BAFTA suspends 'Bohemian Rhapsody' director Bryan Singer nomination

  • BAFTA Takes Singer's Name Off 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Nom

In 2016, Bafta announced that, in order to qualify in two of its award categories - outstanding British film, and outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer - films must conform to the BFI's Diversity Standards.

At the same time, Bafta announced changes in its membership process created to increase the percentage of women and ethnic minorities, after an anonymous membership survey in January 2016 found that 41% were female, 13% minority ethnic, and that the median age was 52.

Yorgos Lanthimos' film received 12 nominations for the United Kingdom equivalent of the Oscars, including best film, best director and best actress, for Olivia Colman.

After Bryan Singer, the director of Bohemian Rhapsody, was this week removed from his movie's nomination for best British film (due to allegations of sexual abuse, which he denies), questions have been raised about the viability of the Queen biopic across the rest of the season.

"BAFTA considers the alleged behaviour completely unacceptable and incompatible with its values", reads a statement from the organisation. King and McCarten remain nominated, while Bohemian Rhapsody will also contest a further six BAFTA Awards. "This has led to Mr Singer's suspended nomination", BAFTA said.

He knows he can expect a similar atmosphere because thousands of his British fans would likely make the trip to NY for the fight. The 30-year-old has won 11 of his last 12 bouts by knockout, including a fourth-round KO of Bogdan Dinu in November.

Singer denies the allegations, calling them a "homophobic smear". "The suspension of his nomination will therefore remain in place until the outcome of the allegations has been resolved".

Singer did not direct all of the film after disputes about his absences from the set.

The statement said that Bohemian Rhapsody remains nominated in the outstanding British film category, and the other individuals named remain nominees.

The awards ceremony will take place in London on Sunday.
