2017 BAFTA Awards

Last night, the United Kingdom had their big night for Hollywood at the 70th BAFTA Awards, honoring the best in film from last year (2016). These awards don't really have a major influence on the Oscars, but it's always interesting to see who our friends across the pond select as the winners. The two big winners are La La Land as Best Film, and I, Daniel Blake as Best British Film, both of these were expected to win. Emma Stone and Casey Affleck won the main acting awards. Last year, it was The Revenant and Brooklyn taking home the two big awards, for reference. The set of winners this time once is very diverse, with pretty much every excellent film from 2016 taking home something. Read on for the full list of 2017 winners below.

Congratulations to all of this year's winners and nominees. Overall, this is fantastic selection of winners - a mix of all different kind of films across the board. As much as I want Amy Adams to win Best Actress for Arrival, I'm still happy for Emma Stone. As everyone knows, La La Land was my #1 of 2016, so anything it wins is fine by me. And I'm happy that Arrival won something - Best Sound. I totally loved Son of Saul, it was one of my Best Films of 2015, so I'm glad to see it take home an award. I'm happy to see Manchester by the Sea winning a few categories, and it's great to see Lion getting some love, since that film is a hard sell but it's definitely connecting.

    It'll be some kind of miracle if LA LA LAND is able to lose its Oscar.

    Anya Taylor-Joy should have won the Rising Star Award... she is an amazing actress. Far better than Tom Holland, in my opinion.
