Although BAFTA announced its nominations today, with 'Joker' racking up 11 nominations and '1917' scoring nine, BAFTA themselves have come out against the nominations.

In a statement delivered to media earlier today, BAFTA CEO Amanda Berry said that the "lack of diversity in today’s nominations is hugely disappointing to see."

"Our year round activity has many strands that focus on diversity. It’s clear there is much more to be done and we plan to double down on our efforts to affect real change and to continue to support, and encourage the industry on the urgency of doing so much more," Berry continued.

So, who was nominated for what? As mentioned, 'Joker' was nominated across 11 categories, including Best Film, Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Score for Hildur Guđnadóttir. '1917' also saw nominations for Best Film, Best Director for Sam Mendes, and Best Cinematography for Roger Deakins.

Understandably, this isn't the first time BAFTA has come in for serious criticism over a lack of diversity in its nominations. In fact, a 2018 report by Pearn Kandola found that 94% of all BAFTA film award nominees have been white. The hashtag #BAFTAsSoWhite trended across the UK today as well.

Here's the list of nominees from the major categories.
