I used to be going forwards and backwards about masking the BAFTA nominations, which have been launched early this morning, and in the long run I made a decision I did need to focus on them as a result of there are some WTFs on this listing and a few notable conversations we have to have. Initially, the entire BAFTA nominations went to white, male administrators. No Barry Jenkins, director of Moonlight (though Moonlight was nominated for Greatest Image and Jenkins was nominated as screenwriter). All however one of many screenwriting nominations (tailored and authentic) went to dudes too, and the one girl who was nominated was a co-writer with a dude. This can be a HUGE drawback, guys. And it’s not only a drawback in Hollywood or within the British movie trade. There are points with the actor nominations too. You may see the complete listing of BAFTA noms right here, and listed here are the massive ones:

Whereas I’m completely happy to see Dev, Viola, Naomie and Mahershala’s names on right here, are you able to see who’s lacking? Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton. At first I believed “possibly Loving was ineligible due to when it was launched.” However Ruth was nominated for the Rising Star Award for her efficiency, so the movie was eligible. The BAFTAs simply selected to appoint Emily Blunt slightly than Ruth Negga. The Display screen Actors Guild made the identical alternative. And I actually don’t perceive it – The Lady on the Prepare got here and went with little fanfare. In the meantime, Ruth’s efficiency (to not point out Joel’s) has been on each “better of” listing. So right here’s my query: is there an actual risk that Emily Blunt goes to get nominated for an Oscar this yr?

Additionally: no Deadpool, which isn’t shocking. No Denzel Washington for Fences. No Isabella Huppert for Elle. No Michael Shannon. Why is Aaron Taylor Johnson getting all of this love? It’s so bizarre!
