2019 BAFTA Winners

So I haven't written about the BAFTAs on my Blog since 2017. I never get to watch the ceremony so I always forget to post about them. I didn't watch this year either but since I'm sitting around on yet another snowy, freezing day. Why not continue on with the fuckery that is this award season? The winners are in green.

Best Actor
Bradley Cooper – A Star Is Born
Christian Bale – Vice
Rami Malek – Bohemian Rhapsody
Steve Coogan – Stan & Ollie
Viggo Mortensen – Green Book
Excuse me, Brits. HOW did you not give Christian Bale this award? You had one job!

Best Actress
Glenn Close – The Wife
Lady Gaga – A Star Is Born
Melissa McCarthy – Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Olivia Colman – The Favourite
Viola Davis – Widows
Thank God they at least did this right. Close should not be winning every award in site for such a boring performance. Colman is the rightful winner here. 

Best Film
BlacKkKlansman
The Favourite
Green Book
Roma

A Star Is Born
ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Roma is clearly the front runner for Best Picture now and that means another unenthusiastic win from me.


Best Supporting Actress
Amy Adams – Vice
Claire Foy – First Man
Emma Stone – The Favourite
Margot Robbie – Mary Queen of Scots
Rachel Weisz – The Favourite
Without Regina King here this was wide open and Weisz came in for the win. I'm not mad.

Letitia forever!

Best Supporting Actor
Adam Driver – BlacKkKlansman

  1. Yay for Olivia Colman. I want her to win the Oscar. Not Glenn Close.

  3. I know you hated it, but I'm ALL IN for Roma winning Best Picture. Cuaron is a genius, and this will be the first Foreign Language Best Picture winner EVER at the Oscars (The Artist doesn't count) and that will be historic, and who better that a genius to make history. I also loved the film (although I see why some feel as you do) so I'm Team Roma all the way.

    And Black Panther is bottom tier Disney at best...like, it wasn't even the best Marvel movie released this year. That being said, I wouldn't hate it winning because, even though it is far from deserving, it would also be rather historic and say a lot for the change in the industry regarding minorities and the power of their stories. I just wish that it would happen for, you know, a good movie.

    The Oscars should reward the best...not the popular.

    1. LOL, bottom tier...Marvel (although it's I guess Disney...)

    2. I understand why Roma is loved but Black Panther is nowhere near bottom tier Marvel.

      Cuaron told a very specific story where he cared more about showing how beautiful his memories were then he did about the main character and her feelings. Black Panther told a story that not only cared about its characters but looked beautiful on top of it and yes, became a cultural phenomenon.

      We're asking the Academy to name the Best Picture/ Just because Black Panther is popular with everyone vs only being popular with critics like Roma. doesn't make it less deserving. It IS a good film. The acting is good, the costumes and art direction are spectacular and it has a coherent story that never once gets pretentious. Coogler cared about every part of his film where as I don't think Cuaron cared about his.

      So in this case for me personally when it comes to these two, Black Panther is the better film. By quite a long shot, in fact.

    3. I may have to give it another watch, but I have to say, I was far less than impressed. That being said, I totally agree with you from a technical achievement because the sets, costumes, and complete creation of a whole new world was rather fantastic.

      But best of the year? Hmmmm…

      But I do disagree on Roma. I think he truly cared a great deal about his story as a whole, and cared a lot about unfolding that story in an organic way. There isn't an ounce of bravado or melodrama there. It is just life as he saw and experienced it.

    4. I agree its life how he saw it, but as awful as this sounds - that doesn't always make for an interesting film. lol

    5. Same issues I had with Stories We Tell lol

  4. It is starting to hurt me physically how they are all robbing Cooper blind

    1. I swear all the hyperbole around ASIB when it first came out is what is hurting it. They were declared winners too quickly.

    2. I'm starting to think Malek has kinky pictures of 80% of AMPAS. There is no other explanation

    3. It's so weird considering how the Emmys treated him after he won by never nominating him again and mostly ignoring his show.

  5. I finally saw Black Panther and I think I am hit by all the huge praise that I was expecting something mind blowing. It is an excellent movie with a great script because it brings up many issues including the villain whom you do feel bad for even if it is the typical, "I was wronged as a kid so now i will seek revenge" story. To be honest, I prefer the Avengers film because so much was in that film that could have easily lost its way. It's sad that Bohemian Rhapsody is getting the praise..I still have to see it but I don't think I will have my mind changed all that much. Rumi played a talented guy who died from AIDS who has horrible teeth...Not Freddie Mercury but poor Rumi with those bad teeth. I can't take my eyes off of them whenever he is on the trailers.

    1. Rami was fighting those teeth for a good portion of that movie lol. I also prefer the Avengers films but they have most history behind them. I still love Black Panther on its own.

  6. I'm glad Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won.

  7. The two shockers on the night for me was BoRhap not getting Best British Film (I didn't want it to win but I never thought it could lose) and Roma winning Best Picture...UGH. I mean, I haven't watched Roma yet so maybe I shouldn't judge but I can't say anything about it makes me want to see it...

  8. "thank you for having eyes" LOL. I love that.
