1917 took home the biggest win.
The BAFTA Film Awards are over for another year, and Sam Mendes’ World War I epic, 1917, took home the most golden masks, including the coveted Best Film and Best Director awards.
As for the top acting awards, Renée Zellweger took home the Lead Actress BAFTA for her performance as Judy Garland in Judy, and Joaquin Phoenix won the award for Lead Actor for his starring role in Joker. Phoenix also took the opportunity to highlight the lack of diversity in this year’s awards season nominations, admitting that he, like many others in the room, hadn’t done enough to ensure that people of colour were receiving equal opportunity within the film industry.
All in all, the BAFTA wins seemed to mirror those of earlier ceremonies, seeming to cement the winners of the upcoming 92nd Academy Awards.
