“The Shape of Water” is the most nominated film at the 2018 BAFTA Awards with 12, but according to our predictions it won’t be the biggest winner. We’re betting on “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” to top these kudos as it did the Golden Globes and SAG Awards in the last two months. “Three Billboards” is forecast to win five awards out of its nine nominations, including Best Picture. Do you agree? Scroll down to see our complete predictions by film.
These predictions are based on the combined forecasts of more than 1,700 users who have entered their picks in our predictions center in advance of the awards on February 18. And according to our collective wisdom “Three Billboards” will claim Best Picture, Best Actress (Frances McDormand), Best Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell), Best Original Screenplay (Martin McDonagh) and Best British Film.
But “Shape of Water” will be the next biggest winner at an event where we’re expecting voters to spread the wealth. It gets leading odds in three races: Best Director (Guillermo Del Toro), Best Production Design and Best Score.
Only two other films are projected to win multiple awards, and they both happen to address the same British military campaign during World War II. “Darkest Hour,” about Winston Churchill‘s leadership during the evacuation of Allied soldiers from the beaches of France, is expected to prevail in two of its nine races: Best Actor (Gary Oldman) and Best Makeup and Hair. Meanwhile “Dunkirk,” which tells the same story from the soldiers’ perspectives, will win two out of eight: Best Film Editing and Best Sound.
