Earlier today BAFTA announced the nominations for the 2024 EE BAFTA Film Awards, celebrating the very best in film over the past year. ILM contributed to four of the five films recognized with a nomination in the Special Visual Effects category. 

Jay Cooper, Charmaine Chan, Ian Comley, and Jonathan Bullock were each nominated for Gareth Edward’s sci-fi thriller The Creator while Alex Wuttke, Simone Coco, Jeff Sutherland, and Neil Corbould received nominations for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One. ILM also contributed effects work to Ridley Scott’s historical epic Napoleon and James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. 

Anna Higgs, Chair of BAFTA Film Committee said, “It has been an outstanding year for filmmaking as represented by the 38 films nominated today. They showcase ambitious, creative, and hugely impressive voices from independent British debuts to global blockbusters.  From complex moral issues through to joyful journeys of self-discovery, they all ultimately explore human connection.  Which is why we go to the cinema: to be transported into new worlds, to laugh, cry, to be entertained and to be challenged.  The films nominated today deliver all that and more – we hope people up and down the country, and around the world, are inspired to watch them. Congratulations to all the nominees.”

The winners will be announced on 18 February from the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall in London, as part of an unmissable celebration of film hosted by David Tennant.     

The EE BAFTA Film Awards will be broadcast on BBC One and iPlayer in the UK, on BritBox International in the USA, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and South Africa, as well as BBC Australia in Australia and New Zealand, NOVA Bulgaria, NOVA Greece, Turner Spain, and Canal Plus. With more territories to be confirmed.

The EE BAFTA Film Awards voting takes place over three rounds: Longlisting, Nominations, and Winners, by BAFTA’s global voting membership, comprising over 7,800 creatives and film industry practitioners
