BAFTA Winners: ‘The Favourite’ Wins Big While ‘Roma’ Takes Best Film

bafta 1

This afternoon, the 72nd annual British Academy Film Awards were handed out. BAFTA has long been looked at as a big time Oscar indicator, with this year being even more the case. Voters were looked at to break some potential ties, as well as hint at what the Academy Awards could look like. What did they do? Well, they went heavy for “The Favourite,” which led the nominations and took home seven statues, though “Roma” ultimately took the top prize. Was this showing for the former enough to sway voters? We’ll find out in a few weeks. For now, we at least know what BAFTA had to say.

Seems like a number of races are sewn up now…

Weisz may now very well win her second Oscar!

I am happy that Roma won but have overall disappointed in most of the BAFTA results. I am so fed up with a certain mentality on other places where everything about Vice gets unfairly trashed. It is a a brilliant sociopolitically relevant polemic. It has actual substance and didactic value unlike the majority of the other contenders. Even the editing win at BAFTA is being severely mocked on other biased sites. Hank Corwin is an editing marvel and his work on Vice was remarkable, efficient, and very few people who actually went to film school would think his work was… Read more »

Christian Bale was robbed.

I think the narrative has shifted from whether Roma will win best picture to just how many awards it’s going to win. The last few years have given us some surprise endings, though, so we can never be 100% sure, but I think it’s safe to call Roma the frontrunner now.

The Disqus glitch is wrongly marking legit posts as spam again. Can you restore my reply about Amy Adams and the supporting actress category? Thanks.

I will contact Disqus but they always take ages to fix this issue.

Roma is definitely the frontrunner now. I think it might be a repeat of last year where the BP didn’t take a Screenplay prize. Green Book could pick up Original Screenplay instead. I think the Editing and Supporting Actress races are the hardest to predict now. Especially the latter where all the major precursors were split. I personally think Weisz and Ali will both make repeat wins this year. Poor Adams again left out in the cold. Maybe it’ll be her year next time around. I’m sure King’s not gonna win though, especially after failing to show up at both… Read more »
