    In the last 27 years, only 12 of them won the Oscar Best Picture and the BAFTA Best Picture. That’s only 44%.

    The last time the BAFTA Best Picture winner and Oscar Best Picture matched was 12 Years a Slave.

    You don’t know what you’re talking about ; it was a very British film , The Kings Speech ……12 yrs a slave was not entered into BBF category for tactical reasons

    Only about 4-5 times in the last 25 years has the best picture winner been even nominated in BBF and it has only won once

    Up until about 4 years ago the BBF was chosen by a jury and so the past voting history is not very relevant now that its chosen by the full Bafta membership …the so called” popular vote” may be quite different from past jury votes

    The irony of starting a post “You don’t know what you’re talking about” then proceeding to rant about something no-one was talking about. This topic was about the relationship between Oscar Best Picture and Bafta Best Film.

    I re-read what I wrote. I don’t see the issue.

    Everything I wrote was correct. Sorry. Read my post before you jump to your conclusions.

    BAFTA Best Film is not Best British Film.

    I don’t think a 44% record necessarily means it’s better to lose. There are 8-9 BP nominees every year, so 44% is pretty strong. Anyway even if we’re just looking at the two most likely BP winners every year, picking the right one only 44% of the time doesn’t necessarily mean anything. At most I’d say it just means BAFTA is close to being irrelevant as a predictor.

    I don’t think that it would be correct to say that losing Best Film at the BAFTAs is a good thing. I mean, it can’t hurt to win a Picture award, right? But I think that it could be argued that BAFTA Best Film isn’t as an important win as others because of its low correlation to Best Picture wins. But still, 44% is high enough to be relevant in the race.
