This has led viewers to use the hashtag #BaftasSoWhite on Twitter to express their frustration at the lack of diversity among the winners. Many viewers pointed out that there were brilliant performances by nominees such as Viola Davis, Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, and others, who were deserving of recognition.

The lack of diversity among this year’s award winners highlights how much the UK film industry still has to do to address its systemic racism and lack of inclusivity.
