BAFTA 2021 : Film Awards reveals longlists for all categories

The choice to add an underlying round was introduced last year following a significant survey pointed toward addressing to the absence of diversity in recent nominations.

Without precedent for its set of experiences, the British Academy has delivered longlists across all classes for its film grants.

The final nominations lists will be declared March 9, with the service — delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic — presently because of occur April 11.

The decision to publish the nominations longlists was made as a feature of a significant update to BAFTA’s democratic methodology declared a year ago pointed toward tending to the absence of variety at the BAFTA film grants. Inside approximately 120 wide-running changes, another longlisting beginning round was presented, bringing about three rounds of casting a ballot. Cycle one democratic, which occurred from January 12 to 26, delivered the longlists in all classifications being declared.

“The longlists announced today reflect some of the key changes we’ve already begun to implement as part of our ongoing review,” said BAFTA film committee chair Marc Samuelson.

“A big thank you goes to our membership for embracing these changes so positively and quickly especially during this challenging time. I hope today’s longlists shows you that we remain committed to change in all aspects of the BAFTA’s awards on an ongoing basis.”
