BAFTA 2017: Full List of Winners

The 70th BAFTA Awards took place last night and amongst all of the red carpet action, trophies and glamour, there was an underlying political and social theme. Stephen Fry’s shots at the Trump administration, Southern Rail and Danny Dyer were all accurate and entertaining. Starting off with his grandmother’s saying “cop a load of this, bitches” and continued by referring to a recent episode of Who Do You Think You Are, and claimed that Prince William will be “devastated after finding out he’s related to Danny Dyer”. But I think that my favourite was during one of his take downs of Trumps, as his quipped “One of the greatest actresses of all time, only a blithering idiot would think otherwise, Meryl Streep.” Brilliant. You can see more of Stephen Fry’s jokes here.

During the ceremony, La La Land was the most successful, winning five awards, including Best Director, Best Film and Best Actress, making it even more of a front runner than before to sweep up at the Oscars. Other winners include Dev Patel for Best Supporting Actor, Viola Davis for Best Supporting Actress and Kubo and the Two Strings for Best Animated Feature, beating two Disney films.

Not too many surprises altogether this year however I didn’t quite get all of my predictions correct unfortunately. Here were mine for last night, getting four out of six, which isn’t that bad! Anyway, we’ll see if I can improve upon my guesses for the Oscars. Here’s the list of winners in full.

The 89th Academy Award Nominations and My Predictions

And the nominees are…

Here we have it, the Oscar nominations for 2017. What we have is a mostly predictable list of nominations. However there seems to be something wrong with the Best Actress category. It would seem Meryl Streep’s standard middle of the road performance is better than that of Amy Adams’ in Arrival. Really?? It’s such an insult to what is one of the best performances of the past 12 months but that’s merely my opinion.

With 14 nominations, La La Land has matched the most nominations ever garnered by one film and it’s now the most Oscar nominated musical. It’s no real surprise after it’s been so well-received by critics and audiences alike as well as gaining other awards and nominations during this season. Anyway, with that said, see below for the fill list of nominations as well as my predictions in bold.

The ceremony takes place on the 26th February and is hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Stay tuned for my live blog taking place on the night for those of you willing to stay up until around 5am, GMT.

BAFTA 2017 Nominations

With the Golden Globes done and dusted, it’s time for something a little more prestigious wouldn’t you say? Here are the nominations for the 2017 BAFTA awards. Taking pole position is La La Land with 11 nominations with Nocturnal Animals and Arrival not far behind getting 9 each. It’s no surprise that the buzz around these films has amounted to such acclaim with critics and awards. All of the have such impressive merits, but I say the one to watch is La La Land. Here are the nominations in full, the BAFTA ceremony takes place on Sunday 12 February.

Golden Globe Nominations 2017

Award season is well and truly on the way with the recent event that was the Critics Choice Awards who dished out yet more shooting star trophies. Soon enough it’ll be the BAFTAs and Oscars taking place, but before the “prestigious” award ceremonies happen, let’s slum it for a bit with the Golden Globes. This week the nominations for next year’s awards were released, and it looks like La La Land is taking the lead, but for some stupid and inexplicable reason, Dev Patel have been shoved into the Supporting Actor category. Why? Some one tell me why? He’s the lead dammit!

golden-globe-awards

Anyway, this year we’ll see Jimmy Fallon hosting so it’s no doubt that this will be an entertaining event, with a nicer tone than this years. Although I didn’t mind Ricky Gervais, he did, after four times hosting, piss a lot of people off. No surprise but still funny.
