BAFTA Awards 2022 Nominations – Full List


The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has revealed its award nominations, and they are precisely the agents of chaos that many have been anticipating.

Only the second edition of the BAFTA Film Awards since the institute’s groundbreaking diversity review in 2020, this year’s nominations are full of surprises reflecting a changing membership. While the James Bond film “No Time to Die,” which grossed $131 million at the UK box office, was expected to lead the nominations, that honor goes to Denis Villeneuve’s epic sci-fi thriller “Dune.” which garnered 11 nominations, with many of those in technical categories.

Jane Campion’s moody western “The Power of the Dog” earned eight nominations, while Kenneth Branagh’s personal coming-of-age drama “Belfast” received six. Daniel Craig’s swan song as Bond, “No Time to Die,” earned five nominations, along with Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Licorice Pizza” set in the 1970s and Steven Spielberg’s musical remake “West Side Story.” .

“The key to the whole review is to make sure more voters see more work and all the changes were geared towards that because it’s about leveling the playing field,” says BAFTA chairman Krishnendu Majumdar. Variety. “It’s not about stipulating quotas [in the nominations], because we didn’t feel like it was right and people didn’t want that. They want their work to be recognized.”

BAFTA has expanded its membership in a major recruitment drive over the past two years and aims to reach 1,000 new members by 2023. There are currently 7,000 voting members within the broader membership. The organization also introduced jury methods to the voting process in the performance and director categories last year, a move that yielded an unexpected field of contenders in 2021 and has done so again this year.

In the best actress field, Lady Gaga earned her second BAFTA nomination for “House of Gucci,” while Britain’s Joanna Scanlan (“After Love”) and Emilia Jones (“Coda) also earned nominations alongside Alana Haim (” Licorice Pizza”) and Tessa Thompson (“Passing”). A standout in the category is Norwegian star Renate Reinsve, who is nominated for her memorable performance in Joachim Trier’s “The Worst Person in the World” (also competing in the film that is not in the English language category).

Notably, missing in the best actress race are Nicole Kidman (“Being The Ricardos”) and Olivia Colman (“The Lost Daughter”), both of whom were expected to be the top two contenders in the field, and in particular the latter Briton, who won the award in 2019 for “The Favourite.” Another omission is Kristen Stewart (“Spencer”), whose Princess Diana evidently did not win over BAFTA voters.

In the race for best actor, Benedict Cumberbatch is in the running for “The Power of the Dog,” while Stephen Graham earned his first BAFTA nomination in a film (he has been nominated four times previously for BAFTA TV Awards) for his breakout performance. like a harassed chef in “Boiling Point.” Other nominees include Adeel Akhtar (“Ali & Ava”), Mahershala Ali (“Swan Song”) and Leonardo DiCaprio (“Don’t Look Up”), while Will Smith earned his first BAFTA nomination for portraying Richard Williams. , the formidable father and manager of tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams, in “King Richard.”

Denzel Washington was left out of the best actor nomination, whose performance as Macbeth opposite Frances McDormand in “Macbeth’s Tragedy” failed to earn the actor’s first BAFTA nomination.

In the supporting actress race, nominees include Caitríona Balfe (“Belfast”), Jessie Buckley (“The Lost Daughter”), Ariana Debose (“West Side Story”), Ann Dowd (“Mass”), Aunjanue Ellis (“King Richard”) and Ruth Negga (“Passing”).

Meanwhile, all of the nominated supporting actors are BAFTA rookies. The group includes: Mike Faist (“West Side Story”), Ciarán Hinds (“Belfast”), Troy Kotsur (“Coda”), Woody Norman (“C’mon C’mon”), Jesse Plemons (“The Power of the dog”) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (“The power of the dog”).

The nominations were revealed by presenter AJ Odudu and Tom Allen on Thursday at the renovated BAFTA building in London.

This year’s awards span 48 films, just shy of 2021’s 50 titles. In the acting categories, 19 of the 24 nominees receive their first BAFTA nominations. Meanwhile, in the directing category, there is an even split between female and male directors, slightly less than last year, when four of the six directors were women. In general, there is an increase in the number of directors nominated in total in all categories, up to 12 compared to eight in 2021.

BAFTA says the total number of women nominees has risen to 70, which is the highest in the last five years (when reporting for the organization began).
