    The Bafta Awards are going to take place next Sunday. Is Bafta going to go with the frontrunners – Casey Affleck, Emma Stone, Ali and Viola Davis? Or are we in for a treat and get some surprise winners (maybe some british ones – Andrew Garfield, Dev Partel or Naomie Harris (won the London Critics over Viola Davis)? What about Picture? Could La La Land lose to Arrival, Nocturnal Animals or Moonlight?

    Would love to hear everyone’s theory behind their picks for Foreign Language Film and Documentary. Those are driving me crazy.

    Laszlo Nemes got the director price from the London Film Critics last month, beating out Jenkins, Leoch and Chazelle. So hopefully his movie can beat Toni Erdmann (and gets some justice for the way german newspapers have treated that movie).

    I don’t know the reasons why German newspapers didn’t like the film, but I sympathize with them. I also think it’s awful (as a friend calls it, “Concentration camp: the theme ride”). Toni Erdmann is by far the best of these nominees, but for some reason I don’t think it will win (although I assume culturally the Brits are still more likely to “get” the film than Americans).

    I bet Naomie Harris prevails.

    Julieta shouldn’t be underestimated in FNITEL either. Almodovar is loved by Bafta and has five Baftas, one for directing, one for writing and three FNITEL. French & Spanish language films do well in general in this category since 2000, 6 Spanish language films have won and 4 French language films, no other language has more than one winner in that time frame. I’m betting Son of Saul had enough impact to take this but Julieta is my second choice.

    Visual effects is another that could go to any of the five. Arrival is second in the nominations count and probably the only one of the five that doesn’t have to worry about being under seen, Fantastic Beasts is a start of a new chapter of Britain’s most successful film franchise and has four other nominations, Doctor Strange has two other nominations and British star, Star Wars won last year, has a British star, all the visual effects work is based in the UK and topped the UK boxoffice for 2016 and The Jungle Book is the one that everyone is predicting. I’m going with Rogue One without much hope of being right.

    I’m going Son of Saul, no real reason only because it did well last year. and 8 Days a Week for doc because its the Beatles and these are the BAFTAS.

    Son of Saul is an incredible movie (not really sure why I picked it as one of my transatlantic flight films, but whatever, it was a good choice), I can buy it bringing some major heat, especially since it was so successful. But the other films nominated are also extremely good. It’ll be a tough call for sure.

    Julieta is the first non-Bollywood foreign language film to gross £1million at the UK box office since Les Intouchables.

    I think La La Land will definitely win Best Picture. But for anyone who isn’t the biggest La La Land fan, I think you might like this video:

    Well this is something to certainly consider.

    I can’t see BAFTA going for Ali. They will realise that this performance is over-hyped and that he’s only winning awards because Moonlight is seen as a socially important film and, to some extent, to make up for “Oscars So White”. Expect Grant or Patel. I’m really not sure about Davis winning either, Harris seems a good bet. Affleck and Stone to win the leading categories.
