BAFTA Film Awards Longlists Unveiled: ‘All Quiet on the Western Front,’ ‘Banshees of Inisherin’ & ‘Everything Everywhere’ Lead Pack


The BAFTA Film Awards have unveiled this year’s longlists for 24 categories, and in the lead are “All Quiet on the Western Front” and “The Banshees of Inisherin.”

Netflix’s wartime drama leads with 15 longlist nods, while Searchlight Pictures’ “Banshees” follows with 14. Meanwhile, A24’s “Everything Everywhere All at Once” and Warner Bros.’ “Elvis” have 12 longlist mentions apiece while A24’s British sensation “Aftersun,” Paramount Pictures’ “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Babylon” and Focus Features’ “Tár” all have eight nods.

The longlists are based on votes from the Round 1 period, which ended on Dec. 30. These films will now all advance to the nominating stage of voting, which will run from Friday (Jan. 6) to Jan. 13.

All eyes will be on BAFTA for clues around which films have the support of the Academy’s European voting bloc. In recent years, the sizeable contingent of English, French and other continental members have swayed the nominations and eventual victors at the Oscar ceremonies (see Anthony Hopkins winning best actor over presumed front-runner Chadwick Boseman in 2021).

This year’s longlists already have their share of surprises. Take, for instance, the glaring absence of James Cameron’s “Avatar: The Way of Water” (Disney) in both the best film and director lists. Same goes, too, for Damien Chazelle’s “Babylon,” which didn’t make the best film or director lists, despite receiving eight nods across other categories. Similarly, Andrew Dominik’s “Blonde” (Netflix) received longlist inclusions only for Ana de Armas in best actress, as well as make-up and hair.

Elsewhere, in the supporting actress category longlist, both Jessie Buckley and Claire Foy were shut out entirely for “Women Talking” (MGM/United Artists Releasing), with only Ben Whishaw picking up a best supporting actor nod for his role in the Sarah Polley film.

The final BAFTA nominations will be announced on Jan. 19, in a live event and global livestream hosted by actors Hayley Attwell and Toheeb Jimoh. The awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, Feb. 19, at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall — a shift from the awards’ usual home of Royal Albert Hall.
