The 75th British Academy Film Awards (aka EE Baftas) nominations were announced today with Denis Villeneuve‘s epic Dune leading the pack with 11 nominations.  Along side them at the top is Jane Campion‘s The Power Of The Dog with 8 nominations.

The 2022 awards marks Bafta’s second ceremony after their  2020 diversity review. A census that aimed  bring balance to race, gender equality to their membership and the what they vote on. 2021 Those big changes came into effect delivering , matching the Oscars in their much needed changes.  Like every year, The EE Baftas are the precursor to The Oscars, will the nominations reflect what we can expect?

Compared to 2020, 2021 with it’s cinema closures  it was a better year with so many great films on the big screen again. Behind the two leading nominees the leading British films Belfast has 6 and  No Time To Die (5) leading the way as the most nominated British films. West Side Story, Licorice Pizza also on 5.

As for the best director nominees, it’s an equal split between male and female filmmakers. In the Supporting Actor category are first time nominees.  They include Ariana DeBose (West Side Story), Alana Haim (Licorice Pizza); Woody Norman (C’mon C’mon), with Woody, at age 11 years old, is our youngest nominee this year.
