Has been criticised

As per yesterday's "It seemed very white" post , last night's BBC News at Ten continued racialising the BAFTAs:
The nominations have been announced for this year's BAFTA awards, which celebrate the best in British and international TV and film. They have not been without controversy as the nominees list has been criticised for not being sufficiently diverse. All of the nominees in the acting categories are white and no female directors were nominated for the seventh year in a row. Last year, BAFTA introduced new rules saying films would not be nominated for Best British film or Best British debut unless they met two out of four diversity standards. However, these criteria don't extend to the acting and directing awards.
