BAFTA Film Awards Winner All Quiet On The Western Front

BAFTA Film Awards Winner: ‘All Quiet On The Western Front’ Takes Adapted Screenplay – Update Live


Update for the latest…: It’s BAFTA Sunday here in London and the annual BAFTA Film Awards ceremony kicks off on an impossibly balmy evening at the Royal Festival Hall. Richard E Grant is hosting the ceremony tonight, taking over the baton from last year’s host, Rebel Wilson, and we’ll be updating the list of winners live so check back for updates.

To kick off the event, Netflix’s All Quiet on the Western Front leads the nominations with 14, including Outstanding Motion Picture, Director and Adapted Screenplay. The German-language WWI drama ties with Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon for most nominations for a non-English language film in BAFTA history. Praised as the Edward Berger-led version was, it will face stiff competition.

With 10 nominations each, Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy from Searchlight, The Banshees of Inisherin and A24’s awards favorite Everything Everywhere All at Once come from Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, which took home the DGA’s top honor on Saturday night.

McDonagh was most recently at the BAFTA for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, which won five awards in 2018, including both Best Picture and Outstanding British Film. UK, US, Irish Banshees has plenty of love here and shouldn’t be counted despite Everything Everywhere’s dynamic.

Similarly, Charlotte Wells’ Aftersun has heat – it’s about Outstanding British Film, Debut, Leading (Paul Mescal) and Casting.

Warner Bros/Village Roadshow’s Elvis garnered nine nominations including Film, Cinematography and Lead Actor for Austin Butler. Baz Luhrmann was left out in the director category.

The BAFTAs are another Oscar prequel that might give us a clearer indication of what’s in store for us on March 12th at the Dolby, but the Org’s membership has moved significantly away from AMPAS in their nominations, with The Woman King’s Viola Davis and Till’s Danielle Deadwyler was given a spot in Leading Actress, while Avatar: The Way of Water and The Fablemans were all but ruled out.

The BAFTAs will air an hour late in the UK and US, so be sure to check out the winners as we update live below.
