    Apologies if there is already a thread. I did a search and nothing came up so don’t think there is. Am happy to be redirected if necessary 🙂

    If not, let’s start predicting.

    Here are my first guesses:

    Best Film
    La La Land
    Moonlight
    Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk
    Silence
    Jackie
    Spoiler: Sully

    Best Director
    Damien Chazelle (La La Land)
    Ang Lee (Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk)
    Martin Scorsese (Silence)
    Pablo Larrain (Jackie)
    Clint Eastwood (Sully)
    Spoiler: Robert Zemeckis (Allied)

    Best Actor
    Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea)
    Ryan Gosling (La La Land)
    Tom Hanks (Sully)
    Jake Gyllenhaal (Nocturnal Animals)
    Brad Pitt (Allied)
    Spoiler: David Oyelowo (A United Kingdom)

    Best Actress
    Emma Stone (La La Land)
    Natalie Portman (Jackie)
    Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins)
    Amy Adams (Arrival)
    Ruth Negga (Loving)
    Spoiler: Emily Blunt (The Girl on the Train)

    Best Supporting Actor
    Liam Neeson (Silence)
    Mahershala Ali (Moonlight)
    Hugh Grant (Florence Foster Jenkins)
    Timothy Spall (Denial)
    Dev Patel (Lion)
    Spoiler: Alan Rickman (Eye in the Sky)

    Best Supporting Actress
    Viola Davis (Fences)
    Naomie Harris (Moonlight)
    Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea)
    Felicity Jones (A Monster Calls)
    Nicole Kidman (Lion)
    Spoiler: Marion Cotillard (Allied)

    Best Original Screenplay
    Manchester by the Sea
    La La Land
    Moonlight
    Allied
    Jackie
    Spoiler: Florence Foster Jenkins

    Best Adapted Screenplay
    Silence
    Nocturnal Animals
    Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk
    Sully
    Lion
    Spoiler: Fences

    Outstanding British Film
    Florence Foster Jenkins
    Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk
    Allied
    The Girl with All the Gifts
    A United Kingdom
    A Streetcat Named Bob
    Spoiler: Bridget Jones’s Baby

    I am concerned at how few British stars I found myself predicting as for them to choose so few would seem out of character, hence I’ve made most of the spoilers British but still in doubt.

    Why do people keep putting Dev Patel in Supporting? It pissed me off when the SAGs put him in Supporting for Slumdog Millionaire when he was the MAIN CHARACTER!!! It looks like he’ll be the main character again in Lion (though you never know). Do they just inherently hate Dev Patel and don’t want to put him lead?

    I heard that he doesn’t appear until well into the movie, because the beginning is all him as a little kid. I don’t know though, I haven’t seen it.

    Because she won a French film prize hence all of Europe is just as enamored?

    Lol I’ve been through this with you already. I just feel this movie is going to get things going her way. You just know it’ll happen sooner or later as she keeps working with the right people. Since I’m sensing a campaign already, I’m assuming this is it – and Bafta is not going to deny her this moment.

    No it’s because he doesn’t appear in Lion until an hour into the film.

    I am not sure if it will end up being clarified as such but for now Wikipedia tells me it’s a British-American-Chinese co-production so I am predicting it to do a Gravity and get in despite the film not really being British at all.

    She’s pretty nailed on for a lead campaign. Far too much competition.

    Billy Lynn almost certainly won’t be a British film. There are two ways to be a British film.

    The first is to be a certified co-production via a co-production treaty. The UK only has these treaties with certain countries, the US and China (the other production companies involved with Billy Lynn) are not among them.

    The second way is to pass the BFI cultural test. (http://www.bfi.org.uk/film-industry/british-certification-tax-relief/cultural-test-video-games/summary-points-cultural-test-film) This is how Gravity qualified as it was filmed in the UK, the special effect studios were all UK companies and Alfonso Cuaron the director (and writer) a UK resident (as well as having a British composer, producer and editor). Billy Lynn doesn’t come close to being British.
