Edward Berger’s Netflix title secured nominations in all but three categories for which it was eligible including best film, director, supporting actor for Albrecht Schuch, adapted screenplay, film not in the English language, casting, and all eight technical categories.

It is the first film to receive 14 or more Bafta nods since The King’s Speech in 2011 and the only other foreign-language feature to ever receive as many nominations is Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, which went on to win four awards in 2001.

Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees Of Inisherin and Everything Everywhere All At Once by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert both scored 10 nominations, and Baz Luhrmann’s biopic Elvis secured nine.

Todd Field’s Tár received five nominations while AftersunThe BatmanGood Luck to You, Leo GrandeTop Gun: Maverick and The Whale each scored four.

Receiving three nominations apiece were BabylonEmpire of LightGuillermo del Toro’s PinocchioLiving and Triangle of Sadness.

First time nominees feature heavily this year, with 14 of the 24 nominees in the performance categories receiving their first Bafta Film nomination. They include Ana De Armas (Blonde); Angela Bassett (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever) Austin Butler (Elvis), Colin Farrell (The Banshees of Inisherin); Brendan Fraser (The Whale); Paul Mescal (Aftersun), and Ke Huy Quan (Everything Everywhere All At Once).

All six nominees for the outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer are women. However, all but one of the six nominees for best director are men, with a sole nod for US filmmaker Gina Prince-Bythewood for The Woman King. This is down from three in 2021 and four in 2020, bringing the total number of best director nominations for women to 15, compared to 229 for men.

Netflix leads the way among distributors with 21 due to All Quiet On The Western Front as well as BlondeGuillermo Del Toro’s PinocchioThe Good Nurse, The Swimmers and The Wonder.

International film platform Mubi secured six from Charlotte Wells’ British indie favourite Aftersun and Park Chan-Wook’s South Korea drama Decision To Leave, while Amazon just managed one nod for Santiago Mitre’s Argentina, 1985.

A total of 45 films were nominated (down from 48 in 2022), plus eight shorts.

The nominations were announced from Bafta’s headquarters in London by actors Hayley Atwell and Toheeb Jimoh. This year’s Bafta rising star nominees were announced last week.
