Netflix receives 23 BAFTA nominations, including best picture for 'The Irishman'

BAFTA revealed its 2020 film awards nominations, with Netflix Inc. receiving 23, including 10 for Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman."

The crime epic is in the running for best picture alongside the most nominated film "Joker," Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," South Korea's "Parasite," and Golden Globes best picture winner "1917."

BAFTA, or British Academy of Film and Television Arts, hosts the U.K.'s flagship film awards show. The organization hosts a sister ceremony celebrating the year's best television.

Netflix's "Marriage Story" and "The Two Popes" received five nominations apiece. The streaming service is also up for best animation for its Christmas film "Klaus" — along with The Walt Disney Co. blockbusters "Frozen 2" and "Toy Story 4" — and best documentary for "American Factory" and "The Great Hack."

Netflix took home two gongs out of 34 nominations at The Golden Globes on Jan. 5. The U.S.-based streamer faced a backlash last year after its film "Roma" — which had a limited cinema release — won four BAFTAs, prompting theater chain Cineworld Group PLC to pull its support for the organization.

The 73rd BAFTA film awards will take place on Feb. 2 at London's Royal Albert Hall.

This year's nominations have been criticized for a lack of diversity, namely the failure to include any people of color in the acting categories. "We'd have liked to have seen more diversity in the nominations, it does continue to be an industrywide issue," Emma Baehr, BAFTA's director of awards and membership, told The Hollywood Reporter.
