Professor Stephen Hawking and the surprisingly good British weather were amongst the stars of the show at the 68th BAFTA Awards ceremony.Click here for full list of winners

At London’s Royal Opera House, Host Stephen Fry introduced the 68th Ee BAFTAs by making a reference to the night’s weather, which for the first time in many years, didn’t involve rain.

Making his entrance to “Uptown Funk”, Fry described the BAFTAs as “that most glorious of occasions when the heavens open and the great and the good of the industry rain down upon us,” adding: “It may be dry outside but in here it’s simply pissing down with stars.”

Those stars included David Beckham, Reese Witherspoon, Mark Ruffalo, Ethan Hawke, Julie Walters, Kristin Scott Thomas, Noomi Rapace, Jesse Eisenberg, Ralph Fiennes and surprise guest Tom Cruise, who handed out the Best Film prize.

8 February 2015 10:50 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 2015 Ee BAFTA Awards were handed out in London Sunday night and while the broadcast aired hours later in the United States, it didn't stop us from chronicling the twists and turns of a show often seen as a bellwether for the Academy Awards. It took home only three BAFTAs, but "Boyhood" was the biggest winner of the night as it won Best Film and Richard Linklater earned Director honors. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" took home five statues including Original Screenplay for Wes Anderson, Production Design, Costumes, Original Music and Make Up & Hair. "Whiplash" earned three BAFTAs including J.K. Simmons for Supporting Actor, Editing and a somewhat surprising win in Sound. Expected Oscar winners Julianne Moore took Leading Actress and Patricia Arquette took Supporting Actress. Eddie Redmayne earned a key win over rival Michael Keaton by claiming the Lead Actor BAFTA for "The Theory of Everything." The latter also won »

Bafta Nominations Showcase the Range of U.K. Cinema

6 February 2015 11:03 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This year’s Bafta nominees for British film — “Pride,” “Paddington,” “Under the Skin,” “’71,” “The Theory of Everything” and “The Imitation Game” — showcase the sheer variety, range and intelligence of U.K. cinema in 2014.

That’s underlined by the exceptional quality of contenders that failed to make the cut — the likes of “Calvary,” “Locke,” “Belle,” “Testament of Youth,” “Starred Up” and, most controversially, “Mr. Turner.”

For all the considerable differences between them, in artistic ambition and commercial appeal, the six nominees share an underlying theme that sheds an intriguing light on the zeitgeist. They are all about misfits struggling to belong, and they ask acute questions about our capacity for empathy.

That echoes the anxiety about immigration and social cohesion that is dominating the U.K. political debate — a weighty subject addressed explicitly in the most populist of all the contenders, “Paddington.” It’s a giant stylistic leap from here to »

Gay and Lesbian Critics Go for Ava DuVernay, 'The Comeback,' 'Transparent,' Xavier Dolan and More

20 January 2015 11:34 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Good news for a few unsung films, series and actors today. "Selma" director Ava DuVernay may have gotten the Oscar snub, but she's the Best Director of the year according to Galeca, who offer reprieve from the same old story of the 2014-2015 awards season. While voters did select Oscar frontrunners "Boyhood" for Best Film, Julianne Moore for Best Actress in "Still Alice" and Eddie Redmayne of "The Theory of Everything" for Best Actor, other, more rebellious choices color the Dorian Awards winners list, naming Matthew Warchus' wonderful, rousing "Pride" as the Best Lgbtq Film of the Year, and Xavier Dolan's Academy-rejected "Mommy" as the Best Foreign Language Film. Amazon's Golden Globe-winning "Transparent," from filmmaker turned series creator Jill Soloway, nabbed five prizes including TV Comedy of the year. Lisa Kudrow picked up the best TV actress award for her wickedly funny, iconic hot mess of a role in. »

Nominations Announced For 2015 BAFTA Awards

9 January 2015 12:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has just finished announcing their nominations for best achievement in film for 2014, with Wes Anderson’s quirky comedy The Grand Budapest Hotel leading the pack with 11 nominations. Not far behind are Birdman and The Theory of Everything with ten nods apiece. All three films have earned nods in many of the same top categories, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, and in their respective Best Screenplay categories.

Some may find it surprising that the most lauded film of the year, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, only made a showing with five nominations, but they were all in top categories (Film, Director, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, and Original Screenplay). However, it is a little shocking that no nod for editing was included (and that’s with six nominees already in the category due to a tie), as this is usually considered a »
