The British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) has suspended Bryan Singer from the list of nominees for his work on Bohemian Rhapsody amid sexual assaults allegations against the filmmaker. However, the organizers ensured that the film was due to be awarded, not the director, so Bohemian Rhapsody would still be appreciated on the necessary level, just without the director’s name being mentioned. “In light of recent very serious allegations, BAFTA has informed Bryan Singer that his nomination for Bohemian Rhapsody has been suspended, effective immediately,” reads the BAFTA press release, “BAFTA considers the alleged behavior completely unacceptable and incompatible with its values. This has led to Mr. Singer’s suspended nomination.” They added that they understand that the allegations against the director are not proven and he denies them, so if it is proven that he was not guilty, the BAFTA organizational committee is ready to apologize to Singer and to honor him as the director of the movie
