BAFTA Suspends Bryan Singer’s Nomination For Bohemian Rhapsody

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has suspended the nomination of Bohemian Rhapsody director Bryan Singer for a BAFTA award in light of very serious allegations against him. BAFTA said in a statement that it considers Singer’s alleged behavior completely unacceptable and incompatible with its values. While acknowledging Singer’s denial of the allegations, BAFTA noted that the suspension of his nomination will remain in place until the outcome of the allegations has been resolved. BAFTA made it clear that Bohemian Rhapsody remains nominated in the Outstanding British Film category, and the other individuals named as candidates in respect of the film remain nominees. “BAFTA believes everyone has the right to a fulfilling career in a safe, professional working environment, and it will continue to collaborate with the film, games and television industries to achieve this,” the statement says. Singer has denied sexual misconduct allegations against him, including claims that he had sex with underage boys. Copyright(c) 2019 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
