Bafta Film Nominations 2021

Last year’s nominations sparked criticism over the all-white acting nominees and lack of female directors.

Big changes have been made for this year including the introduction of a longlist system in a bid to increase viewership of all the submitted films.

Changes to BAFTA 2021 judging process

Following a seven-month review into the lack of diversity last year, Bafta has said it has introduced more than 120 changes to its voting, membership and campaigning processes.

They include the introduction of a new longlist round of voting, the expansion of the outstanding British film field to 10 nominations, and increasing all four acting categories and best director to six nominees in an attempt to ensure greater diversity.

Film committee chair Marc Samuelson added: “One of the key issues raised time and time again… was that too much deserving work was not being seen. The changes we are implementing are designed to ensure these films are seen and judged on merit alone.”

The new first-round longlist voting system was introduced to encourage the 6,500 Bafta members to watch a wider range of films. Members vote to decide the nominations from hundreds of films up for consideration.

Nomadland and Rocks lead the way at the Bafta film awards.
