    Hello guys,

    I wrongly predicted Nolan to win the DGA, I thought that being his fourth nomination he might be able to pull that one off. However, I am quite surprised that pretty much no one of the so called experts is predicting him to win at home turf. My guess is that 3B is much stronger than TSOW at BAFTAs (I think 3B will win picture, actress, supporting actor and original screenplay) so Del Toro might have trouble to win there, even though he’ll win the Oscar.

    What do you think?

    I have Dunkirk taking Picture and Director (along with 3 crafts) at BAFTA. I think they will give 3B Best British Film and Orignal Screenplay (along with the two acting). But who knows, I loved Dunkirk and may be a little blinded.

    I find it ironic that you’re trying to question the validity of the experts by calling them “so called experts” when you’re the one that predicted Nolan at DGA when del Toro was so obviously going to win there. And del Toro won’t have any problem winning at BAFTA.

    Nolan could win and Dunkirk may even sweep ; the war looms large in the British psyche and patriotism , like Nationalism and Religion, can really influence the voters
    It seems more likely that 3 Bills wins BP , but Nolan could still pull of a win as BD …it’s difficult to call , but only SHAPE not winning BP seems like an easy call !

    I think Dunkirk could win Best Film at the BAFTAs, but anyone except Del Toro winning Director is a verrrry long shot.

    I’m not predicting this, but I definitively wouldn’t be surprised if it happens. I’m not sure if they’ll love The Shape of Water that much.

    I am predicting Nolan too, but to the pundits’ credit, The Shape of Water has the most nominations, including acting and writing, unlike Dunkirk.  The other thing is that we give BAFTA way too much credit for having independent thinking.  When someone is sweeping, they do not really get in the way.  Ben Affleck, Alfonso Cuarón and Damien Chazelle won DGA, Critics’ Choice and the Globe, then swept up the BAFTA as well.  The Revenant won the Globe and DGA for Best Director and BAFTA did not nominate the Critics’ Choice winner, so The Revenant easily swept up the BAFTA for Best Director.  The only year that BAFTA has diverged from the momentum with the whole BAFTA academy voting was when they awarded went for Boyhood over DGA winner Birdman, but Boyhood had already won Critics’ Choice and the Globe.  Guillermo Del Toro has a much stronger consensus.

    Del Toro is the favorite here. I mean, lets look at the past BAFTA Best Director winners:

    2016 – La La Land

    2015 – The Revenant

    2014 – Boyhood

    2013 – Gravity

    2012 – Argo

    2011 – The Artist

    2010 – The Social Network

    2009 – The Hurt Locker

    2008 – Slumdog Millionaire

    2007 – No Country for Old Men

    In the last ten years, the BAFTA Best Director winner won the DGA or Globe.  In fact 8/10 of them won the DGA.

    What makes people say Nolan here? Del Toro  won the BFCA, Globe, DGA, and 10 critics circle best director prizes.

    Honestly, I think Dunkirk’s big haul will be in the technical categories.

    I’m predicting SoW to win picture, but Nolan director. I don’t know, just feel like brits would like a lot more Dunkirk than Americans, since it’s a more typical awards film.
    Maybe is a very basic justification but if it happens I would be very proud of that prediction.

    Dunkirk is a more award film then SoW ?

    Apart from the genre, Dunkirk is completely opposite an Oscar-bait movie. SoW is a much more baited film IMO.
