It’s that time in the movie calendar that we love to hate and hate to love… Yep, awards season is in full flow and, hot on the heels of the Golden Globes, the backslapping machine continues apace with the reveal of the nominees for the 2020 Bafta awards.
This year, Todd Phillips’ comic-book thriller Joker leads the pack with 11 nominations (including one for its Golden Globe-winning star, Joaquin Phoenix), while Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood follow closely behind with 10 nominations each. Sam Mendes’ one-shot war drama 1917 picked up nine nominations.
And, in a move that will probably irk the likes of Stephen Spielberg, streaming service Netflix scored a total of 20 nods, shared out between The Irishman, Marriage Story and The Two Popes. Elsewhere, Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite overcame the subtitle barrier to secure a nomination for Best Film.
However, Bafta has already faced something of a backlash for the lack of diversity among the nominees, especially in the acting categories. In particular, Golden Globe winner and The Farewell star Awkwafina was snubbed in the Best Actress category, although she is nominated for the public-voted Rising Star award. Elsewhere, Greta Gerwig lost out on a Best Director nod for Little Women thanks to another all-male field of nominations in that category, although she did pick up an Adapted Screenplay nod.
The winners will be revealed at the 2020 Bafta Film Awards ceremony, hosted by debut Film Awards presenter Graham Norton, on 2 February.
