Oppenheimer Leads the 2024 BAFTA Awards with Nominations in 13 Categories

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has announced its nominees for the 2024 BAFTA Awards with Christopher Nolan‘s Oppenheimer being nominated in 13 categories, including Best Film and Best Director. The awards gala and ceremony, which will be hosted by David (Doctor WhoTennant, will take place on Sunday, Feb. 18, from London’s Royal Festival Hall.

The other five Best Film nominees, whittled down from a longlist of 10 movies, are Justine Triet‘s Anatomy of a FallAlexander Payne‘s The Holdovers, Martin Scorsese‘s Killers of the Flower Moon, and Yorgos Lanthimos‘ Poor Things. Noticeably absent from the category is Greta Gerwig‘s Barbie, which was nominated for Original Screenplay with acting nominations for Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, as well as nominations for its Costumes and Production, a far cry from the love it’s received from other groups like the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards.

Noticeably missing from the lead actor category is Killers of the Flower Moon star Leonardo DiCaprio AND Lily Gladstone (the presumed frontrunner who did not win at the Critics Choice Awards), the latter replaced notably by The Color Purple actress, Fantasia Barrino. The Supporting Actor category continues to be all over the place with BAFTA not nominating EITHER Mark Ruffalo or Willem Dafoe for Poor Things, but giving Dominic Sessa a nomination for his role in The Holdover, Paul Mescal being nominated for the British All of Us Strangers, and Jacob Elordi for the similarly British Saltburn. All Of Us Strangers director Andrew Haigh was also nominated, while Scorsese was nowhere to be found, BAFTA showing less support for his film other than a nomination for Robert De Niro. (Killers wasn’t even included in the Adapted Screenplay category.)

The reason why BAFTA is notable is that there is a Venn Diagram of members thare are also Academy members, though these nominations were announced after Academy voting has closed, so they will have no impact. In recent years, there have been Oscar nominees that weren’t nominated for BAFTAs and BAFTA nominees that didn’t receive Oscar nominations, and one can expect this year to be similar. In other words, don’t expect Vivian Oparah of the British indie Rye Lane, which debuted at Sundance a year ago, to be among the Oscar nominees. Sorry, luv.

In total, 38 different films were nominated with a lot of variety among the nominees, to which BAFTA CEO Jane Millichip, said, “The 38 films nominated by BAFTA voters today span an extraordinary range of genres and stories. The field this year is incredibly strong. More films were entered, making the selection process particularly tough for our voting members. The films and talented people nominated represent some of the most talked about films of the year, the most critically acclaimed, and films yet to be released and discovered by audiences.”
