This year's Bafta (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) film awards will be the first to take place since the organisation introduced a new set of eligibility rules, created to increase diversity in the films it honours.

Why is the history of the film Bohemian Rhapsody so controversial?

The British Academy has suspended Bryan Singers BAFTA nomination for "Bohemian Rhapsody".

In a statement on Wednesday BAFTA said it considered Singer's alleged behavior "completely unacceptable and incompatible" with its values.

The statement said that Bohemian Rhapsody remains nominated in the outstanding British film category, and the other individuals named remain nominees. BAFTA notes Mr. Singer's denial of the allegations. "The suspension of his nomination will therefore remain in place until the outcome of the allegations has been resolved".

Singer's unprecedented BAFTA nomination suspension has sparked theories that the organization may be doing damage control ahead of "Bohemian Rhapsody's" win on Sunday.

Singer, also known for "The Usual Suspects" and "X-Men", was dropped as "Bohemian Rhapsody" director in late 2017, with Hollywood media reports citing clashes on set.

There are varying stories as to what eventually led to Singer being fired a few days later.

The winners will be announced February 10 at a ceremony in London hosted by Absolutely Fabulous star Joanna Lumley.

The director faces accusations of sexual assault, which he has denied.

Bryan has denied the claims and told BBC that the allegations were a "homophobic smear" to destroy the success of the Queen film.
