BAFTA Awards

Time to celebrate even more big wins for Gravity and 12 Years a Slave to follow up the Golden Globes. This weekend in London, the BAFTA (or British Academy of Film and Television Arts) held their annual show, the BAFTA Awards, honoring the finest in film and television from 2013. This year's set of winners focused mainly on three movies which took home most of the awards: Gravity winning Outstanding British Film (despite the obvious) plus Best Director, McQueen's 12 Years a Slave winning Best Film + Chiwetel for Best Actor (finally!), with American Hustle taking home a couple wins, too. Gravity also nabbed Best Score.

And there you have it - the 67th Annual BAFTA Awards for Film in full. Congratulations to all of this year's winners! It looks like this is the year for both 12 Years and Gravity together. For more info: In total, Gravity won six BAFTA Awards, three for American Hustle, and two for 12 Years a Slave. Last year the big winners were Ben Affleck and Argo, which later went on to reflect a big win at the Oscars. I'm a bit surprised to see Jennifer Lawrence winning again for Best Supporting Actress over Lupita Nyong'o or even Sally Hawkins. Plus there's the Best Screenplay categories that are crazy out of whack, but overall it's mostly a solid set of winners from Britain's Academy of Film and Television Arts. Onward to the Oscars. Satisfied?
