At the BAFTA Awards, which were held in London on Sunday, All Quiet on the Western Front and The Banshees of Inisherin had a golden evening of victory. Banshees won two of the four acting categories, original script, and Best British Cinema, while All Quiet won seven awards, including Best Picture and Best Director for Edward Berger. The Netflix-backed movie All Quiet had the most nominations going into the evening’s events with 14.
Due to this, the German-language World War I drama tied with Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon for the most nominations ever given to a non-English language film by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. With wins from Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan in the acting categories, Martin McDonagh’s Irish tragi-comedy The Banshees of Inisherin, starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, had an equally impressive run in the lead-up to the event.
While Cate Blanchett won Leading Actress for her portrayal of an egotistical conductor and composer in Todd Field’s Tár, Austin Butler won Leading Actor for his rousing performance as the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, in Baz Luhrmann’s bombastically entertaining biopic, Elvis.
The BAFTA EE Emerging Star Award winner Emma Mackey, who will soon experience a significant professional breakthrough with Greta Gerwig’s upcoming Barbie, also had a momentous moment. Sex Education on Netflix is where Mackey is best known, and she has already been nominated for a TV BAFTA for her performance there. Also, she acted in two movies last year: Emily, starring as the renowned poet Emily Bront, and Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile.
The BAFTAs, which follow the DGA Awards from earlier in the weekend, are regarded as a crucial forerunner for what will occur on Oscar night, despite the British Academy departing quite significantly from their American counterparts this year by nominating Viola Davis from The Woman King and Danielle Deadwyler from Till for Lead Actress while largely ignoring Oscar heavyweights Avatar: The Way of Water and The Fablemans.
