The Winners Of The 2015 BAFTA Awards


The Winners Of The 2015 BAFTA Awards

Today saw the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) handing out their awards for achievements in film for 2014, giving top honors to Boyhood, which also received Best Director and Best Supporting Actress. This means that, for the first time in six years, it looks as though BAFTA and AMPAS will disagree, what with the near-certainty of the latter going with Birdman for Best Picture (its wins with the PGA, DGA, and SAG have made it impossible to deny).

Aside from that, we can expect a few other changes, including Best Director, which will almost certainly be going to Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu for Birdman, a prediction strongly supported by the fact that the DGA winner wins the corresponding Oscar about 90% of the time. You can also expect Best Original Screenplay, awarded to The Grand Budapest Hotel by BAFTA, to switch over to Birdman for the Oscars (a Golden Globe and Critics Choice win make this very hard to deny as they’re usually right) and for Best Adapted Screenplay, awarded to The Theory of Everything by BAFTA, to switch over to The Imitation Game for the Oscars (the winner of the USC Scripter award usually wins this, including the last four years in a row).

All in all, the awards today were merely an interesting look at what another voting body would choose. However, as I already mentioned, we can expect a multitude of differences when it comes to the Academy Awards, but also several that could stay the same, including all four acting categories.
