2021’S BAFTA CATEGORIES AND MORE NOMINEES
October 2020 | BBC
“The Bafta Film Awards will have more nominees next year in an attempt to increase the diversity of the stars and film-makers who are up for honours.
All four acting categories as well as the best director award will have six nominees, instead of the usual five.
Ten titles will be in contention for the outstanding British film award - four more than the customary six.

Meanwhile, no female film-makers were nominated for the best director prize for the seventh year running.
Organisers carried out a "detailed review" as a result, and said they would now also seek to "meaningfully target" 1,000 new voting members from under-represented groups.
The move, they said, was one in a series of steps "to ensure a more representative and inclusive membership that reflects today's British society".
