The war drama Na Zahodu nothing new is competing for the most Baftas



This year, the most Baftas are smiling at the new film adaptation of the novel of the same name, Nothing New in the West, which is competing for 14 of the highest British film awards. He is followed by one of the winners of the recently awarded Golden Globes, Soul of the Island.

Nothing new in the west is the first film with so many nominations since 2011 (then it was The King’s Speech). The critically acclaimed drama is the third film adaptation of Erich Marie Remarque’s novel about the First World War. The first was filmed already in 1930, two years after the publication of the novel, the second in 1979. In the latest film, Edward Berger told the story from the trenches with all honesty about the relentless violence endured by many soldiers drawn into the wheels of the Great War. The film illuminates the conflict from a German perspective through the eyes of a young soldier, Paul Bäumer (played by Felix Kammerer), whose idealism is trampled by the harsh reality of war.

With so many nominations, the film came close to Scorching Tiger, Hidden Dragon for the most nominated foreign language film in the history of the Bafta Awards. The last time the most prestigious Bafta was awarded to a non-English-speaking film was in 2019 – it was Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma.

Martin McDonagh’s Irish drama about the breakdown of friendship, Soul of the Island, is nominated in ten categories, while Baz Luhrmann’s biographical outline of Elvis’ breakthrough and fame follows with nine nominations. Tár, Todd Field’s psychological drama about a fallen conductor, has five, including Bafta favorite Cate Blanchett as the female lead. All the listed films are also up for the most prestigious Bafta for Best Film, along with the sci-fi adventure Everything Everywhere at Once.

The new Batman with Robert Pattinson, After the Sun, Top Gun: Maverick, Kit and Good Luck to You, Leo Grande have four nominations each.

In addition to Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis (The Woman King), Danielle Deadwyler (Till), Ana De Armas (Blonde), Emma Thompson (Good Luck to You, Leo Grande) and Michelle Yeoh (All Everywhere at Once) are nominated for the main female roles. . In the male acting category, Austin Butler for his portrayal of the king of rock and roll Elvis, Brendan Fraser for his acclaimed role in Kit, Colin Farrell (Soul of the Island), Daryl McCormack (Good Luck to You, Leo Grande), Paul Mescal (After the Sun) and Bill Nighy (Living).

The list of nominees also includes some blockbusters, including the new chapter of the 1980s aviation hit that finally established Tom Cruise as a star, Top Gun and Avatar: The Path of Water, but all the nominations are in technical categories. In total, 45 films are competing for this year’s BAFTAs.

Some of the more prominent names of this year’s awards season are also missing, for example Hollyqood giant Steven Spielberg with his Fabelmans, who is nominated for best screenplay, but not for direction. The absence of James Cameron with Avatar is also noticeable among the nominees for the best director. But Spielberg and the Fabelmans are nominated for best screenplay. Also not on the list is Olivia Colman, who is being praised for her role in Sam Mendes’ Empire of Light. That’s why her co-star Michael Ward is nominated in the supporting actor category.

The awards will be presented on February 19 in London and will be hosted by Richard E. Grant.
