BAFTA TV Awards Reveal Dates, Introduce Eligibility and Voting Changes

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has confirmed the dates for its TV and TV craft awards ceremonies in 2022.

The BAFTA TV Craft awards will take place on Sunday, April 24 and the TV awards will follow two weeks later on May 8.

Nominees will be revealed on Wednesday, March 30 next year. The Virgin Media Must-See Moment nominations will be announced first, on Wednesday, March 23.

The organization also unveiled changes to eligibility and voting criteria, including:

– U.K. performers appearing in shows only eligible in the “International” category will now be individually be eligible in the performance categories (a rule change that has already been enacted in the Craft categories for U.K. craftspeople working on international shows)

– The “International” category will be expanded from four to six nominees

– International members can now vote across all categories rather than just four

– Line producers, production managers and heads of production can now be eligible candidates for consideration and recognized alongside other members of the production team

– The requirement under the BFI Diversity Standards 2020 to meet one of at least four entry criteria will double to two, one relating to industry access and opportunities and one other.

Although it will not impact eligibility for the awards, BAFTA will also ask entrants whether they have achieved “albert” certification and completed the albert carbon calculator: BAFTA’s albert consortium is the industry’s authority on screen -based environmental sustainability.

“The television industry has continued to innovate and creatively thrive during the challenges of the last year,” Sara Putt, deputy chair of BAFTA and chair of the BAFTA Television Committee, said in a statement. “TV has once again proven its unique value in keeping audiences entertained and informed, and its vital role in all of our lives.”

“The progress being made to better represent a broader range of stories and voices on screen and to be properly inclusive and open to talent irrespective of background, was evident in the range of outstanding work and individuals recognised in the Virgin Media BAFTA Television Awards and Television Craft Awards earlier this year.”

“Each year we consult with the industry and review our rules and eligibility criteria to ensure our awards not only reflect an evolving global industry but also help drive positive change,” Putt continued. “And this year I’m proud that we are stepping up our consultation with the industry on environmental sustainability with a view to formally adopting requirements from 2023 that will ensure a more sustainable industry for all.”

Those who have taken a (virtual) trip to Serenity will never want to leave it – at least that’s how Sweet Magnolias fans feel. The Netflix show received a lot of positive press after it premiered in May. It has feel-good vibes, family-friendly storylines, and charming small-town characters that have made it a hit. Netflix confirmed that season 2 would begin weeks after the dramatic cliffhanger ending. Sweet Magnolias will return in Season 2 – but details are few and far between.

When is the Sweet Magnolias season 2 release date?

It’s back for another season of Sweet Magnolias! Netflix announced in mid-March that season 2 would be released in 2022, over a year after its release in 2018.

Cast members have teased fans with photos on Instagram, teasing what’s to come in the new season. According to Joanna Garcia Swisher on Instagram, she doesn’t have any spoilers, but she assures fans it will be worth the wait if she did.

‘Sweet Magnolias’ Season 2: What We Know About the Netflix Show’s Future

What are the cast’s thoughts on season 2?

Netflix announced its second season shortly after, and JoAnna, who plays Maddie, teased that season 2 will have “hope, comfort, drama, and goodness.”

Netflix broke the news of season 2 long before the cast of Sweet Magnolias talked about it. Heather Headley, who plays Helen, explained what she hopes to see in the coming season during an interview with The Sun: “I think it sets it up for season 2 for [viewers] to find out ‘Why did you go away, why are you back, what’s happening, why is he here, why is she here?’ That kind of thing. I hope the world allows us to have a season 2.”

Actor Chris Klein was hopeful for a second chance after Bill’s bombshell in the season 1 finale episode. Before Netflix’s announcement, Dan Paulson told The Sun: “I believe that it was always our goal to continue after season 1.” In my selfish desire to see what becomes of Bill Townsend, I am hoping we get that opportunity.”.

How will the second season be structured?

Adding another season to Sweet Magnolias will provide more insight into Kyle’s situation after the car accident, as well as who else was in the car with him. We’re likely to find out: Will Maddie take Bill back? Will Bill take Maddie back? Isaac’s parents are who he was born to? Erik and Helen, can there be any hope? What are the chances of Ty and Annie getting together in the future? Does Noreen remain in the picture?

JoAnna plans to stir up even more drama with Maddie’s new boyfriend, Cal, following the show’s current concerns. “I would like to see that journey and see that honest moment for her to let the dust settle,” JoAnna told AfterBuzzTV.
