BAFTA 2021 TV Noms Update

Yep! Nominstions are in for BAFTA TV 2021. Steve McQueen’s ‘Small Axe’ is up for 15 nominations!

Daniel Kaluuya becomes the first British Black actor to win ‘Best Supporting Actor’ for his part in ‘Judas And The Black Messiah’ at the Academy Awards on Sunday. Well Done! Could he have reached such heights if he’d stayed in the UK?

Whoopi Goldberg

In an interview with Variety Magazine, Whoopi Goldberg says that she’s writing a story about Black women of ‘a certain age’ who’re superheroes that save the world. Sounds a tad tiring to us. Dressed regally in the magazine spread, Goldberg is also said to be producing ‘The Emmett Till Story’.

John Boyega is up for awards in this year’s BAFTA TV Awards for ‘Small Axe’. The BBC series is up for a whopping 15 nominations! Steve McQueen’s films are like little love letters to first generation Windrush settlers.
