Apple TV+ originals have earned more than 200 wins and 900 nominations since it debuted two years ago. About this year’s BAFTA, Variety notes:
This year’s awards span 48 films, just slightly down from the 50 titles in 2021. In the performance categories, 19 of 24 nominees are receiving their first BAFTA film nomination. Meanwhile, in the directing category, there’s an equal split between female and male directors — slightly down from last year, when four of six directors were female. Overall, there’s an increase in the number of female directors nominated in total across all categories, up to 12 versus the eight in 2021.
BAFTA says the number of female nominees in total has risen to 70, which is the highest in the last five years (when reporting began for the org).
BAFTA’s organizers plan for an in-person event on March 13 at Royal Albert Hall, where Rebel Wilson will make her hosting debut.
