BAFTA Wins!

BEST FILM: Boyhood
BEST DIRECTOR: Richard Linklater, Boyhood

After the sudden surge for Birdman, Boyhood is now trying to make a comeback. It’s going to be a fight to the finish to see which film walks away with the Oscars for picture and director – or if there’s a split.

BEST BRITISH FILM: The Theory Of Everything

And with that, whatever small chance The Imitation Game had of pulling off an upset Best Picture win has disappeared.

LEADING ACTOR: Eddie Redmayne, The Theory of Everything

Best Actor is just as big a battle as Picture at this point.

LEADING ACTRESS: Julianne Moore, Still Alice
SUPPORTING ACTOR: J.K. Simmons, Whiplash
SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Patricia Arquette, Boyhood

All three of them have the Oscar locked up. These wins don’t mean anything. Although it’s nice to see Patricia Arquette finally has her speech memorized.

ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY: The Grand Budapest Hotel
ADAPTED SCREENPLAY: The Theory Of Everything

And now the screenplay categories are getting befuddled! Man, this is a crazy Oscar year!

CINEMATOGRAPHY: Birdman
PRODUCTION DESIGN: The Grand Budapest Hotel
COSTUME DESIGN: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Well, at least some of the races are locked up.

EDITING: Whiplash
SOUND: Whiplash

I totally support these wins, but I’m not sure if the Oscars will follow through.

VISUAL EFFECTS: Interstellar

My predictions in this category should be up later today.

MAKE UP & HAIR: The Grand Budapest Hotel
ORIGINAL MUSIC: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Ah, these categories still don’t have a clear-cut winner.

DOCUMENTARY: Citizenfour
FILM NOT IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE: Ida

Unlike these categories

ANIMATED FILM: The Lego Movie

You know, giving the award to a film that’s not even nominated for the Oscar isn’t doing us bloggers any favors.

BRITISH SHORT ANIMATION: The Bigger Picture
BRITISH SHORT FILM: Boogaloo & Graham

Both of these have Oscar nominations, so no surprise here.

EE RISING STAR: Jack O’Connell

Hmm, maybe I’ll see him do more stuff in the future.

So, for the most part, the BAFTA Awards just proved to make everything more confusing as a pose to clarifying anything.
