Bafta 2022 nominations: The biggest surprises and surprises, from Olivia Colman to Andrew Garfield

BILLIONHere there are always surprises and surprises at awards ceremonies, but somehow this year Baftas completely confusing them. However, it can be a good thing. Since being criticized for spending so many years just recreating and predicting what the Oscars will do, Baftas has given a huge boost to homegrown nominations.

For the most part, that happened this year, with British contenders like Stephen Graham and Joanna Scanlan scored a well-deserved nod. Meanwhile, hugely popular actors – some of them even from the UK – are overlooked, with Olivia Colman, Andrew Garfield and Denzel Washington among the many stars missed.

That said, it’s a largely successful lineup, with strong showings for movies like After falling in love, Ali & Ava and World’s ugliest person – all are unlikely to receive the same attention from the Academy Awards.

The full list of this year’s nominees can be found here.

In the meantime, here are our biggest surprises and surprises…

The biggest fools

Kirsten Dunst, The power of the dog

The forever overlooked Kirsten Dunst deserves more than that. While The power of the dog accounted for the second-highest number of nominations, but Dunst’s quiet performance as Rose Gordon was overlooked. While her co-stars Jesse Plemons and Benedict Cumberbatch are certainly more than their own nods, it’s a shame to see Dunst sidelined… again.

Andrew Garfield, Clap, Clap… Boom!

This will probably anger the most people. Not only did Andrew Garfield not get a nomination for his role in Lin Manuel Miranda’s musical Clap, Clap… Boom! but he is also not recognized because Tammy Faye’s Eyes (and so does his co-star Jessica Chastain, for that matter). Throw in the mix Spider-Man: There’s no way home were recently disqualified from Baftas altogether and they have plenty of disgruntled Garfield fans.

Olivia Colman, Daughter is gone

Are we so used to Olivia Colman’s great performances that they no longer seem worthy of praise? That may be the case here, unfortunately. She is amazing in Daughter is gone, the source of humor and humanity in a tough character, her face can read a thousand different pains at once. It was a very odd smile.

Kristen Stewart, Spencer

Stewart’s delicate and bubbly performance as Princess Diana seemed to have made it to the top of the awards a few months ago, so it’s puzzling that her chances seem to have shrunk recently. Her Bafta moodiness is even less meaningful than Colman’s – Spencer Seems like not only the best performance of her career, but also the chance for the awards organizations to finally recognize one of Hollywood’s most surprising actors.

The biggest surprises

Stephen Graham, Boiling point

The Lancashire-born star consistently appears in award-winning performances and Boiling point nothing out of the ordinary – but it’s a pleasant shock to see the smaller indie film being recognized for how great it is. Maybe it’s a direct result of Bafta’s recent change to its voting process to “level the playing field.” Or maybe it’s luck. Either way, the more Stephen Graham we get to see this awards season, the better.

Ann Down, Mass

Ann Dowd fans rejoice! The actress finally won her first Bafta award for a heartbreaking performance in the high school shooter. Mass. While most people would recognize Dowd as Aunt Lydia in The story of the maid, the actor has consistently delivered remarkable performances in a career that’s too great to be put into a single role. Here’s hoping this Bafta nomination is the start of a successful awards season for Dowd.

Mike Faist, West story

Most overlooked in the midst of campaigns giving more noble awards to his co-stars, Mike Faist has West storyits secret weapon, so it’s great to see him here. As the leader of the Riff gang, Faist is smug, measured, and playful. A star was born.

Woody Norman, Come on

As an American so convincing that this 11-year-old Brit has secured attention just for that, Norman is also incredibly warm and composed in his feature film debut. What’s more surprising, however, is that Norman got the Bafta nod while his co-stars Joaquin Phoenix and the wonderful, non-celebrity Gaby Hoffmann didn’t.

Baftas, presented by Rebel Wilson, takes place on March 13
