BAFTA unveils its longlist of films set for possible nominations

The British Academy has unveiled its longlist of films riding on to merit nominations for the 2021 BAFTA ceremony.

The provided list does not a guarantee any film a definite nomination, but rather places it in good company for a possible mention in the yet-to-be stamped final list of nominees.

Publication of the longlist of films, follows the heavy backlash the Academy faced last year regarding its voting procedure that does not speak well of its diversity. Therefore, the longlist reveal seeks to address such allegation presented before the Academy.

“The longlists announced today reflect some of the key changes we’ve already begun to implement as part of our ongoing review,” said BAFTA film committee chair Marc Samuelson.

“A big thank you goes to our membership for embracing these changes so positively and quickly especially during this challenging time. I hope today’s longlists shows you that we remain committed to change in all aspects of the BAFTA’s awards on an ongoing basis.”

While it’s uncertain how the main event will take place amidst COVID-19, it’s still slated to happen on April 11.

Nominees will be announced on March 9.

‘Nomadland’, ‘Ammonite’, ‘Promising Young Woman’ dominate the longlist provided below.
