Share

It’s an all white BAFTA. And it’s all -white with them. All the supposed and anticipated Oscar winners swept the British Academy. I am surprised, however, that “Jojo Rabbit,” won Best Adapted Screenplay. I’d choose any of the other nominees. The Oscars are one week from tonight, and these are the likely winners.

keep refreshing…

Sam Mendes has won Best Director for “1917.” The film wins Best Picture. Has already won cinematography.

The BAFTA Awards are being given out in London. So far they’re hewing to the American awards circuit. Laura Dern and Brad Pitt have each won Supporting Actor awards. “Parasite” has won Best Foreign Language Film. “Parasite” has also won Best Original Screenplay. “Jojo Rabbit” picked up adapted screenplay. “1917” is Best British Film. Roger Deakins won Best Cinematography for “1917.” “For Sama” is Best Documentary.
