Amanda Berry, BAFTA CEO, said that she was ‘ disappointed ‘ about the lack of gender diversity in the list of nominees, but added that it was “to take nothing away from the people who were nominated. “
Berry told the British FATHER news agency: ‘ We have nominated 13 directors who are female in other categories… And that is what gives me a joy and hope; Six female directors in the Shorts category, and this is the category where we are seeing talent really at the beginning of their career and they are the industry of the future, but we are going to do more, we are not going to stop printing. ‘
Executive officers also mentioned that the lack of diversity among the nominees is “furious”.
‘ It is clear that everyone knows that everyone in the four acting groups is white people, that is verwoesend, we can’t let the industry do something; All we can do is encourage and inspire and help people get to the bottom, “said Marc Samuelson, chairperson of the film Committee of BAFTA, to DAD.
