Joker

Todd Phillips – Director, Producer and Writer of Joker

“Wow. What an incredible honor (honour!?) for the significant recognition Joker received from BAFTA across the board. Recently, when Joaquin and I were in the UK, the love we felt for Joker was palpable and I just want to thank my British colleagues for connecting with the film on a cellular level. A sincere “well done” to my wonderful cast and crew who worked tirelessly to bring this film to the big screen. I also want to congratulate my fellow nominees, it is an honour (I’m going with honour!) to be in their company.”

Hildur Guđnadóttir – Composer for Joker

“Thank you so very much to BAFTA for this beautiful nomination. I’m touched by your support and your recognition for my music for JOKER. I would also like to congratulate Todd, Joaquin and all the other nominees for JOKER. Working on this film has been such an extraordinary experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

Jeff Groth – Editor of Joker

“I’m honored to be considered, and it’s incredible that such an emotional and personal film can also be so widely recognized.”

Rocketman

Matthew Vaughn – MARV studios and David Furnish – rocket pictures – producers of Rocketman 

“Rocketman has been a labour of love for us all so it’s truly touching to receive 4 BAFTA nominations this morning and have Taron’s spectacular performance and Elton and Bernie’s original song honoured by the HFPA. The whole journey has been the most incredible experience to us as producers. Elton, Taron and Bernie – we salute you!”

For Sama

Nevine Mabro – Channel 4 News and Exec Producer of For Sama

“Waad al-Kateab is a young Syrian filmmaker who is now a refugee living and working in the UK.  I am delighted that her directorial debut For Sama has been recognised with four BAFTA nominations including Outstanding British Film. This is an incredible achievement for a young woman who just three years ago, we feared would not make it out of Aleppo alive. We have worked hard to find and develop diverse talent and these array of nominations are hugely encouraging for young women filmmakers everywhere.”

The Irishman

Thelma Schoonmaker – Editor of The Irishman

“Scorsese’s unique structural ideas and style for IRISHMAN made it a joy to edit with him.  To have those bold ideas recognized by BAFTA members is thrilling.”

Jojo Rabbit

Michael Giacchino – Composer for Jojo Rabbit

“I am honored to have been nominated for a BAFTA for my work on Jojo Rabbit. I am insanely proud that I was able to be a part of such an important and timely film. Through the eyes of a child, Taika uniquely teaches us how ones perspective of the world can change dramatically when we simply take the time to connect with one another. Many thanks to the BAFTA for this recognition.”

Diego Maradona

Asif Kapadia – Director of Diego Maradona

“I’m so proud that our film DIEGO MARADONA has been nominated for Best Documentary at the BATFTAs!! This was such a difficult film to make about a very complex character. The nomination really recognises the hard work of our brilliant team behind the scenes. I’m really excited!”
