Earlier today Deadline‘s Pete Hammond offered a standout comment about the “crazy” BAFTAs and particularly their Best Film nominees. He reminded that this is a category not juried but voted on by the larger Academy, and “the contenders for the biggest award of the night are solidly white. The Father is about white people dealing with dementia; The Mauritanian is about white lawyers defending a suspected 9/11 terrorist; Nomadland is about white Americans dropping out of society and taking to the road; Promising Young Woman is about white thirtysomethings dealing with issues going back to school days; and The Trial of the Chicago 7 is about white lawyers defending and prosecuting six white (and one Black) males for causing a riot at the 1968 Democratic Convention.”
