German Language “All Quiet” Wins British Academy Award, Plus Austin Butler, Cate Blanchett, “Banshees” Actors

Share

All is no longer quiet on the Western front.

Edward Berger’s “All Quiet on the Western Front” won Best Picture today at the BAFTA Awards. Berger won best director, and the film won in cinematography as well. All of a sudden the Netflix gfilm, a masterpiece, could win a lot of Oscars.

Best Actor and Actress went to Austin Butler for “Elvis” and Cate Blanchett for “Tar.” Two actors from “The Banshees of Inisherin” won Supporting awards– Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan.

The show itself, seen in America on BritBox, was eye opening. No one will ever complain about the Oscars again after seeing how primitively the BAFTAs are produced. We got it on some kind of time delay that made no sense as people there in London Tweeted winners we couldn’t see. Very weird.
