Netflix’s All Quiet On The Western Front leads 2023 Bafta nominations

Netflix’s anti-war epic All Quiet On The Western Front leads the pack for this year’s Bafta film awards with 14 nominations. The film, directed by German filmmaker Edward

Berger and based on the 1929 novel of the same name by Erich Maria Remarque, has received nods for top gongs including best film, best director and best film not in the English

language. Its string of nominations means it equals 2000’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon as the film not in the English language with the most nominations in Bafta’s

history. Oscar-winner Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees Of Inisherin and Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert’s Everything Everywhere All At Once follow closely behind with ten

nominations each. Both films have also received nods for best film, with Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis and Todd Field’s Tar rounding off the five-strong list. The Banshees Of

Inisherin has also earned Irish actor Colin Farrell his first Bafta film nomination in the leading actor category, for his role in the black comedy-drama in which he stars

alongside Brendan Gleeson. The film, set on a remote island off the coast of Ireland, sees Farrell’s character devastated when his friend, played by Gleeson, puts an end to

their life-long friendship. Its other nominations include outstanding British film, best director, best original screenplay and best supporting actor for Irish stars Gleeson

and Barry Keoghan as well as best supporting actress for Irish actress Kerry Condon.
