BAFTAs 2013

So the BAFTAs are done and dusted for another year and have, surprisingly for some of us, given the Oscars a sharp dig in the ribs by recognising Argo as the big winner, along with Les Miserables. No very major surprises other than that – what, if anything, does this mean for the Oscars come the end of the month? The ways of Academy voters are sometimes willfully bizarre (Driving Miss Daisy ???), so speculation is pointless. Personally I think it’s odd Tom Hooper hasn’t received at least a few more nominations for Les Miserables; for all it’s strengths, it’s odd that a film as ill-disciplined as Django Unchained gets more nods for its director than Les Miserables. I could go on … whither, BAFTA, Beasts Of The Southern Wild. Anyway below is a list of links to my blog posts on BAFTA winners I’ve had the chance to see thus far, to which I hope to add Lincoln in the next few days. Enjoy.

Skyfall – Outstanding British Film, Best Original Music

Les Miserables  – Best Make Up and Hair, Best Sound, Best Supporting Actress (Anne Hathaway), Best Production Design

Argo – Best Editing, Best Director, Best Picture

Life Of Pi – Best Cinematography, Best Special Visual Effects

Django Unchained – Best Original Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz)

Searching For Sugar Man  – Best Documentary


Those that won BAFTAS this year which don’t appear above are films I haven’t had the chance to see due to release dates and accessibility here in South Africa. As and when I see them, I’ll add links to my blogs above.
