FILE Director Bryan Singer in May 2016

FILE PHOTO: Director Bryan Singer arrives at a screening of X-Men Apocalypse at a cinema in London, Britain, May 9, 2016. BAFTA had a change of heart, it seems, with the release of the Atlantic's March 2019 issue, which features a harrowing investigation into Singer's long history of alleged sexual improprieties.

BAFTA said in a statement released on Wednesday that its decision to remove Singer from the nomination came "in light of recent very serious allegations".

"Singer's response to The Atlantic story wrongfully used "homophobia" to deflect from sexual assault allegations and GLAAD urges the media and the industry at large to not gloss over the fact that survivors of sexual assault should be put first".

"BAFTA considers the alleged behaviour completely unacceptable and incompatible with its values", reads a statement from the organisation.

Wickedly amusing royal comedy-drama The Favourite lived up to its name Wednesday, leading the race for the British Academy Film Awards... Those nominations all remain in place, but the name of Singer, who stood alongside Graham King and Anthony McCarten in the nod for best British film, has been removed, reports variety.com. This has led to Mr Singer's suspended nomination. This year, costume drama The Favourite is set to dominate the awards, having garnered 12 nominations including for Best Film.

The BAFTA statement did not give any detail of the allegations.

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.

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