‘Banshees’ Leads with 14 Noms – Deadline

BAFTA has unveiled the longlists across all categories for its 2023 Film Awards, and Martin McDonagh’s tragicomedy The Banshees Of Inisherin and Netflix’s All Quiet on the Western Front lead. Scroll down for the full list.

All Quiet on the Western Front appears on the most lists (15), including Film Not In The English Language, Best Film, and Adapted Screenplay. Martin McDonagh’s impressive Banshees haul includes Best Director, Film, and Screenplay nods while Colin Farrell is up for Leading Actor and Brendan Gleeson, Barry Keoghan, and Kerry Condon were handed Best Supporting Actor and Actress longlist nods.

Charlotte Wells’ festival favourite Aftersun appears on eight lists, including Best Film, Director, and Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer. Other titles that are well represented today include Oliver Hermanus’s Living and Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis.

In notable snubs, James Cameron’s Avatar sequel The Way of Water did not make either the Best Film or Director longlists. The box office hit is absent from all major categories but shows strongly in craft categories, including Sound and Special Visual Effects. The original film picked up eight nominations including Best Film and Director.

British filmmaker Sam Mendes’s latest Empire Of Light, a paean to the movies, is also missing from several major longlists, including Best Film and Director. Awards favorite Olivia Colman also misses out on the Actress longlist with her leading role in the film. However, newcomer Micheal Ward is down for Supporting Actor, and the pic is on the list for Outstanding British Film.

In other notable acting notes, Ana de Armas is on the Leading Actress list for her role in Blonde and Brendan Fraser secured a space on the Leading Actor longlist for The Whale. Unlike previous years, there is a healthy mix of diversity in the acting categories with early nods for Naomi Ackie in I Wanna Dance With SomebodyViola Davis in The Woman KingMichelle Yeoh for Everything Everywhere All At Once, and Daniel Kaluuya for No.

These lists have been compiled via Round One of BAFTA’s voting. Round Two, which determines the nominations, opens today and closes on January 13, 2023. The EE Rising Star Award nominees will be announced on January 17.
