Last week in an email to BAFTA voters, chief executive Amanda Berry called the lack of diversity in this year's nominees 'frustrating and deeply disappointing'.
This year's Baftas feature an all-white list of acting nominees and there are no female directors up for an award.
While Margot Robbie has received two nominations in the same category, it's been noted actors of colour have been overlooked completely.
The cinema chain Cineworld has withdrawn its support from BAFTA, following wins for the streaming movie Roma at this year's awards.
Joanna Lumley may be something of a national treasure, but whoever was writing her jokes as she presented last night’s BAFTAs truly and wholly let the side down. It seemed to imply that Hart’s downfall had something to do with Twitter.
Rami Malek has won the leading actor prize at the BAFTAs for Bohemian Rhapsody. Malek plays iconic British rocker Freddie Mercury in the film, which charts his life and pop career with Queen. Malek said: “This is truly extraordinary.
"I can only conclude that these people don’t really understand what was achieved by our team."
The accolades continue to roll in for 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and, by default, controversial director Bryan Singer.
Dave Jones and Hayley Squires in ‘I, Daniel Blake’, Eddie Redmayne in ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them’ and Viggo Mortensen in ‘Captain Fantastic’. This year’s BAFTA Film Award nomiantions have been announced and it’s packed with the big awards season contenders, including ‘Moonlight’, ‘Manchester By The Sea’ and, of course, the seemingly-unstoppable ‘La La Land’. BAFTA has always and will always, understandably, favour British films, so ‘I, Daniel Blake’ isn’t exactly a huge surprise.
