The EE BAFTA Film Awards voting takes place over three rounds: Longlisting, Nominations and Winners, by BAFTA’s global voting membership – comprising over 7,500 industry creatives. The Longlisting round was introduced in 2021 following the landmark BAFTA Review. As a result of the Review, BAFTA made over 120 changes to its voting, membership and campaigning processes to level the playing field for all entrants and address areas of underrepresentation.

  • Round One voting (from 9 December 2022 to 30 December 2022) determined the Longlists announced today.
  • Round Two voting (which opens today, 6 January) will determine the Nominations, which will be announced on 19 January.
  • Categories in Rounds One and Two are voted for by the corresponding Chapters or Juries made up of BAFTA members, except for Best Film which is voted for by the full film voting BAFTA membership.
  • Round Three voting (from Friday 20 January) will determine the Winners, to be announced at the EE BAFTA Film Awards on Sunday 19 February. Round Three is voted for by the corresponding Chapters or Juries made up of BAFTA members, and by the full film voting BAFTA membership. Please refer to the table below for details.
  • The EE Rising Star Award is the only award voted for by the public.  EE will unveil the Nominees on Tuesday 17 January and the winner will be announced at the ceremony.

Chapters are made up of BAFTA members who hold specialist knowledge in the relevant craft. Additionally, members are invited to join up to three Opt-in Chapters.

Juries are comprised of BAFTA members with varied industry roles and experience and from diverse backgrounds, gender, location and age groups.

To ensure a level playing field and fair consideration for all titles, regardless of marketing budget, all film voting members are allocated a randomly selected sample of 15 films before voting in Round One.

It is compulsory for all voters, including chapters and juries, to watch all Longlisted films in their Chapter categories before voting in Round Two.

We encourage voters to watch as many films as possible at the cinema and over a thousand screenings have been offered to BAFTA’s voting membership.  In addition, all qualifying films have been made available to voting members on BAFTA View, BAFTA’s online viewing platform - there have been over 130,000 streams to date.
