BAFTA to embrace new diversity rules.
BAFTA is also planning to introduce the BFI's (British Film Institute) diversity standards for all UK production categories in time for the 2021 awards, taking race, gender, disability, age, socioeconomic background and sexual orientation into account.

One of the rules requires a show to have at least one character from an under-represented group, as well as meeting one or more of a list of targets for secondary and minor characters, including a 50-50 gender balance, 20% belonging to an under-represented ethnic group and 10% to be LGBTQ+.

That rules out every film I’ve ever watched then 😄

Sounds like interracial lesbian porn is the quickest way to tick most of the boxes.

One sword swallower to another.

Re: BAFTA to embrace new diversity rules.
Couple of Saturday's saw Britains Got Talent, not my choice of programme, but was round my sisters so not my remote..

Anyway, some sword swallower is on it, young bloke from Moldova and David Walliams was in big thrall with comments like 'I could just look at you and you'd go through' followed by 'your a naughty boy, I'd like to put you over my knee'...

The Moldovan bloke looked a bit confused, maybe lost in translation a bit, but not exactly comfortable with it.

what struck me though, was what would the reaction have been if Simon Cowell had made the exact same remarks to a girl of the same age on the show?

It would have got a reaction no doubt, but Walliams comments, nobody bats an eyelid?

I posted this link the other week. Tells you much of where we are these days. Bought the book last night to read on holiday next month.

A lot of this is already in place but not with the on-screen talent. There will, as there is already, be loads of exceptions that you can apply for. For example, if you were casting a remake of Dunkirk getting a 50/50 gender balance will be problematic as will a 10% LGBT quota.

Just what are the fucking rules nowadays? Positive discrimination by the looks.

That'll rule out sexist filth like Calendar Girls...
