Awards season is in full swing, and once again, filmmakers and fans are trying to figure out whether previous winning films will disappear at the Oscars as well. In this sense, the BAFTA awards are considered an almost certain prognosis. For the past five years, Best Picture has also won an Oscar at the UK Film Awards. So which movie has the best chance?

And once again this weekend the elite of the film industry came together to honor the best films and actors of the year. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts, or BAFTA for short, gave the award in London, which has been considered the most reliable indicator of the Oscars in recent years. All the films that have been recognized as best picture at the BAFTA Awards in the last five years also won the Oscars in what is possibly the most important category. After yesterday’s award ceremony, high hopes can be raised for the world’s most important film award above all Richard Linklater with his movie “Boyhood” do.

Eddie Redmayne wins BAFTA award for best actor

And winning the BAFTA award is not unfounded. After all, the gigantic project “Boyhood” was filmed at great expense for more than twelve years. In the film, director Richard Linklater accompanies a boy throughout his childhood and puberty, and has been receiving award after award since the 2014 Berlinale premiere. The director now has to make a little more space on his mantelpiece, because previous awards are now accompanied by a BAFTA award. “Boyhood” won the British film award for best picture, Linklater received a trophy for best director and Patricia Arquette was voted best supporting actress. If you believe in the meaning of the BAFTAs for the Oscars, the “Boyhood” crew should be delighted.

BAFTA Awards 2015: “Grand Budapest Hotel” Beats “Boyhood”

While “Boyhood” won two of the night’s biggest BAFTA awards in the “Best Picture” and “Best Director” categories, “Grand Budapest Hotel” surpassed Linklater’s work in terms of numbers. Five BAFTA Awards went to Wes Anderson’s tragic comedy, for original screenplay, music, and costume design and production. In terms of actors, the previous winners of this year’s awards season could prevail again. Eddie Redmayne won a coveted BAFTA Award for Best Actor for his role as Stephen Hawking on The Discovery of Infinity. and managed to prevail over his compatriot Benedict Cumberbatch, who was nominated for “The Imitation Game.” The biography of physicist Stephen Hawking, who was also present at the award ceremony, was also recognized as the best British production. As was the case with the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards Julianne Moore for her role as an Alzheimer’s patient in “Still Alice” also awarded at the BAFTA awards.

The BAFTAs did well for the past five years, predicting the Oscar winner. If you take all the awards from this year’s awards season together, Julianne Moore, Eddie Redmayne and Richard Linklater should have a very special place in your trophy collection.
