Very intrigued to see what happens here with Olivia Colman. She is certainly in the top 3 at the Oscars for the win and if it was the acting branch deciding the nominees she’d be an absolute lock (they love her to death). However we have a jury here and this performance isn’t one that is particularly showy or loud. It’s no doubt an excellent performance and the dramatic weight of it, the fact it’s the only prominent one outside of Hopkins’ and the added poignancy of the role all play in her favour. However I keep thinking back to how with the jury system with the BAFTA TV awards she was snubbed for a similarly subtle performance (although she has more to do in The Father than she did in The Crown). So I wonder if BAFTA juries are either fatigued by Colman and feel that she’s crossed over from the “seasoned homegrown dramatic performer” to the “world renowned dramatic actress” stage of her career for if the bar has been raised higher for her. That Supporting Actress category in itself is interesting.

I have to say though, they really did Carey dirty. They clearly like the Dig and love PYM and even after that they don’t nominate her?!! Very snobbish of them to do so.March 9, 2021 at 6:48 am #1204098529
People wanted diversity, then they get a diverse range of films and complain.March 9, 2021 at 6:50 am #1204098552

At the beginning when I was seeing all the love for The Dig I told myself “ok, it’s a done deal for Carey”.
They made some crazy choices but at least we have a thrilling month and an half ahead of us, not just a boring wait.

Hi everyone this is my first post here after lurking for a while.
I think that it is a bit strange to see notable snubs such as Mulligan, Davis, Colman etc. Especially after their respective films got nominations elsewhere. However, Im thinking that perhaps the BAFTA jury thought that these performances are likely to be nominated by the Oscars anyway, so they want to shine a light on more independent, lesser seen performances that may otherwise not recieve any recognition, which I think can only be a good thing 🙂March 9, 2021 at 6:51 am #1204098565
Carey’s fans have been a little too annoying for some time. For that reason alone, I don’t mind her missing at BAFTA.March 9, 2021 at 6:52 am #1204098575
I hope the BAFTA nominations look like this every year.March 9, 2021 at 6:53 am #1204098595
Going over the BAFTA nominations, there are so many films I need to see:
Calm with Horses
I’ll search HBO Max, Amazon Prime, Netflix and Hulu to see if any of these are streaming.
The ‘made me smile’ nomination: Dominique Fishback
The ‘disappointing no show’ nomination: Delroy Lindo – especially since there were six nominees in Best Actor
The ‘scratching my head’ nominations: No Carey Mulligan, Viola Davis, Olivia Colman and Jodie Foster (especially since ‘The Mauritanian’ did pretty well)March 9, 2021 at 6:54 am #1204098600
People wanted diversity, then they get a diverse range of films and complain.
It’s because very few people saw those films they nominated. Not saying they are bad films. People already formed their biases with the bigger films. The jury, on the other hand, had a completely different taste and access to smaller films.
Best Actress: Carey Mulligan
Best Actor: Riz Ahmed
Best Supporting Actor: LaKeith Stanfield
Best Supporting Actress: Maria BakalovaMarch 9, 2021 at 6:54 am #1204098605
I’m gonna wait for the Oscar nominations…………..If Andra Day is nominated then I really think she’s gonna win, either her or Viola Davis. I think Viola’s got SAG. A POC will HISTORICALLY win Best Actress at BAFTA’s and if this happens then a POC will win Oscars and it’s gonna be either Andra or Viola.March 9, 2021 at 6:55 am #1204098612
What this does say is that The Mauritanian is definitely getting an Oscar nomination.
The general membership still vote for Best Film in the nominations stage as they always have done and only once since 2010 has a film nominated by the general membership in Best Film, been shut out completely at the Oscars.
