2018 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘Dunkirk’ wins at 4 of 10, ‘The Shape of Water’ at 3

2018 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘Dunkirk’ wins at 4 of 10, ‘The Shape of Water’ at 3
Of the nine Oscar nominees for Best Picture, “Dunkirk” is faring best with the guild awards. It has won with four of the 10 to date (casting directors, film editors, sound editors and visual effects wizards). It is in contention at two of the remaining three groups (costume designers, sound mixers) but missed out on any recognition from the makeup artists & hair stylists. Those three guilds will hand out awards during final voting for the Oscars, which kicks off on Feb. 20 for eight days.

While “Dunkirk” racked up nominations from 11 of the 13 guilds (it was also snubbed by the writers), “The Shape of Water” did it one better, with only the Visual Effects Society overlooking this fantasy film in its nominations. It won with three groups to date: the directors, producers and art directors. And it is in contention at all three of the upcoming awards.

Spoilers for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”.

After BAFTAs, are four acting races at Oscars a done deal?

After BAFTAs, are four acting races at Oscars a done deal?
The BAFTA Awards gave Gary Oldman, Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney yet another chance to practice their Oscar acceptance speeches. Each member of this quartet has taken home every one of the major precursors this awards season. They started their winning ways with the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards in mid January followed by the SAG Awards at the end of last month and now the BAFTAs. No group has pulled off such a sweep since the British academy moved ahead of the Oscars in 2000.

Oldman has been the Best Actor favorite all season long for his transformation into Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour.” The veteran character actor has only contended at the Oscars once before, losing his 2011 Best Actor bid for “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” to Jean Dujardin who headlined the Best Picture champ “The Artist.”

Baftas 2018: The best speeches

Baftas 2018: The best speeches
#TimesUp was praised by many winners, as was the strength of British filmmaking talent.

The 71st British Academy of Film and Televison Arts awards took place on Sunday 18 February, with the gender equality #TimesUp movement the dominant theme of the evening (along with some well-timed jokes from Joanna Lumley).

Below are some of the interesting quotes and speeches from the ceremony.

Joanna Lumley - host

“This ceremony is not just about the famous people…but let’s have a look at the famous people here tonight!”

Gary Oldman’s ability to transform himself was visible in his other roles this year - Yoda, Wonder Woman and Lego Batman”

“Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool - the reason all of tonight’s nominees have been house-hunting on Merseyside”

”The exceedingly charming Hugh Grant is in the building. Quite how Hugh managed to portray a vain and egocentric actor is honestly

The full list of winners at the Bafta film awards

After suffering a backlash over its depiction of Sam Rockwell’s racist cop character and struggling ever so slightly in the guild awards and Oscar nominations, there was the sense that Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri badly needed a win. And the Baftas duly obliged, handing Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy drama awards in five categories. Not a landslide haul by any means, but impressive nevertheless given the sense that Bafta voters were otherwise spreading the wealth fairly widely. Now McDonagh and co must hope that this plum haul will convince academy voters to give the film a second look before they hand in their ballots at the end of the month.

2018 BAFTA Awards backstage: Sam Rockwell reflects on Best Supporting Actor win for ‘Three Billboards’

2018 BAFTA Awards backstage: Sam Rockwell reflects on Best Supporting Actor win for ‘Three Billboards’
Sam Rockwell is looking more like a lock for the Oscar after picking up yet another Best Supporting Actor award at the BAFTAs on Sunday (Feb. 18) for his searing portrayal of a racist cop in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” He has already laid claim to the SAG, Critics’ Choice and Golden Globe awards. With his film winning five awards in all at these precursor prizes, the actor was in a buoyant mood backstage for our interview.

He heaped praise on co-star (and Best Actress winner) Frances McDormand and writer/director Martin McDonagh, who won for his original script. McDonagh also picked up prizes for producing this character study, which became only the second in BAFTA history to win both Best Picture and Best British Film (after “The King’s Speech”).

BAFTA goes big for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”

Yesterday afternoon, the British Academy more or less set the stage for Oscar, as the BAFTA awards were given out. With that final precursor, voting for the Academy Awards will begin tomorrow, and that’s where decisions will actually be made. Academy members will have BAFTA results in their back pocket, and they could loom large. If so, that may be a very good sign for Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. The British voters had a number of hometown favorites to choose from, and went with that one, instead of contenders like Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk (a bit surprisingly, though I had predicted it to come up just short) and Joe Wright’s Darkest Hour. Below you will be able to see what BAFTA did in full, but they clearly were big fans of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. It took home five prizes, including the top one of Best Film.

BAFTA Winners + Precursor Consensus = No Surprises on Oscar Night?

by Nathaniel R

Kaluuya wins "Rising Star"With only 13 days left until Oscar, the race in most of the marquee categories is sadly settled. BAFTA, held today in London, cemented the frontrunners honoring the exact same actors as the Critics Choice Awards, SAG, and Golden Globes. It's Gary Oldman, Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell, and Alison Janney for the Oscars. Engrave the statues now. That's just too much consensus for Oscar to overthrow though we're personally baffled that none of that quartet's strong (and arguably better) competitors managed to put up a fight. What's more it's the first time in history when there's been no variation whatsoever in the prizes despite none of that foursome winning any of the top critics awards (Nyfcc, Lafca, and Nsfc). Usually there's at least one 'we're-doing-our-own-thing' moment within the four categories in the televised precursors. Not this year. What happened to the tough battle we

BAFTA Awards Rubber Stamps Some Oscar Frontrunners, Upsets Others

Years ago, the British Academy’s BAFTA Awards made for an interesting foil to the stateside Oscars, but the ceremony has evolved into more of a bellwether event.

For a time, the London pageant was held after the Oscars. But at the turn of the millennium, it finally found permanent fixture amid the other precursor pit stops that lead to Hollywood’s big night. Procedurally, the Brits used to delegate nomination duties in most categories to the entire membership, while the individual branches would determine the winners. But in 2012, the organization made vast changes to protocol, shifting to a system that mirrored the American Academy’s (i.e. the inverse, whereby branches decide nominees and the full membership decides the winners).

The result has been an annual show that can provide the most holistic set of clues into the Oscar outcome. In the film editing category, for instance, BAFTA has presaged wins for “Whiplash” and “Hacksaw Ridge” when
