BAFTA Awards Predictions 2024

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts, or BAFTA, has become a crucial indicator on which films and performances could garner support for the Academy Awards due to the huge overlap of voting members. Over the years, its influence on the Oscars has been undeniable, with many of its winners often helping to shape a narrative. After getting ignored by all the major guilds, last year’s German-language film “All Quiet on the Western Front” made a big showing before going on to nab nine Oscar nominations and winning four.

The longlists, which will be announced on Friday, Jan. 5, provide the first major clues, announcing the finalists in all their respective categories.

Each branch has its own set of rules for nominating and recognizing a film or performance.

What we look for on this list is if films presumed to be more “American-leaning” also appeal to the BAFTA members. How will they take to Greta Gerwig’s toy doll flick “Barbie” or Alexander Payne’s holiday film “The Holdovers?”
