This year’s main change involves the six nominations for the Outstanding British Film category. As in previous years, BAFTA members of the relevant opt-in chapter – a minimum of 80 in number – will vote for the top 15 films and the top three will be automatically nominated. The final three nominations will be chosen by a jury from the remaining 12 films.
The EE British Academy Film Awards will take place on Sunday 8 February at The Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden and they will be broadcast on the BBC in the UK.
