The Bafta nominations will be announced from 07:35 GMT on Tuesday. But the nominees for one category, the Rising Star Award, which is voted for by the public, were announced on Monday.Awkwafina - who won a Golden Globe on Sunday for her role in The Farewell - was nominated alongside Fighting with my Family's Jack Lowden, Booksmart's Kaitlyn Dever, Waves actor Kelvin Harrison Jr and Blue Story star Michael Ward.Ward has said his nomination was a vindication of the film following controversies around its screenings.The gang drama was temporarily withdrawn from Vue cinemas after seven police officers were injured in a disturbance at Star City in Birmingham in November, where there were reports of youths with machetes.
Ward was a model for online retailers such as JD Sports before turning to acting
It was later reinstated. Ward told the PA news agency: "You have to watch it to feel the impact. The headlines or whatever is one thing, but that doesn't sum up the film."Bafta winners and nominees in most categories are voted for by 6,500 Bafta members, who are industry professionals and creatives around the world.The Bafta Awards ceremony will take place on 2 February at the Royal Albert Hall in London, hosted by Graham Norton.
