British Academy Film Awards


BBC1, today, 7pm

It’s been described as the most diverse list of nominees ever produced by Bafta. However, there is one notable absentee – Viola Davis’ stunning performanc­e in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is missing, although the film is represente­d via a posthumous nod for her co-star Chadwick Boseman.

Of the six best director nominees, an unpreceden­ted four are female – including Nomadland’s Chloe Zhao (above) and Rocks’ Sarah Gavron, whose films have garnered the most nods with seven each. Somebody else expected to do well is the unstoppabl­e David Attenborou­gh, whose programme A Life On Our Planet is up for best doc.
