It’s the biggest night in the British film calendar and – this year – comes served with a dash of controversy, thanks to the exorcism of Bryan Singer’s name from the Bohemian Rhapsody nominations.
An all male directorial line up makes for a disheartening read but there’s relief in seeing recognition for Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here. Significant snubs this year, meanwhile, include Debora Granik’s Leave No Trace and Steve McQueen’s Widows.
Of those nominated, Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite leads the pack with twelve, while Bohemian Rhapsody, First Man, Roma and A Star is Born have seven apiece.
As previously announced, Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley will receive the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema Award and Raging Bull editor Thelma Schoonmaker will be honoured with the BAFTA Fellowship.
As for the winners, only time – and Joanna Lumley – will tell. But that’s not stopped us guessing.
