Calm With Horses
Niamh Algar, Barry Keoghan, Calm With Horses, and Wolfwalkers have all been nominated for BAFTAs ahead of the 74th edition of the British Academy Film Awards, which take place on April 11th.

Calm With Horses has been nominated for Best British Film, while Wolfwalkers is nominated for Best Animated Feature alongside Onward and Pixar’s Soul.

Niamh Algar received a nomination in the Best Actress in a Supporting Role category for her performance in Calm With Horses; Barry Keoghan is also nominated for Calm With Horses in the Best Actor in a Supporting Role.

Calm with Horses is a DMC Film and Element Pictures production, in association with Altitude Film Entertainment; developed and co-financed by Film4 and Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland with the participation of the Western Region Audiovisual Producer’s Fund/WRAP Fund.

The film is directed by Nick Rowland, written by Joe Murtagh, produced by Dan Emmerson, Rory Gilmartin, Kate Glover, and executive produced by Michael Fassbender, Conor McCaughan, Andrew Lowe, Ed Guiney, Sam Lavender, Daniel Battsek, Sue Bruce-Smith, Will Clarke, Mike Runagall, Celine Haddad, Sarah Dillon.

An Apple Original Film, Wolfwalkers is the third animated feature from two-time Academy Award©-nominee Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea) and Ross Stewart (ParaNorman, Song of the Sea). The film is co-produced by Kilkenny-based Cartoon Saloon and Melusine Productions, and Variety has tipped it for winning the Best Animated Film Oscar this year. Paul Young, Nora Twomey, Tomm Moore, and Stéphan Roelants serve as producers.

The announcement comes following an initial long-list of potential nominees being announced last month as BAFTA looks to implement new changes to the voting procedures following criticism last year that their nominations were lacking in national, ethnic, and gender diversity.

The key changes come following an in-depth investigation into membership and voting, which has seen a new longlist system introduced in four acting categories, as well as the Best Director and Outstanding British Film categories.

The idea behind this was that voting members chose an extended longlist; the top 80% (roughly) of which make the final longlist, while the final slots were allocated by a diverse jury, believed to be consisting of 12 industry professionals, per category. This Jury selects from the remaining contenders from the extended longlist selected by Academy members.
