BAFTA Film Awards 2024

Watch

The BAFTA film awards’ 2024 nominations were revealed on a YouTube live stream today (18 January 2024) at midday. The stream was hosted by former EE Rising Star Award nominees Naomi Ackie and Kingsley Ben-Adir from the arts charity’s HQ at 195 Piccadilly, London. Tune in below (it is 10 minutes long, and runs through the nominees for the 12 headline awards).

When BAFTA revealed the longlist for its 2024 film awards, Barbie, Oppenheimer and Killers of the Flower Moon were clear leaders of the pack, with 15 mentions each across 24 categories. Poor Things was hot on their heels with 14 recommendations, while Maestro and Saltburn have bagged 12 and All of Us Strangers and The Zone of Interest scooped up 10.

But now the nominations are in, we know the real stars of the show. Do we have a Barbenheimer battle on our hands? It seems not. Oppenheimer leads the nominations with 13, while Barbie lags behind with only five. Meanwhile, Poor Things has secured 11 nominations from its 14 longlists, while The Killers of the Flower Moon has secured nine. One stand-out film is The Zone of Interest, which has secured nine nominations from its 10 longlists. Impressive.

Outstanding British Contribution To Cinema

One winner we already know is June Givanni, who will receive BAFTA’s Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema award during the ceremony on 18 February.

June, who is a pioneering film curator, writer and programmer of African and African diaspora cinema, and the founder of The June Givanni PanAfrican Archive, said: ‘I was shocked and am honoured to receive such recognition from BAFTA for work that I have been privileged to be able to do with some of the most inspired and inspiring people in the world of cinema generally and Pan African cinema and culture in particular; especially with the energies of the younger generation of thinkers, curators and artists who bring dynamic energies to working with, and discovering, the archives of the moving image from a pre-digital age. We are also grateful for the support of the Freelands Foundation who have given us some crucial Space to Dream. Thank-you.’

Who Is Presenting?

David Tennant has been announced as the presenter of the 2024 BAFTA film awards, taking over from Saltburn’s Richard E Grant and Bake Off’s Alison Hammond who presented as a duo in 2023. It’s the first time Tennant has presented the prestigious award ceremony – and he’s clearly pleased with the news.

‘I am delighted to have been asked to host the EE BAFTA Film Awards and help celebrate the very best of this year’s films and the many brilliant people who bring them to life,’ Tennant said.

‘We are over the moon that David Tennant will be our host for the 2024 EE BAFTA Film Awards,’ added Jane Millichip, CEO of BAFTA. ‘He is deservedly beloved by British and international audiences, alike. His warmth, charm and mischievous wit will make it a must-watch show next month for our guests at the Royal Festival Hall and the millions of people watching at home.’
