Former BAFTA Nominee Phil Davis Resigns From Organization Over This Year’s Ceremony

Phil’s on-screen credits include The Who’s rock opera “Quadrophenia,” the TV shows “Whitechapel,” “Sherlock” and “Merlin,” and the historical drama “Vera Drake,” for which he was nominated for a BAFTA in 2005.

On Wednesday evening, he shared a tweet telling his followers he had made the decision to resign from the British media organization.

The BAFTA awards were an embarrassing travesty,” he wrote. “Cutting deserving winners speeches for toe curling non interviews. Poor Richard E Grant pretending to arrive in a Batmobile and no Bernard Cribbens [tribute]. I resigned my membership.”

The organization has insisted the Doctor Who actor will be honored at the upcoming TV BAFTAs, which will air in the spring.

Netflix’s anti-war epic “All Quiet On The Western Front” was this year’s big BAFTA winner, scooping seven of the 14 awards it was nominated for.
