The Favourite and Roma Top BAFTAs

On the 10th of February, Joanna Lumley greeted us to this year’s BAFTA winners. They give our best insight yet to the outcome of the forthcoming Oscars.

 

Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma won the top prize of the night, Best Film. The Mexican semi-autobiographical drama was up against BlacKkKlansman, The Favourite, Green Book and A Star is Born. Cuarón himself won Best Director. Cuarón also won the Golden Globe for Best Director so it looks likely he’ll win the Oscar too.

 

The Favourite was the most successful film of the night with 12 nominations and seven wins. This included Outstanding British Film and Best Actress for Olivia Coleman. The BAFTAs have unsurprisingly historically been bias to British nominees so Coleman’s win doesn’t tell us much about which Actress will be taking home the golden statue later this month.

 

Rami Malek meanwhile won Best Actor for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, a role for which he also won the Golden Globe. It is perfectly reasonable at this point to assume Malek will win the Oscar on the 24th.

 

Letitia Wright took home the publicly voted EE Rising Star Award. Having played a prominent roles in films such as Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One and Shuri in the MCU films Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War (both among the highest grossing films ever made), she has certainly had an incredible year!

 

It was a truly exciting night providing some greater insight into 2019’s award season!
