The British Academy Film Awards Announces 2016 Nominees

The BAFTAs – The British Academy Film Awards (essentially the British Oscars) – announced its 2016 nominations this morning. BAFTA chair Anne Morrison was joined by Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Stephen Fry to announce the nominations, which follow below.

Not much African diaspora representation as you’d probably expect. Of note, Idris Elba is nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for his performance in “Beasts of No Nation”; Abderrahmane Sissako’s “Timbuktu” is nominated in the Best Film Not in the English Language category; and Debbie Tucker Green is nominated in the Outstanding Debut by a British Writer or Producer for her feature film writing/directorial debut “Second Coming” which stars Idris Elba.

The awards will take place on Feb 14 and will be held for the tenth year at London’s Royal Opera House.
