Story highlights

US recession drama 'Nomadland' and British coming-of-age story 'Rocks' has got the maximum nods at this year's nomination list of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards.

US recession drama 'Nomadland' and British coming-of-age story 'Rocks' has got the maximum nods at this year's nomination list of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards.  The nominees were announced on Tuesday. 

Both the films have secured seven nods each.

BAFTA, which was accused of being 'all-white' in its 2020 ceremony, ensured that this year the nominations were diverse and well represented. 

Not one actor of colour was nominated in 2020 and the British Academy faced immense pressure to diversify this year's nominees.

This year, the best actor category witnessed a significant change and saw Daniel Kaluuya, Riz Ahmed, Dominique Fishback, Tahar Rahim and Bukky Bakray being named among the 16 nominees from ethnic minority backgrounds in the acting categories.

The BAFTAs, Britain`s top movie honours, will take place on April 11.
