If Parasite wins BAFTA after everyone here predicted 1917…February 1, 2020 at 5:30 am #1203323452
I wouldn’t be unhappy at all if Parasite were to win; I am predicting 1917 to win – they are the two best films I saw in 2019 and both would be richly deserving of the win!
London is 5 hours ahead where I live so I am thinking the awards will start being handed out a little after 3 p.m. EST? Hoping for a live blog on here! (: Mostly I want an upset in Supporting Actress! (: (Anyone but Dern!) (;February 1, 2020 at 5:55 am #1203323502
<p style=”text-align: left;”>I just looked at the stats for the London Film Criitc’s Circke and their accuracy in predicting BAFTA’s Best Film winner is quite strong: 7 out of 10 this decade. They’re also 6 out of 10 in predicting BAFTA’s Best Director award. I’m still predicting 1917 and Mendes, but I wouldn’t be surprised anymore if Parasite pulled an upset. We all thought BAFTA would reward the British film last year and instead they went for the Foreign film, so there’s president for this.</p>
Even though I’ve talked shit abotu BAFTA’s accuracy, I still think winning would be good for Parasite. Every Best Picture winner this decade has had atbleats one major precursor under it’s belt, and Parasite has none so far. Plus 1917 will still be the soft frontrunner with Golden Globe, PGA, and DGA.

I mean, the London Awards are voted by critics, so isn’t it just normal that Parasite won there? It was clearly more acclaimed than 1917.
It may be that 7 times out of 10 the critics winner aligned with the industry winner, but that doesn’t mean it will be the case this year.February 1, 2020 at 9:40 am #1203323737
Guys, I would take the LFCCA winners and the Screen Daily article featuring the anonymous BAFTA/AMPAS voters ballots with a pinch of salt. It is very unlikely that Parasite beats 1917 for BP or BD here. It has a shot at Screenplay though.February 1, 2020 at 10:37 am #1203323793
Just done my BAFTA predictions. Could easily be switching a few of the selections around; but my Super Bets are on Brad Pitt for Best Supporting Actor, and For Sama for Best British Film.
Couldn’t quite bring myself to place Jessie Buckley above Renée, when push came to shove. But Wild Rose really strikes me as a very, very BAFTA-friendly film.
I’ve posted the link below on another thread (and the background to it) but can’t resist posting it again…
(And, of course, so many years later: Jessie featured in Judy!)
