Tuesday 9th March 2021, UK: TIME’S UP UK welcomes and celebrates BAFTAs film nominations released today.

Having done an extensive review of their voting processes, the range of films on the BAFTA nomination list is a testament to how effective that review has been, with their members now watching the true wealth of films being created in the UK and globally.

Dame Heather Rabbatts, TIME’S UP UK says; “We are particularly pleased to see that four out of the six directors nominated in the Director category are women, and that of those, one is also nominated for Film Not in the English Language, reflecting the diversity within these women. TIME’S UP UK also particularly notes the range of diverse talent and people of colour right across the BAFTA categories”.

Globally TIME’S UP has recently challenged the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to improve diversity in its membership and to bolster the credibility of the Golden Globes.

Dame Heather continues; “TIME’S UP campaigns for change across the industry and these BAFTA nominations demonstrate how change can be achieved in a relatively short time, by us all working together”.
