Bafta Awards 2022: The Stars Are Getting Ready For The In-Person Ceremony

The Bafta Film Awards will be performed afterward, indicating a return to an in-person celebration with a big crowd.

Last year’s program was short, with many participants attending via Zoom owing to Covid-19 restrictions.

This year, though, the superstars will return to the Royal Albert Hall for an event hosted by comedy actress Rebel Wilson.

The saga of science fiction Dune is the most nominated film, followed by The Power of the Dog, a gripping western, and Sir Kenneth Branagh’s autobiographical Belfast.

In Los Angeles, the Bafta Film Awards are hosted on the same day as the Critics’ Choice Awards. Stars that were considered for both had to pick between the two celebrations.

Although the Critics’ Choice Awards are not as famous as the Baftas, their position may offer them a more desirable alternative for nominees based in the United States.

Bafta Film Awards: The top nominees

  • Dune – 11
  • The Power of the Dog – 8
  • Belfast – 6
  • Licorice Pizza – 5
  • No Time to Die – 5
  • West Side Story – 5

Dune gained prizes for best film and technical disciplines like cinematography, visual effects, costume design, and make-up and hair.

Belfast, Leonardo DiCaprio’s disaster satire Don’t Look Up, and Licorice Pizza, a coming-of-age comedy-drama, is the other most excellent movie nominees.

Best film, best director for Jane Campion, and best actor for Benedict Cumberbatch are nominations for The Power of the Dog.

The British actor will challenge for the leading actor award against DiCaprio and Will Smith’s King Richard and another Brit, Stephen Graham, who is nominated for his performance as a high-pressure chef in Boiling Point.

Lady Gaga of House of Gucci, fellow musician Alana Haim, Tessa Thompson for Passing, and Emilia Jones, daughter of Welsh TV broadcaster Aled, are among the best actress nominations.

Joanna Scanlan is also nominated for After Love, a film about a 60-year-old Muslim switch who experiences an identity crisis after her husband suddenly dies.

Woody Norman, an 11-year-old British teenager, won best supporting actor for C’mon C’mon, a film about a radio host (Joaquin Phoenix) who takes his enthusiastic nephew on a road trip.

Ciaran Hinds for Belfast and Jesse Plemons, and Kodi Smit-McPhee for The Power of the Dog are on the list.

Jessie Buckley, who performed a younger version of Olivia Colman’s character in The Lost Daughter, is considered for best-supporting actress alongside Aunjanue Ellis from King Richard, Catriona Balfe from Belfast, Ariana DeBose from West Side Story, and Ruth Negga from Passing.

Colman, Kristen Stewart, who portrayed Princess Diana in Spencer, and Sir Kenneth, who has a scripting nomination but did not qualify for best director, are standouts from the nominees.

After last year’s champion, Noel Clarke, was accused of sexual harassment by many women following his win, there will be no Fellowship or other lifetime achievement award this year.

Clarke acknowledged “deep regret” for some of his behaviors but rejected sexual misbehavior “vehemently.”

Like last year’s, the Bafta nominations list is out of sync with the reality of awards season, especially the significant event, the Academy Awards.

Many Oscar favorites did not make the British Academy’s shortlists, but a few unusual films and actors succeeded.

The Baftas are traditionally seen as a predictor of who will win the Academy Awards, which will be placed at the end of March.

However, there have been fewer overlaps in recent years than in past years. For example, this year, no one nominated for best actress at the Oscars is also nominated for the Baftas.
