Nominations for the 2024 BAFTA Film Awards have been unveiled.

Chorley Bunce TV & Film Location Catering is following the BAFTA Film Awards with interest.  Leading the way this year is Christopher Nolan’s atomic biopic Oppenheimer, which snagged 13 noms, including best film, director, and adapted screenplay. Oppenheimer was one nomination away from equaling All Quiet on the Western Front’s record 2023 haul of 14 noms. Trailing Nolan is Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos, who clocked 11 nominations with his latest black comedy, Poor Things. Lanthimos’ haul also includes best film alongside outstanding British film and adapted screenplay for Tony McNamara. 

Chasing the leading two is Martin Scorsese’s Osage epic Killers Of The Flower, which clocked nine nominations. The 3-hour plus pic pops up in Best Film, Supporting Actor for Robert DeNiro, and Cinematography for Rodrigo Prieto. However, the film didn’t land noms in either best director or best actress (Lily Gladstone), where it had been longlisted and earmarked as a frontrunner. Jonathan Glazer’s breakout Cannes drama The Zone Of Interest also netted nine nominations, giving the British filmmaker his best-ever BAFTAs haul. 

Other leading films include Anatomy of A Fall, The Holdovers, and Maestro, which all clocked seven noms. Andrew Haigh’s enigmatic drama All of Us Strangers landed six nods, and Greta Gerwig’s Barbie and Emerald Fennell’s Saltburn have five apiece. 

This year, 11 out of 23 nominees in the performance categories have received their first BAFTA nomination, including Sandra Hüller (Anatomy of a FallandThe Zone of Interest), Cillian Murphy (Oppenheimer), Fantasia Barrino and Danielle Brooks (The Color Purple), Colman Domingo (Rustin), Paul Giamatti, Da’Vine Joy Randolph and Dominic Sessa (The Holdovers), Jacob Elordi (Saltburn), Vivian Oparah (Rye Lane), and Teo Yoo (Past Lives). In other notable acting notes, Paul Mescal and Claire Foy are in their respective supporting categories for All Of Us Strangers, while awards season frontrunners Margot Robbie and Emma Stone fill out the best actress category. 

In best director, four of the six are first-time director nominees: Jonathan Glazer (The Zone of Interest), Andrew Haigh (All of Us Strangers), Alexander Payne(The Holdovers), and Justine Triet (Anatomy of a Fall). Triet is the sole woman in director. None of the director nominees are previous winners in this category.
