Best Film
“12 Years a Slave” – WINNER
“American Hustle”
“Captain Phillips”
“Gravity”
“Philomena”

Comment: Very much predicted. Out of the five, I have watched ‘Captain Phillips’ and ‘Gravity’ fully, and ’12 Years A Slave’ partially. ’12 Years A Slave’ will win best picture with not much competition in Oscars too.

Outstanding British Film
“Gravity” – WINNER
“Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom”
“Philomena”
“Rush”
“Saving Mr. Banks”
“The Selfish Giant”

Comment: Expected. This brilliant and innovative science-fiction thriller has to be honoured.

Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer
Kieran Evans (Director/Writer) – “Kelly + Victor” – WINNER
Colin Carberry (Writer), Glenn Patterson (Writer) – “Good Vibrations”
Kelly Marcel (Writer) – “Saving Mr. Banks”
Paul Wright (Director/Writer), Polly Stokes (Producer) – “For Those in Peril”
Scott Graham (Director/Writer) – “Shell”

Film Not in the English Language
“The Great Beauty” – WINNER
“The Act of Killing”
“Blue Is The Warmest Colour”
“Metro Manila”
“Wadjda”

Documentary
“The Act of Killing” – WINNER
“The Armstrong Lie”
“Blackfish”
“Tim’s Vermeer”
“We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks”

Animated Film
“Frozen” – WINNER
“Despicable Me 2”
“Monsters University”

Comment: Yup. Out of these three, ‘Frozen’ easily stood out. The other two nominees are just average.

Director
Alfonso Cuaron – “Gravity” – WINNER
Steve McQueen – “12 Years a Slave”
David O. Russell – “American Hustle”
Paul Greengrass – “Captain Phillips”
Martin Scorsese – “The Wolf of Wall Street”

Comment: Brilliant directing work by Alfonso in ‘Gravity’. Very deserving to win.

Original Screenplay
Eric Warren Singer, David O. Russell – “American Hustle” – WINNER
Woody Allen – “Blue Jasmine”
Alfonso Cuaron, Jonas Cuaron – “Gravity”
Joel Coen, Ethan Coen – “Inside Llewyn Davis”
Bob Nelson – “Nebraska”

Adapted Screenplay
Steve Coogan, Jeff Pope – “Philomena” – WINNER
John Ridley – “12 Years a Slave”
Richard LaGravenese – “Behind The Candelabra”
Billy Ray – “Captain Phillips”

Leading Actor
Chiwetel Ejiofor – “12 Years a Slave” – WINNER
Bruce Dern – “Nebraska”
Christian Bale – “American Hustle”
Leonardo DiCaprio – “The Wolf of Wall Street”
Tom Hanks – Captain Phillips”

Comment: I actually preferred Leonardo diCaprio. In upcoming Oscars, it will be intense battle between Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave) and Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club). I think the latter’s film couldn’t be nominated this year as it is not released in Britain yet. But it seems like the latter is the current Oscars’ favourite.

Leading Actress
Cate Blanchett – “Blue Jasmine” – WINNER
Amy Adams – “American Hustle”
Emma Thompson – “Saving Mr. Banks”
Judi Dench – “Philomena”
Sandra Bullock – “Gravity”

Comment: Another predicted outcome. She will face no or very little competition in Oscars this year too. All the nominees here had won Oscars before, so everything is fair.

Supporting Actor
Barkhad Abdi – “Captain Phillips” – WINNER
Bradley Cooper – “American Hustle”
Daniel Bruhl – “Rush”
Matt Damon – “Behind The Candelabra”
Michael Fassbender – “12 Years a Slave”

Comment: Quite a surprising win. But I do feel glad too for Barkhad Abdi. First cinematic debut and he won best supporting actor. Wonderful! He is the captain now!

Supporting Actress
Jennifer Lawrence – “American Hustle” – WINNER
Julia Roberts – “August: Osage County”
Lupita Nyong’o – “12 Years a Slave”
Oprah Winfrey – “The Butler”
Sally Hawkins – “Blue Jasmine”

Comment: Another expected result. Predicted to win in Oscars too. 

Original Music
“Gravity” – Steven Price – WINNER
“12 Years a Slave” – Hans Zimmer
“The Book Thief” – John Williams
“Captain Phillips” – Henry Jackman
“Saving Mr. Banks” – Thomas Newman

Comment: Happy for ‘Gravity’ to win. The music in this movie gave me goosebumps and successfully brought up the excitement and intensity of the film. 

Cinematography
“Gravity” – Emmanuel Lubezki – WINNER
“12 Years a Slave” – Sean Bobbitt
“Captain Phillips” – Barry Ackroyd

‘Gravity’ won 6 awards, becoming the biggest winner of the night, while ’12 Years A Slave’ is crowned Best Picture overall.  Congratulations to all the winners! What do you think of the result of this year’s BAFTA Film Awards? For me, it’s great and not much surprising. Most outcomes are predicted. The deserving wins. Now, let’s wait for the 86th Academy Awards (Oscars) which will take place on 2nd March 2014.
