Jeremy Brett, best known for playing Sherlock Holmes in the highly acclaimed Granada TV Series, was one of Britain’s best actors. In a career spanning decades, he has performed many roles on stage, film, and television. Sadly in his lifetime Jeremy Brett was never awarded the recognition he so richly deserved. He certainly should have been awarded a BAFTA for his acting. It is a sad fact that whilst he presented a BAFTA in an award ceremony one year, he was never awarded one himself. BAFTA should hang their heads in collective shame for failing to honour Jeremy Brett.
Although Jeremy Brett is no longer with us, many fans feel that BAFTA should honour this truly remarkable man and hugely gifted actor and award him a Posthumous BAFTA award. After all if Heath Ledger can have one awarded at the BAFTA Awards in 2009 for his role as The Joker in Batman, why cant Jeremy Brett? This petition is to ask BAFTA to consider giving Jeremy Brett his long overdue posthumous award and finally recognise his huge contribution over many decades to the world of acting.
