Awards, Musings

And the BAFTA goes to…

Its February 16, the BAFTAs are here and the main winners as announced (and my choices where I voted differently) are as follows:

Outstanding British Film – Gravity

Animated Film – Frozen

Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer – Keiran Evans for his work as Director of Kelly & Victor (I had picked Kelly Marcel, Writer, Saving Mr Banks)

Supporting Actor – Barkhad Abdi for Captain Phillips (I had picked Matt Damon, as I wasn’t expecting a first-timer to win, but I’m very glad that Barkhad did so – he definitely deserved it)

Cinematography – Emmanuel Lubezki for Gravity (no surprises there!)

Supporting Actress – Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle

Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema – Peter Greenaway

Original Screenplay – Eric Warren Singer and David O Russell for American Hustle (I had hoped that Inside Llewyn Davis would swing it)

Adapted Screenplay – Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope for Philomena

EE Rising Star Award – Will Poulter (they are all amazing, but when I voted way back at the start of January, I picked George MacKay)

Leading Actor – Chiwetel Ejiofor for 12 Years A Slave

Director – Alfonso Cuaron for Gravity

Leading Actress – Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine (if she hadn’t won, I would have had to eat my hat…)

Best Film – 12 Years A Slave

BAFTA Fellowship – Dame Helen Mirren

Congratulations to them all, and nine out of 13 picks ain’t bad…
