BAFTA suspends nomination for "Bohemian Rhapsody" director Bryan Singer

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has suspended "Bohemian Rhapsody" director Bryan Singer's nomination for Sunday's awards ceremony following allegations of sexual misconduct.

The 53-year-old was listed alongside producer Graham King and screenwriter Anthony McCarten for the Queen biopic's nomination in the "Outstanding British Film" category.

But in a statement posted on its website late on Wednesday (February 6), BAFTA said it had informed Singer that his nomination had been suspended "in light of recent very serious allegations".

There was no immediate reply to emails sent to Singer's agent and lawyer seeking comment.

There was no answer from a telephone number listed for his agent in California outside of office hours.

The awards ceremony will take place in London on Sunday (February 10).
