The Joker dominates with 11 BAFTA Award nominations
"The Joker," a dark drama about one of the most famous comic book villains, has the most, as many as 11 nominations for this year's BAFTA.
Ten nominations feature Netflix's Martin Scorsese's Irishman and Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which is also this year's Golden Globe winner for Best Comedy.

They are followed by the 1917 war drama, which has nine nominations but is also the winner of the Golden Globes for Best Drama and directed by Sam Mendes.

These four films will compete with South Korean director Bong Joon-ho's "Parasite" for the grand prize.

Joaquin Phoenix, highly praised for his role as Joker, was nominated for Best Actor, in competition with Leonard DiCaprio for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood", Adam Driver for "Marriage Story", Taron Egerton Rocketman and Jonathan Pryce, nominated for the role of Francis in "Two" pope ".

However, as soon as BAFTA announced nominations in the main categories, criticism for the dominance of white men in the cast and men in the directorial category began.

Scarlett Johansson (The Marriage Story), Saoirse Ronan for the latest adaptation of "Little Women", Charlize Theron (They're Bombs), Jessie Buckley (The Wild Rose) and Renee Zellweger (Judy) have been nominated for Best Actresses.

Johansson has also been nominated for Best Supporting Actress (Jojo Rabbit), in the category where Laura Dern, Florence Pugh and the double-nominated Margot Robbie will nominate her (They Are Bombs and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood).

Al Pacino and Joe Pesci were nominated for Best Actor for "Irishman", Tom Hanks for "Beautiful Neighborhood Day", Anthony Hopkins for "Benedict" for "Two Pope" and Brad Pitt for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood".

When asked that acting categories "appear very white," BAFTA chief executive Amanda Berry told the BBC that she thought so when she first looked at the list of nominees.

"But it's not disrespectful to anyone. The list is incredibly strong," she added.

The awards ceremony is scheduled for early February.
