BAFTAs release longlists: Gangubai Kathiawadi gets no noms despite campaigning, RRR still has Best Foreign Film hopes

The BAFTA Film Awards have revealed their longlists in 24 categories, with the German film All Quiet on the Western Front and The Banshees of Inisherin leading the rest of the pack with 15 and 14 longlist nods respectively. SS Rajamouli’s RRR has scored one nomination for Film Not in the English Language. Shaunak Sen’s documentary All That Breathes has also been singled out. Meanwhile, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama Gangubai Kathiawadi which had been campaigning at the BAFTAs since last month has received no nominations.

The British Academy announced its longlist in new tweet with the caption, “The wait is over! Check out the longlist for the 2023 #EEBAFTAs (downwards pointing emoji) Who would you like to see nominated on Thursday 19th January?” The 76th edition is set to take place next month.

The lack of nominations for the Indian films is surprising seeing the support both RRR and Gangubai Kathiawadi, and its leading actor Alia Bhatt had received in the past couple of weeks. The BAFTAs are seen as a precursor to the Oscar nominations which will be revealed later this month on January 24, so it does increase the suspense whether any Indian films, especially RRR, will break through with a few nominations or not.

According to a report in Variety, the longlists are based on votes from the Round 1 period, which finished on December 30. Those named in the longlist today will advance to Round 2, which will end on January 13. The final nominations are going to be announced live on January 19 by actors Hayley Attwell and Toheeb Jimoh. The awards ceremony will be held on February 19, at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
