After a big sweep run in TV BAFTAs and a Film Actress win for The Favourite, in 2021, the jury didn’t choose her for The Father, then they did the top2 rule for 2022 and again Colman missed, how is that possible ? Is the British actress a flash in the bottle for Film BAFTAs Awards or she will rebound with BAFTAs in the future ?
Is Searchlight distributed-Empire of Light gonna reverse this trend ?

The jury is probably choosing to highlight other local talent and minorities due to Colman already being thriving and being recognized for her work plenty. She’ll be back for Empire of Light I bet.

She’s booking gigs and I would say even the Great Expectations series probably wouldn’t have gotten greenlit without her (they just did a recent one not too long ago). Her profile is quite different from 3 years ago but she still won LFCC this year beating Scanlan, Stewart and Cruz so she still has Brit support.
Anyway since film BAFTA snubbed her for Tyrannosaur when she was the most deserving to WIN says more about them than her. They will tinker with the rules again next year so I wouldn’t even be surprised if she misses again even for a Mendes/ Deakins film.
Her Emmy win last year seems to suggest she may not need BAFTA that much 🙂
Also the wording of the thread title is so strange – Olivia didn’t do anything to fall off anything??ReplyCopy URL

If anything it’s a good thing for Olivia. Everyone know she is terrific and her career is skyrocketing. Too much adulation might only add to a sense of fatigue.ReplyCopy URL

She’s been one of the most Oscar-nominated … people in the last four years, I think? Maybe the BAFTAs liked her better when she was their star.

That could genuinely be a factor. Could be a (ridiculous) kind of notion that she’s sold out to Hollywood. Same happened with Kristin Chenoweth around the time of Bewitched through to Pushing Daisies.ReplyCopy URL

Olivia Colman remains one of the most respected actors in the UK today and has helped multiple independent productions from newcomers and rising stars in the industry gain funding with her name.
The BAFTA TV and film juries favour performers who are underdogs (except for in a few cases where an actor is giving one of the most critically acclaimed performances of the year but even then those types of performances aren’t immune from snubs). Olivia Colman a decade ago was an underrated character actor and now is a Hollywood A lister so the bar is higher for her. Gillian Anderson has delivered some of the most critically acclaimed and celebrated performances on British television this century and has not been nominated since 2011 for similar reasons.ReplyCopy URL

I’ve like BAFTA tends to turn their nose up a bit at shows once they become big hits in the US (look at Downton never doing very well, plus The Crown, even Fleabag lost Best Comedy) and so I imagine this might come about with actors as well. They kind of like to support their own talent. Just a thought.ReplyCopy URL

But still awarded the MVP of the season (ironically, also the underappreciated underdog).
