The BAFTA Awards takes place across the weekend of April 10 and 11. Eight trophies will be handed out on Saturday with the other 17, including Best Picture, doled out on Sunday. The academy starts canvassing its members for their final votes for the 2021 Oscars on Thursday (April 15). That balloting period only runs for six days. The 93rd Academy Awards are on Sunday, April 25.
Since the BAFTAs moved up in 2001 to take place before the Oscars, these kudos have foreseen eight of the 20 Best Picture Oscar winners. The British academy previewed the Oscar wins for “Gladiator” (2001), “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” (2004) and “Slumdog Millionaire” (2009). And they got it right in the first five years of the expanded Best Picture race: “The Hurt Locker” (2010), “The King’s Speech” (2011), “The Artist” (2012), “Argo” (2013) and “12 Years a Slave” (2014).
