Last Updated: February 20, 2023, 11:20 IST
The 76th British Academy Film Awards or BAFTA 2023 were announced last evening and it saw the German film All Quiet on the Western Front dominate the event. The Edward Bergerdirectorial walked home with seven awards including the best director award, adapted screenplay, cinematography, best score, best sound and best film not in English. The big win has set the momentum right for the film right before the Oscars.
The next big winners of the night were the Irish film The Banshees of Inisherin and the biopic Elvis. Austin Butler bagged the best actor winner for Elvis besides the film taking home the awards for casting, costume design and hair and makeup. Martin McDonagh’s Banshees won the best British film award, original screenplay, best supporting actress for Kerry Condon and best-supporting actor for Barry Keoghan. On the other hand, Cate Blanchett won the best actress award for Tar.
Meanwhile, the Indian documentary All That Breathes which was nominated for this year’s BAFTA lost to Navalny, a film about jailed Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny.
Everything Everywhere All at Once, the Academy Awards front-runner, was the night’s big loser, winning just one prize from its 10 BAFTA nominations, for editing.
Actor Richard E Grant was a suave and self-deprecating host for the ceremony at London’s Royal Festival Hall, where the UK’s movie academy heralded its strides to become more diverse but said there was more to be done. Grant also joked in his opening monologue about the infamous altercation between Will Smith and Chris Rock at last year’s Oscars.
