Well, the BAFTA awards were last night and we were all hoping that everything would become crystal clear. Well, some things did. Others, not so much.
Best Picture: The Revenant
Just to clarify things, Spotlight won BFCA and SAG. The Revenant won the Globe, BAFTA and DGA. The Big Short won PGA. Help!
Best Director: Alejandro G. Iñarritu – The Revenant
This one seems very likely, but there’s a chance George Miller could take it.
Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio – The Revenant
Best Actress: Brie Larson – Room
They’re both winning Oscars. Concluded.
Best Supporting Actor: Mark Rylance – Bridge Of Spies
Best Supporting Actress: Kate Winslet – Steve Jobs
Both of these seem like the runner-up in their respective race.
Best Original Screenplay: Spotlight
Best Adapted Screenplay: The Big Short
Unfortunately, both of these seem locked up.
Best Cinematography: The Revenant
Chivo’s winning another one, isn’t he?
Best Film Editing: Mad Max Fury Road
Best Production Design: Mad Max Fury Road
Best Costume Design: Mad Max Fury Road
Best Makeup: Mad Max Fury Road
Well, look’s like Fury Road is walking away with all the technical awards…
Best Sound: The Revenant
…Huh. That goes against my initial predictions. We’ll see what happens.
Best Original Score: The Hateful Eight
Best Animated Feature: Inside Out
My Oscar predictions remain firmly grounded.
Best British Film: Brooklyn
The only one with a Best Picture nomination. Surprising.
