Bafta criticised over lack of diversity in nominations

For years now, the hashtag #oscarssowhite has trended.

Today, it’s Baftas So White as the British film and TV awards was criticised for its nominations being too male and too white.

One film bucked the trend… For Sama, produced by this programme and ITN, and shot by a young syrian woman Waad Al-Kateab, made Bafta history for the most nominations for a single documentary.
