Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role

It’s hard to imagine the guild passing on a legend like Gary Oldman, who disappears into the epic role of Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour.” If an upset is lurking, look to newcomer Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”).

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, basically. The lead actress contest has been the most competitive all year. Margot Robbie (“I, Tonya”) has the showiest work.

Author: Competitions

To mark the release of Victoria and Abdul, out now on Digital Download, and on Blu-ray & DVD 22nd January, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on DVD.

As the Queen questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that the Queen’s inner circle attempts to destroy.

Baftas 2018 analysis: this is the most British line-up in years

Baftas 2018 analysis: this is the most British line-up in years
The Shape Of Water stakes its claim but this is the most British line-up in years.

BAFTA nominees

After converting two of its seven Golden Globe nominations into wins on Sunday, Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape Of Water scored 12 Bafta nominations and firmed up its standing as this year’s most rounded awards contender.

Del Toro’s brilliant drama achieved recognition across the board and is the most nominated film at the Baftas since The King’s Speech achieved 14 nods in 2011.

It was a morning of mild surprises at Bafta HQ in London thanks to resounding performances by Darkest Hour with nine nominations, including best film, and Blade Runner 2049 with eight nominations, including a best director berth for Denis Villeneuve.

Darkest Hour had only managed a single Golden Globe nomination but the combination of its stirring theme and Gary Oldman’s bravura performance proved a hit with voters

BAFTA Award Nominations Boost Homegrown Fare, from ‘Darkest Hour’ to ‘Dunkirk’

As ever, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts nominations for the Ee British Academy Film Awards favor homegrown fare. Thus many slots that might have included such Hollywood films as “The Post” or “Wonder Woman” went to the likes of “Dunkirk,””Darkest Hour,” and “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool.”

One movie that one would expect would do well with the BAFTAs, Stephen Frears’ “Victoria & Abdul,” starring Judi Dench, landed a mere Hair & Makeup nod. American contenders “Get Out” and “Lady Bird” did not make it to Best Film, even if Daniel Kaluuya and Saoirse Ronan landing acting nods; both Jordan Peele and Greta Gerwig settled for Screenplay recognition.

Leading the BAFTA field was Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” with 12 nominations. “Darkest Hour” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” followed with nine nominations and “Blade Runner 2049” and “Dunkirk” with eight. “I, Tonya” landed five nominations,

How to Watch the BAFTA Awards Nominations Live

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts announces the nominations for its 71st Awards on Tuesday morning in London. The event will be live-streamed on BAFTA’s official Facebook page starting Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. GMT (Monday at 11:30 p.m. Pt).

Often considered a bellwether for the Oscars, the nominations will be announced by Natalie Dormer (“Game of Thrones”) and Letitia Wright (“Black Panther”). A new host of the awards ceremony — longtime emcee Stephen Fry is stepping down after doing the honors a dozen times — will also be revealed. BAFTA chief executive Amanda Berry and chair Jane Lush will both be on hand for the announcement.

Voting opened for BAFTA members in mid-December and closed Jan. 2, shortly before the deadline for Oscar votes.

Like the Oscars, the BAFTAs consider all English-language films, not just U.K. productions, and the buzzed-about movies in the U.S. are part of the awards chatter across the pond

How the Director of ‘David Bowie: The Last Five Years’ Created a Documentary From Virtually Nothing

How the Director of ‘David Bowie: The Last Five Years’ Created a Documentary From Virtually Nothing
Watching the documentary “David Bowie: The Last Five Years” — which aired on the BBC last year but sees its U.S. premiere tonight on HBO — it’s easy to get the sense that the artist allowed the filmmakers incredible access during the last few months of his life.

He didn’t.

The film was meticulously researched and assembled after Bowie’s death in January 2016 by BBC director Francis Whately, who knew and was friendly with the artist, having directed the 2013 documentary “Five Years,” which looked at five key years in the singer’s life and got a thumbs-up from Bowie himself. Yet this new film on Bowie’s final five years, during which the singer largely disappeared from public view, was commissioned after his death in January 2016. (It premiered in the U.S. at the NYC Doc Film Festival in November.)

Consequently, “The Last Five Years” was an extraordinarily difficult film to make. Despite Bowie’s

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” surprises at the Golden Globe Awards

Last night, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association again defied expectations with their Golden Globe selections. As always, the HFPA do their own thing, the Academy be damned. Now, that’s a bit different this year, as voters for the Academy Awards were potentially watching, with voting currently going on. In that sense, this show actually might have impacted potential nominees, though future winners are a whole other thing. It made for an unpredictable ceremony, which more than lived up to that expectation. You’ll be able to see the full list of Golden Globe winners below, but first…a tiny bit of analysis and discussion. The Globes spread the love, though leading the charge was Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri with four wins (including Best Picture – Drama, Best Screenplay, and two acting prizes) one of only three films to take home multiple statues.

Golden Globes 2018: The Complete Winners List

The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards kicked off Sunday at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, marking the beginning of awards season and symbolizing a new era in Hollywood.

As expected, actors and actresses wore black on the red carpet to symbolize their solidarity with victims of sexual harassment and those fighting for gender inequality in the workplace; many shared with Et the significance the Time's Up initiative has to them personally.

While the red carpet became a place for thoughtful discussion and powerful statements, it was also a place to celebrate the night's nominees. Female-led shows like Big Little Lies and Feud: Bette and Joan led the pack with six and four nominations each, while on the film side, The Shape of Water earned seven nominations. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and The Post tied with six nominations each.
