The day after and I have to say the BAFTA was pretty good to me and my favorites. When your top 3 films of the year are Banshees, TAR and All Quiet on the Western Front, you have no reason to complain.
I adore that Barry Keoghan and Kerry Condon won supporting actors and, of course, Cate Blanchett winning for TAR was the night’s highlight for me. Colin Farrell was my choice for lead actor, but I enjoyed Elvis mainly for Austin Butler’s performance so I’m cool with his win.
All Quiet on the Western Front surprised with it’s seven ? I think ? wins, especially for Director. Could Oscar surprise us with ‘extra’ love for this film?
Of course, and this is just being honest, I was happy that Everything Everywhere All at Once almost got shut out. I know many, many folk love this one. I watched it 2 and 1/2 times – in the middle of my third watch and realized the light bulb was not going off. But, I bet it does better on Oscar night for you fans that ‘get it.”
I do wonder if the preferential ballot might hurt Everything because if I was voting it would be 9 or 10 on my ballot. We should see… love the awards!ReplyCopy URL

I get people complaining about diversity, but Blanchett and Condon deserved their awards. Keoghan pretty clearly shouldn’t have won, but of course Zoe Rose Bryant won’t speak a thing against him.ReplyCopy URLFebruary 20, 2023 at 2:03 pm #1205311285
Major categories, Baftas vs. Oscars
Power of the Dog 2 = 1
Coda 2=3 (+1)
1917 2=0 (-2)
Favorite 3=1 (-2)
3 Billboards 4=2 (-2)
La La Land 3=2
Lion 2=0 (-2)
Boyhood 3=1 (-2)
Theory of Everything 3=2
Slave 2=3 (+1)
American Hustle 2=0 (-2)
Social Network 2=1
King’s Speech 5=4
Hurt Locker 3=3
The biggest drop in the expanded era is -2. So I guess All Quiet (3) for Writing, Banshees (3) for Writing.ReplyCopy URL

Won’t take much stock in many of these winners since apparently this group watched a total of what 3 movies?

Maybe, but if the jury was looking to pick some big name nominees in under seen films to fill out the categories, wouldn’t they have picked Foy or Buckley or Samantha Morton over Mulligan? (I know Carey has two Oscar nominations, but so does Morton, and I don’t know that she’s a bigger name than Buckley or Foy— maybe she is, but you couldn’t tell that from the box office of the mostly excellent films in which she has starred.)
As soon as Mulligan went supporting, Morton’s chances were unfortunately tanked. I’m just not sure if Women Talking was liked enough in addition to its late premiere and poor promo. It looks like Whishaw could’ve been in the top 7 on the longlists, but he very well could’ve been #6 or #7. She Said at least had a steady campaign along the season, including in the UK, and Mulligan was in a good position to benefit as a co-lead among other performances that were truly supporting.
This all kind of begs the question of what the point is of even publishing the longlists for acting now. Three of the nominations are already set, and the longlisting jury adds three names that the nominating jury doesn’t even have to touch.ReplyCopy URL

Mulligan’s long-list mention felt a lot like a reverse Ana de Armas in No Time to Die to me. Last year voters were struggling to fill out their acting ballots in the supporting categories and just deviated to the blockbusters and awards tentpoles they had already seen. This year they just did that and then looked at what the Globes nominated to see what films and performances they could seek out to watch and then include.
I think this is in part why Women Talking (which the Globes snubbed for best drama) and The Fabelmans (which missed nominations for Hirsch and Dano at the Globes and then long-list mentions for them at BAFTA) ended up performing the way they did on the long-list.ReplyCopy URL

Dumb comment. Plenty of diversity in the nominees. Do you want set quota of POC winners each year?ReplyCopy URL

They use to call that Affirmative Action. Not a great solution but pretty sad that it’s often needed to promote and encourage fairness and equality.ReplyCopy URL

I actually prefer Keoghan but that win is shady, there’s no reason for it. I get that they can feel free to go with whatever but Quan literally swept everything else at that point, if he was white they wouldn’t have ignored that.ReplyCopy URL

They obviously didn’t like THE MOVIE. It’s an American movie about silly multiverses which many Bafta voters probably weren’t excited about. Why does it all have to boil down to race with some posters.ReplyCopy URLFebruary 20, 2023 at 5:40 pm #1205311566
b/c they went full pure white with winners.

They didn’t like the movie and yet gave it 10 nominations, winning Editing. They also loved Banshees and yet passed over its most acclaimed performance (most acclaimed male performance of the year in fact), so yeah, they could’ve easily given Supporting Actor to Quan over Keoghan, who even had a co star to compete with.ReplyCopy URLNot now
