71st British Academy Film Awards

The 71st British Academy Film Awards, more commonly known as the BAFTAs, were held on 18 February 2018 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, honouring the best national and foreign films of 2017. Presented by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, accolades were handed out for the best feature-length film and documentaries of any nationality that were screened at British cinemas in 2017. Following revelations of sexual harassment in the film industry, many attendees wore black or a badge to show their support for the Time's Up movement.

The nominees were announced on 9 January 2018 by Letitia Wright and Natalie Dormer. The Shape of Water had the most nominations of any film, with twelve; Darkest Hour and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri followed with nine nominations each. As with the 75th Golden Globe Awards, there was criticism for the lack of female nominees in the best director category, with Greta Gerwig notably not nominated for Lady Bird.[2]
