2015 BAFTA Results

Stephen Fry kicked off the 2015 BAFTA results and last night’s revelatons certainly kept the Oscar race exciting with hot favourite, Birdman, surprisingly only receiving one award for cinematographer Emmanuel Lubzeki. Meanwhile, Boyhood took the lead by winning 3 of its 5 nominations including Best Film, Director and Supporting Actress. The film’s director, Richard Linklater unfortunately didn’t make it to London to claim the award in person but no doubt we’ll see him at the Oscars now that he has a BAFTA and Golden Globe tipping the prestigious award in his favour.

 

Boyhood take home the awards for Best Film, Director and Supporting Actress.

Eddie Redmayne deservedly won the BAFTA for Best Actor with his ridiculously fantastic performance as astrophysicist, Professor Stephen Hawking in the moving The Theory of Everything. The film saw three awards on the night including Outstanding British Film and Best Adapted Screenplay though The Grand Budapest Hotel claimed the most with prizes for its Original Music, Production Design, Makeup and Hair as well Original Screenplay.

Julianne Moore saw the only award for Still Alice as Best Leading Actress, whilst Whiplash claimed a statuette for three categories including Best Supporting Actor with J.K. Simmons, Sound and Editing. Meanwhile everything is awesome for The Lego Movie which took the title of Best Animated Film.
