February, and the awards season is well underway with one of the most promising selection of films in years. Last month’s Golden Globes cemented its place as a merrier celebration of cinema, with hints of what was yet to come. This weekend saw the 67th BAFTA film awards rolled out the red carpet for a powerhouse line up that ranged from impressive newcomers such as Lupita Nyong’o to British darlings (Emma Thompson, Helen Mirren) and Hollywood royalty in the form of Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese.

The heavens thankfully stayed closed and with what felt like treble the fanbase, London welcomed its home-grown and visiting talent with open arms.

The results of the ceremony, as always, came with a mix of joy and controversy. Multiple celebrations came from the makers of Gravity and 12 Years a Slave, who between them claimed trophies for most major categories including Outstanding British Film (Gravity) Best Director (Alfonso Cuarón) and Best Film (12 Years a Slave.)

Leading and supporting roles went to critics’ favourites, with Barkhad Abdi’s victory in the best supporting actor category bringing one of the more welcome surprises, while Lupita Nyong’o’s shun as best supporting actress caused ripples in an otherwise calm pool of admiration for Jennifer Lawrence, who wasn’t present.

Whereas we can’t guarantee similar results for next month’s Academy Awards, the presence of Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto in the lead and supporting actors roles for one are setting bets in a different direction, this year’s BAFTAs have confirmed victories for a varied and celebrated host of filmmakers, actors and both the British and foreign film industry.
