Home Movies UPDATING BAFTA Winners Point to Possible Oscars: “Nomadland,” Director Chloe Zhao, Frances...

BAFTA, the British Academy, is handing out their awards now live in London. The show won’t air in the US until 9pm on the BBC. Who cares? The whole thing is being done on social media, so why watch at 9? It’s a big mistake, they are decades behind in understanding this.

Anyway, the winners are going along the lines of prior winners of prizes. UPDATING

Neither Anthony Hopkins nor Frances McDormand bothered to show up for the BAFTAs even on video. Really. Deserving as they are, I don’t think they will win Oscars. SAG voted for Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman, who will have the edge. But “Nomadland” will certainly win Best Picture now.

BEST PICTURE: “Nomadland”
BEST ACTOR Anthony Hopkins, “The Father”
BEST ACTRESS Frances McDormand, “Nomadland”
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Daniel Kaluuya in “Judas and the Black Messiah”
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Yuh-Jung Youn in “Minari”

BEST DIRECTOR Chloe Zhao, “Nomadland”

“Nomadland” won Best Cinematography.

“My Octopus Teacher” won Best Documentary, which is very nice. But I implore Academy voters to vote for “Time,” from Amazon Studios, the actual best documentary.

Pixar’s “Soul” is Best Animated Feature and won Best Score.

“Promising Young Woman” Best British Film and Best Original Screenplay.
“The Father” won Best Adapted Screenplay.
