BAFTA suspends 'Bohemian Rhapsody' director Bryan Singer's nomination amid misconduct allegations

Director Bryan Singer’s nomination for Sunday’s Bafta awards ceremony was suspended

BAFTA Takes Singer's Name Off 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Nom

In previous interviews, Malek has said he had "creative differences" with Singer.

"Singer's response to The Atlantic story wrongfully used "homophobia" to deflect from sexual assault allegations and GLAAD urges the media and the industry at large to not gloss over the fact that survivors of sexual assault should be put first". BAFTA says Wednesday that the organization considers the alleged behavior unacceptable and incompatible with its values and that Singer has been informed of the suspension. The 2019 British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards will be held on February 10. Those nominations all remain in place, but the name of Singer, who stood alongside Graham King and Anthony McCarten in the nod for best British film, has been removed, reports variety.com. "This has led to Mr Singer's suspended nomination", BAFTA said. For example, in 2003, BAFTA honored Roman Polanski, a United States fugitive who faces charges of raping a 13-year-old girl, with the David Lean Award for Direction.

The Head of Awards of the Recording Academy, Bill Freimuth, has responded to the issue saying they are viewing it with diligence. She brings the total number of artists who turned down performances to four, according to Ehrlich himself.

"Bafta will make no further statement on this matter during the period of suspension". After all, why bother removing Singer's name from the nomination if the film doesn't receive an award?

Singer has denied the allegations, saying in a statement published at the time by online magazine Deadline that The Atlantic article was "a homophobic smear piece". "Something tells me it probably won then", one astute netizen observed.
