Gravity _sandra-bullock

Tonight Steve McQueen’s slavery drama 12 Years a Slave took best film and best actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor at this year’s British Academy Film Awards. With a total of six prizes, Gravity was the night’s most-awarded film, sweeping up four technical categories as well as the gongs for outstanding British film and best director for Alfonso Cuarón.

American Hustle claimed three awards: best original screenplay, best makeup/hair and an award for Jennifer Lawrence as best supporting actress. Cate Blanchett won best actress for the title role in Blue Jasmine, while newcomer Barkhad Adbi was named best supporting actor for his part as a Somali pirate in Captain Phillips.

Gravity‘s six awards Outstanding British Film, Original Music, Cinematography, Sound and Special Visual Effects with Alfonso Cuarón winning for Director. The Great Gatsby was another multiple winner in the technical categories, winning best production design and best costume design.

Director and Writer Kieran Evans received the award for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer for his first feature film Kelly + Victor.Adapted Screenplay was awarded to Jeff Pope and Steve Coogan for Philomena, Steve Coogan also produced and starred in the film.The Great Beauty won the award for Film Not in the English Language and the BAFTA for Editing went to Rush.

Director Peter Greenaway whose films include The Draughtsman’s Contract and The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover received the award for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema. The Fellowship, the highest honour the Academy can bestow, was presented to Helen Mirren by HRH The Duke of Cambridge.

So was tonight’s BAFTAs an indication of what’s going to happen in a couple of weeks when the Oscars are held? Will Dallas Buyers Club or Spike Jonze’s Her both films not nominated for BAFTAs  steal the limelight from tonight’d big winners or Martin Scorsese’s Wolf Of Wall Street get some recognition from it’s peers? All will be revealed on 2nd March with the 86th Academy Awards will be held.
