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!
PRODUCTION DESIGN: The Grand Budapest Hotel
COSTUME DESIGN: The Grand Budapest Hotel
Well, at least some of the races are locked up.
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.
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.
