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.
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.
“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).
