BAFTA Awards 2015: What To Watch Out For

The nominations for this year’s BAFTAs have now been announced and on 8 February we will find out who the prestigious gold BAFTA trophies are going home with. But of course there’s more to it than the winners and losers as it’s also about the show. It’s about who’s wearing what on the red carpet and who parties until the last possible moment at the after-party.

I’m lucky enough to have attended the awards at the Royal Opera House for the past five years and it’s a long event (read my blog about last year’s awards here). There are awards for costume and sound as well as the big categories. There are five things this year that I’m most excited about

(1) Best Actress

Rosamund Pike (left), Felicity Jones (centre) and Amy Adams (right) will battle it out with Julianne Moore and Reese Witherspoon. It’s great that we have two British actresses on the list although I’m pretty sure it will be Rosamund’s night, judging by how much critical acclaim she’s had this year. Who will wear the best dress though? There’s everything to play for!

(2) Best Actor

bafta-benedict

This category is all about Benedict Cumberbatch (left) vs Eddie Redmayne – the two posh British boys scrapping it out against Ralph Fiennes, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Keaton. Both boys’ films (The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything) have been box office smashes so it’s going to be tense on the night!

(3) Best Supporting Actress

bafta-keira-knightley

I think this award will be between Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game) and Emma Stone (Birdman). The two ladies play remarkably different characters in the movies but both contribute to making their individual films a lot more enjoyable. Personally, I hope Keira wins as she’s never won one!

(4) Best Supporting Actor

Edward Norton-20130418-0

Edward Norton, who always looks sexy in a suit, is nominated for Best Supporting Actor for Birdman, which he is brilliant in. Let’s see if he can beat Steve Carrell, Ethan Hawke, JK Simmons and Mark Ruffalo.

(5) Best Adapted Screenplay

3paddington10210b

I have a guilty pleasure for Paddington, which is such a heart-warming movie, that I hope it wins something. It’s up against American Sniper, Gone Girl, The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything so it has tough competition.

And talking of tough, these years nominees have to battle some original outfits that were worn last year including Angelina Jolie’s tuxedo.
