    Does anyone knows why Happy-Go-Lucky was shut out at BAFTAs? Not only Hawkins, Marsan and the screenplay were snubbed but the movie itself wasn’t even nominated for Best British Film.

    I checked the longlist mentions that year and Happy-Go-Lucky received only three: Hawkins, Marsan and screenplay.

    One would think Happy-Go-Lucky would be exactly what the BAFTA voters would eat up, right?

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    It had too early a release date (April).

    BAFTA’s eligibility period in normal years runs from February to February to accommodate top Oscar contenders (which is why The Personal History of David Copperfield was eligible for the 2020 BAFTAs and not the 2021 BAFTAs because it was released in January here but around August in the US.

    Hawkins not sweeping for this hurts.

    Have you seen Secrets & Lies? I highly recommend it. It’s, in my opinion, the best british film ever made.

    , the best british film ever made.

    That will be Trainspotting but I agree Secrets and Lies is excellent and so are Brenda Blethyn and Marianne Jean Baptiste.

    I adore SECRETS & LIES. I think it’s an underrated gem in so many ways.

    I feel like HAPPY GO LUCKY is one of those movies that I’ve seen be rather divisive.
    Some people on this forum have trashed it at such a level that I was kind of shocked by it.

    I wouldn’t say it’s amazing but I did really really like it and think it was one of the best films of that year. Sally Hawkins was robbed for sure…frankly I think Best Actress that year should’ve either been her or Anne Hathaway.

    Just watched this movie today. It was simply amazing and Hawkins was out of this world. Her performance in this film is personally one of the greatest film performances ever. She could have even win the Oscar if she wasn’t snubbed.
