BAFTA 2022 unveils film awards longlists

Many film festivals and award ceremonies are shifting back to the virtual method due to the rising concerns caused by the rapid spread of the new variant of Covid-19. The BAFTA Film Awards, however, have pushed ahead with the decision to host a physical ceremony which is set to take place in March of this year.

The voting processes for nominating the most promising projects of 2021 have already begun, with BAFTA recently releasing the long list for all the films that made it past the first round. The second round of voting will begin soon which will determine the final nominations that will be in the running for the accolades.

For this year’s Best Film category, the films of many modern pioneers such as Wes Anderson, Joel Coen, Paul Thomas Anderson and Denis Villeneuve have made it onto the long list. Maggie Gyllenhaal has also made a big splash with her debut feature The Lost Daughter which is also in the race and has cited by many as one of the breakthroughs of 2021.

BAFTA’s selection for the foreign film category is much stronger, with Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car being the favourite to nab the award. However, things aren’t that simple since there are many other worthy contenders such as Joachim Trier’s The Worst Person in the World as well as Celine Sciamma’s latest film Petite Maman.

Check the full list of nominations below.
