BAFTA Nominations 2023: Michelle Williams Snubbed, ‘All Quiet On The Western Front’ Dominates

The Oscars race is heating up! The 2023 BAFTA nominations were announced on Thursday, marking the latest milestone leading up to the Academy Awards in March.

Germany’s “All Quiet on the Western Front” remake dominated the list with 14 nods, including Best Film, Best Director and co-star Albrecht Schuch for Best Supporting Actor.

Established favorites “Everything Everywhere All At Once” and “The Banshees of Inisherin” tied for second with 10 nominations, with nods on the acting side for “Everything” stars Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and Jamie Lee Curtis, and “Banshees” ensemble Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan, all of whom have scored recognition throughout this year’s awards season.

Surprises included the omission of “The Fabelmans” star Michelle Williams, once considered a lock for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar list until both the SAG Awards and now BAFTA left her off their lineups. “Fabelmans” filmmaker Steven Spielberg, who won the Golden Globe earlier this month, was also shut out of contention for BAFTA’s Best Director awards.

Other performers considered Oscar frontrunners were included in the BAFTAs, from “Wakanda Forever” star Angela Bassett to “The Whale’s” Brendan Fraser and more.
