BAFTA Awards 2019: ‘Roma’ and ‘The Favourite’ Take Top Honors
  |  @   |  

Alfonso Cuaron‘s Roma is proving itself to be this year’s major awards contender. Having won multiple awards in various guilds and societies, Cuaron’s love letter to 1970s Mexico just nabbed even more awards at this year’s British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). The film took home Best Film and Best Director. A truly impressive run for the Netflix film. However, it fell short of winning some performance awards, some of which went to The Favourite‘s Olivia Colman, who won Best Actress, and Rachel Weisz, who won Best Supporting Actress.

  |  @   |  

As we get closer to the end of the year, more and more critic groups and guilds are releasing the nominees for the best of the year. Not all winners will be the same and that is what makes all of these guilds so special. As a member of the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society, I took part in voting for the very best in film and filmmaking. This year, top honors went to A Star Is Born, with the Best Male Director going to Spike Lee for his work on BlackKklansman, and Lynne Ramsey winning Best Female Director for her work on You Were Never Really Here.

Additionally, Alfonso Cuaron won awards for Best Foreign Film and Best Cinematography and Fox Searchlight’s The Favourite Best Comedy and Best Cast. Mission: Impossible – Fallout also took home two awards for Best Action Film and Best Stunts. While Disney and Marvel’s Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War won awards for Best Blockbuster, and Best Visual Effects and Best Visual Effects or Animated Performance. Check out the full list of winners here below.

Watch: New Trailer For ‘The Favourite’ Starring Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Olivia Colman
  |  @   |  

Fox Searchlight has released a new trailer for The Favourite, an upcoming historical drama about Queen Anne in the early 18th century which stars Emma Stone (La La Land, Birdman), Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener, The Fountain), and Olivia Colman (Hot Fuzz, The Crown).

If this is the first you’ve heard of the movie, the trailer might initially make it look like your typical awards season release—or “Oscar Bait,” as they are often labeled. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Those types of films are often excellent. But as the trailer progresses it quickly becomes more than just a historical drama. It becomes funny. It becomes dark. All led by what appear to be three fittingly awards-caliber performances by Stone, Weisz, and Colman.

Continue below for more info on The Favourite and to check out the new trailer along with a new poster.
