2024 BAFTA Film Award Nominations

Reading time: 5 minutes and 3 seconds

Today, BAFTA announced the nominees for their 2024 Film Awards.  

The following are nominated in the Director category: Andrew Haigh for All of Us Strangers, Justine Triet for Anatomy of a Fall, Alexander Payne for The Holdovers, Bradley Cooper for Maestro, Christopher Nolan for Oppenheimer, and Jonathan Glazer for The Zone of Interest

Elsewhere, directors Molly Manning Walker (How to Have Sex), Lisa Selby, Rebecca Lloyd-Evans and Alex Fry (Blue Bag Life), Ella Glendining (Is There Anybody Out There), and Savanah Leaf (Earth Mama) were recognised in the Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer category. 

Congratulations to all of these directors, and to our members whose brilliant work was nominated across all of the categories. 

We’re very encouraged to see so many women directors nominated in the Outstanding Debut category, and to see the nominations celebrate a diverse range of stories as a whole. 

However, it is really disappointing to see only one woman and no directors of colour in the Director category. The BAFTA 2020 Review of their nominations and voting processes put in place a system that ensures contributions from a diverse range of directors are recognised in the longlists, and BAFTA are diversifying their membership, but we often see that the resulting nominations list doesn’t reflect that
