Every 2020 Game Nominated for a BAFTA Award

BAFTA Game Awards

Video games have been a major part of the BAFTA awards since 2004, but what is BAFTA, you ask? According to Wikipedia, “The British Academy Film Awards or BAFTA Film Awards are presented in an annual award show hosted by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) to honour the best British and international contributions to film. The ceremonies were initially held at the flagship Odeon cinema in Leicester Square in London, before being held at the Royal Opera House from 2008 to 2016. Since 2017, the ceremony has been held at the Royal Albert Hall in London.” If the BAFTA Awards, then why are video games included in them? Well, the BAFTA Games Awards or British Academy Games Awards are an annual British awards ceremony honoring ‘outstanding creative achievement’ in the video game industry. So it looks like they are two different awards, but still under the same overall institution. So how many BAFTA awards for gaming are there?

That’s every single game that has been nominated for a BAFTA game award in 2020. The winners of each category at the BAFTA Awards will be announced later in March. What games do you think will win in each category? Personally, I think that Dreams will take home the win for Technical Achievement, because there are near endless possibilities that can be created using the game. As for EE Game of the Year, I have a feeling that The Last of Us Part II will end up bringing home yet another win for game of the year as it won a whole lot of them earlier this year. Will you be following the announcements for the winners of these BAFTA game awards? Here’s hoping for an even bigger and better year for video games heading into 2021, but for now we wait for the official winners of 2020.
