Stay with me here. It seems like the kind of movie that BAFTA would enjoy-a tender, moving, realistic drama. I can definitely see it winning over something like La La Land. What do you think?February 9, 2017 at 7:40 am #1202006598

I would love that. MBTS is my favourite movie of the year, so I would be overjoyed for it to win Best Picture. However I dont think it has a shot at Best Picture. Best Screenplay and Best Actor are the two categories that the movie will likely win. I also think that Moonlight has a better chance, because its so loved (or I just overestimated it chances) and it won the drama globe.February 9, 2017 at 8:12 am #1202006611

No Best Director nomination though
Or Score or Film Editing or Cinematography. I think MBTS is more likely to win over Moonlight. It did after all get Editing, and Lucas Hedges did get in for rising star, even though he wasn’t in the supporting categoryFebruary 9, 2017 at 8:25 am #1202006618
Hmm… Moonlight has no chance since Jenkins was snubbed. The race here is between LLL and Manchester.
Manchester got the same nods in BAFTA and AMPAS but the difference that the brits traded Hedges nom for an editing one, which is more important to get real chances to win.
So the race here is closer than at the Oscars, besides, is more common that BAFTA embraces slow films, with the factor that MBTS is a more human film, LLL is a very American one.
But, of course LLL is much more seductive throughout all branches and is a very uplifting, happy film.
It wouldn’t be a crazy move to choose MBTS in Picture, Screenplay, Actor and in Supporting Actress, since Fences was nearly snubbed here. Even editing is a little bit in the air.February 9, 2017 at 9:12 am #1202006666
Wow. The desperation for an actual race has reached peak level.

In a word, no.
I, Daniel Blake could upset. But not Manchester By The Sea.February 9, 2017 at 10:39 am #1202006702
“Can [insert movie here] upset La La Land?”
The answer is pretty much going to be no, whatever the scenario is.February 9, 2017 at 10:49 am #1202006707
I can’t fathom how Manchester, of all things, would stage a BAFTA upset. This is the same body that didn’t even give Ordinary People a Best Picture nomination. American family dramas, for the most part, aren’t their cup of tea.
