina, Kelvin Harrison Jr, Sterling K. Brown, and so many more! It’s a shame that these awards do not feel representative of the diverse and bountiful films we had of the last year.

Missing Link’s missing nomination is also a surprise from Best Animated Film, the British led stop-motion film recently scooped up the Golden Globe so it’s omission seems erroneous at best.

Our happy surprises include a Best Leading Actress nomination for Jessie Buckley for Wild Rose, Parasite getting a BEST FILM NOD, Florence Pugh earning a Supporting Actress nomination, Booksmart has a Best Original Screenplay and For Sama gets oodles of love here.

Kathleen Kennedy will get the Fellowship Award and here are the EE Rising Star Nominations.

The BAFTAs will be announced February 2nd where Graham Norton will be hosting!
