Netflix's All Quiet On The Western Front

All Quiet On The Western Front Leads 2023 BAFTA Nominations

The 2023 BAFTA nominations are in with Netflix’s epic All Quiet On The Western Front leading the pack with 14 nominations.

The German-language adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s classic novel detailing the horrors of the trenches during the First World War premiered at TIFF before bowing on Netflix with little fanfare but has steadily gained momentum this awards season. The film – which landed on our list of the best films of 2023 – is the first film to earn 14 BAFTA nominations since The King’s Speech in 2011 and ties with 2001’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon for the most BAFTA nominations by a film not in the English language.

All Quiet On The Western Front will vie for Best Film alongside The Banshees Of Inisherin and Everything Everywhere All At Once, which earned 10 nominations each. Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis followed closely behind with a total of nine nominations.

The BAFTAs recognize Best Film as well as a separate Outstanding British Film category with Martin McDonagh’s Ireland-filmed Banshees represented in both categories.

Several Oscars frontrunners received nominations including Colin Farrell for Banshees, Brendan Fraser for The Whale and Austin Butler for Elvis in the Best Actor category with Best Supporting frontrunner Ke Huy Quan also recognized. In the Best Actress category, both Cate Blanchett for Tár and Michelle Yeoh for Everything Everywhere All At Once received nominations.

On the doc side, critical favourites All The Beauty and the BloodshedMoonage Daydream, and Fire of Love, all earned nods.

With a total of 45 films represented across BAFTA categories, notable absences include Steven Spielberg as Best Director for The Fabelmans and Olivia Colman in the Best Actress category for Empire Of Light as well as a lack of representation for Women Talking and Glass Onion. However, the BAFTA’s eligibility requirements may factor into “snubs” – the director longlist was required to have an even split of male and female nominees and this year saw twice as many male directors submitted to the category longlist while nominations juries were enlisted to ensure diversity in other categories.

The BAFTA awards will be handed out on February 19, 2023.
