BAFTA longlists: ‘All Quiet,’ ‘Banshees,’ ‘Elvis’ and ‘Everything Everywhere’ lead

In 2021 the BAFTA Awards upended its nominating system and brought back longlists in an effort to increase viewership of all the submitted films. The 2023 BAFTA Awards longlists were revealed on January 6. “All Quiet on the Western Front” earned a leading 15 mentions with “The Banshees of Inisherin” right behind at 14. “Elvis” and “Everything Everywhere All at Once” each reaped an even dozen. Four films merited eight mentions: “Aftersun,” “Babylon,” “Tár” and “Top Gun: Maverick.” Scroll down to see the semi-finalists for the 2023 BAFTA Awards nominations.

In the recently concluded round one (which ran from Dec. 9 to Dec. 30), academy members ranked their top 15 films; the 15 with the most votes overall were longlisted. Members also took part in voting in their respective chapters. In most categories, the top 10 vote getters make the cut. However for the directing and acting categories there is an an added step. For these five races, a jury drawn from the film committee will weigh in as well as detailed below.

The directing longlist has 16 contenders, divided evenly between men and women. The directors chapter popular vote determined five of each while the jury chose three men and three women from the next 10 ranked.

Each of the four acting longlists has 10 contenders; a lucky seven were determined by the acting chapter popular vote while the jury added three names. The top three vote getters in each category are guaranteed to be nominated. The other three nominees will be decided by juries comprised of about a dozen diverse voters drawn from a range of backgrounds.

Members are required to watch all the contenders on the longlists in round two, which kicks off off Jan. 6 and runs  until Jan. 13. They’ll rank their top five films to determine nominations, which will be announced on Jan. 19 (two days after Oscar nominations voting ends).

While there will only be five nominees for Best Picture, screenplays and craft categories, there will be six in each of the acting categories. There will also now be six nominees for Best Director and in an effort to address a lack in female representation, this longlist has 8 men and 8 women.

In round three the entire membership can vote for the winners in each category after watching all nominated films. This voting will run from Jan. 20 to Feb. 14. The 2023 BAFTA Awards take place on Feb. 19. The Oscars are three weeks later on March 12.

Until 2013, the entire BAFTA membership decided the nominees in a complicated two-part process that involved a lot of longlists with the general membership deciding the semi-finalists and the branches making the final determination of the nominees. This was replaced in 2013 by a system more akin to the Oscars where nominations were determined by each branch (except for Best Picture). The British academy made this change so that the BAFTAs could take place before final voting for the Oscars was over. Turns out they didn’t need to.
