This year, BAFTA did away with the long lists that preceded the final nominations and restructured the nomination process to be more like that of the Oscars. Winners were revealed on Feb. 10, right in the middle of Oscar voting. (Read full report here.)
All BAFTA members cast nomination ballots for Best Picture and the four performance prizes. Chapters (akin to the academy’s branches) determined the nominees for a slew of creative categories — Adapted Screenplay and Original Screenplay; Cinematography; Costume Design; Director; Editing; Make-Up & Hair; Original Music; Production Design; Sound; and Special Visual Effects.
The membership as a whole voted on the winners of all these races. Members could opt in to chapters and vote for the nominees and winners of the feature prizes for: Animation, British; Documentary; and Foreign-language.
