Of the difficult times the awards and creative industries have had during the past 12 months - which saw a total shut-down of TV and film production across the world - BAFTA's Chief Executive Amanda Berry said: 'The last year has seen the Covid-19 pandemic impact everyone, and the film industry is no exception.

'I would like to thank all those who have supported us and enabled BAFTA to continue to celebrate the very best work in film, from our members who embraced the changes we made to the voting process to the distributors for ensuring that many more films were available for online viewing.

'Film has always held an essential place in our culture but I think we can all agree that it has been even more important during this time.

'I very much look forward to celebrating the incredible talent of all our nominees.'

In the past year, BAFTA undertook a wide-ranging Review, signalling the beginning of a significant cultural shift within the organisation.

The changes introduced for the Film Awards are the first phase in an ongoing process of levelling the playing field for all entered films.
