    I know it’s very early, but I’m starting to believe Zahra Amir Ebrahimi could be a likely jury pick and potential threat to win for Best Actress.

    Holy Spider is playing in October at my local independent cinema for a special screening, so I’m guessing will have similar releases nationwide before a wide release (so it should be eligible?)

    Although the story isn’t based on recent events in Iran, the murder of Mahsa Amini isn’t going away on social media (as it should) and I’m also reading another woman has been killed since her death by security forces there. These events seem to be the tip of the iceberg of what has been happening in Iran for years, Holy Spider therefore could be seen as a timely and needed film.

    Politics aside, there is also recent precedent for the Cannes winner to be nominated at BAFTA. I’m hoping Zahra makes some noise not only to shine a light on the horrific events but also I don’t think an Iranian actor has been nominated by BAFTA before?

    FYC:

    Zar Amir Ebrahimi - Holy Spider (Best Actress)
    Ana de Armas, Julianne Nicholson - Blonde (Best Actress, Supporting Actress)
    Samantha Morton - She Said (Best Supporting Actress)
    Kerry Condon - The Banshees of Inisherin (Best Supporting Actress)

    I can’t wait to see Holy Spider and Zahra Amir Ebrahimi getting nominated and winning would be amazing. But I think BAFTA will want to influence the race more this season after sitting on the bench last time. Gosh, we really don’t know how lucky we were to get a winner like Joanna Scanlan. I hope Zahra gets a nom at least.

    I wonder if Living can pull a The Mauritanian/Daniel Blake and get Best Film.

    Anything is possible at BAFTA and I don’t think The Fabelmans is a slam dunk to win BF. They had no problem snubbing a big contender like WSS last season so I do wonder how much they will love The Fabelmans. Maybe they will want to go for something more socially relevant like WT. I can also see them really falling for Banshees.

    There is no official rule as far as I’m aware (two years ago there were 4 women nominated and 2 men).

    There is an equal distribution of male and female directors long-listed though with the 5 male directors and 5 female directors with the most votes as well as 3 jury picks (6 overall) making the cut there.

    Sensing that the Scottish Aftersun will make a splash here. Have only heard overwhelmingly positive things (91 on MC).

    Aftersun does indeed seem to have a lot of strong critical pre-hype (along with The Banshees of Inisherin it was one of the first films to also sell out this year at LFF). I think what would help it is if it manages to have a strong BIFA showing like After Love and Boiling Point did because it’s got quite a strange strategic release date (it’s coming out a couple of weeks after BIFA nominations come out). I think if your film is readily available for people to watch after it has been showered with smaller industry and critical accolades it’s much easier to sustain hype and get eyeballs on your work. I think part of what helped those two aforementioned films last year on the long-list is that people could see them as they were voting whilst the same couldn’t be said for The Souvenir : Part II or Ali and Ava (both of which came out in the UK after the actual BAFTA nominations were announced).

    Speaking of independent features with Paul Mescal in them I’m curious to see what happens with God’s Creatures. It currently hasn’t got a British (or rather surprising even an Irish) distributor but the subject matter is quite socially poignant and Emily Watson’s performance received flat out raves so if it can manage to build eyeballs I wonder if she could be one of our British indie acting contenders this year. She feels like someone the London film critics could go for in particular.
