BAFTAs winners: ‘Boyhood’ is Best Picture, ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ takes five, ‘Birdman’ just one

At Sunday’s BAFTA Awards, “Boyhood” was only in contention for five awards but won three big prizes: Best Picture, Director (Richard Linklater) and Best Supporting Actress (Patricia Arquette). The BAFTA Best Picture has gone on to claim the same prize at the Oscars for the last six years running. 

The Grand Budapest Hotel” did better than we expected, winning five of its leading 11 nominations: Original Screenplay, Costume Design, Makeup & Hairstyling, Production Design and Score. 

The Theory of Everything” won three of its 10 bids: Best Actor (Eddie Redmayne), Adapted Screenplay and British Film. 

And “Whiplash” did well too, going three for five by claiming Best Supporting Actor (J.K. Simmons), Editing and Sound. 

Despite sweeping the top three guilds stateside (PGA, SAG, DGA), “Birdman” won just one of its 10 bids here: Best Cinematography

And “The Imitation Game” lost all nine of its races. 

As expected, Julianne Moore (“Still Alice“) continued her winning streak, adding another Best Actress trophy to her crowded mantle.

Oscars frontrunner “Citizenfour” was named Best Documentary while “Ida” also solidified its frontrunner status, picking up another prize for Best Foreign Language Film. 

The Lego Movie,” snubbed at the Oscars, won Best Animated Feature here.

And while Mike Leigh‘s “Mr. Turner” lost all four of its races, he did receive the Fellowship (the BAFTA equivalent of a lifetime achievement award).
