BAFTA Awards

Tonight, the United Kingdom had their big night for Hollywood with the 71st BAFTA Awards, honoring the best in film from last year (2017). 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 biggest winner of the night was Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, taking home five prizes in total including Best Film and Best British Film. The other big winners include Rungano Nyoni's I Am Not a Witch taking home Best First Feature. Plus Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell, Allison Janney, and Gary Oldman winning in the acting categories. Baby Driver won, too. Read on for the full list of 2018 winners.

Congratulations to all of this year's BAFTA winners and nominees. Overall, this honestly is an intersting but not impressive selection of winners - with Three Billboards once again cleaning up as it has been already. And not everyone is going to be happy about that. Three Billboards isn't a bad film, I just don't think it's deserving of Best Film and everything else. I'm happy to see Guillermo del Toro take home another Best Director win, but I'm also still partial to Call Me By Your Name and I wish it was winning more awards. I'm also surprised The Shape of Water won Best Score over Phantom Thread and even Dunkirk. Really? This is madness! At least Baby Driver won something, too. I'm still happy for all of the nominees. For more info on the winners, visit BAFTA.org. Another awards season finale, with the Oscars next in a few weeks. Thoughts?
