The nominees list for the 73rd British Academy Film Awards are out and the shotlist was read out by Sex Education‘s Asa Butterfield and Charlie’s Angels‘ Ella Balinska.

This year, the most nominated film was Joker, which earned 11 nominations including Best Film.The Irishman  and Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood both picked up 10 noms.

following closely behind with 9 nominations is  Sam Mendes‘ World War I drama 1917.

The awards scheme has since come under heavy fire since people noticed the absence of people of color and also female filmmakers.

 

Respoding to the backlash, the British Academy board had this to say,

“We’d have liked to have seen more diversity in the nominations, it does continue to be an industry-wide issue,” BAFTA’s director of awards, Emma Baehr, told The Hollywood Reporter following the nominations. “I think more films need to be made, and entered, giving people a chance to see them. We’d absolutely like to see more diversity, but I also don’t want to take away from those celebrating today.”

The 2020 BAFTA Awards will take place at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Feb. 2.
