Give Jeremy Brett A Posthumous BAFTA Award
To: BAFTA (The British Academy of Film and Television Arts).
Very early on in our campaign, we were notified that our early success had been highlighted to BAFTA, who responded by saying that they do not award Posthumous BAFTAs after a certain length of time. We find itis morally wrong for BAFTA to only give an award to someone who has recently died, but not honour those who died earlier. It is an insult to everyone in the world of acting and show-business, and it is also an infringement on the very notion of equality. It should be known that there is also precedence for Posthumous Awards from foreign award bodies such as the Academy Awards, and also the French Césars, who, at their 1987 ceremony, honoured the outstanding actor Jean Gabin, who passed away in 1976.
We know that there is a lot of feeling from many people around the globe regarding the fact that Jeremy Brett was never honoured during his lifetime. We would like to underline the fact that it is not just the fans who feel this way, but also fellow actors. Mr. Edward Hardwicke, who starred alongside Jeremy in Granada Television’s successful Sherlock Holmes series, has frequently voiced his disappointment and surprise at the fact that no BAFTA was awarded Jeremy for his outstanding performances throughout his career.
We are asking you to help us to persuade BAFTA to recognise Jeremy Brett's contribution to stage, film, and television. We think it is time to finally applaud the legacy left behind by one of Britain's best-loved actors.
