winners//70th BRITISH ACADEMY FILM AWARDS

AWARDS COVERAGE



La La Land triumphed at the 70th BAFTA Awards, earning Best Film and Best Director accolades, among others.

The wins for La La Land mark important victories at the British equivalent to the Academy Awards. Many of the British members of the Academy also vote for the BAFTAs. Noteworthy, though, a BAFTA win doesn't always equate an Oscar win. Last year, The Revenant won top honors at the BAFTAs, but was beat by Spotlight at the Academy Awards.

Casey Affleck won the Best Actor surprise for Manchester by the Sea. The actor is expected to repeat the win at the Oscar, though his top competitor, Denzel Washington in Fences, failed to receive a BAFTA nomination.

Other notable wins include Lion's wins for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor for Dev Patel. His win was seen as a surprise and could give him a last ditch push for the Oscar, for which he is also nominated. Academy officially begins today.

The ceremony took place at the historic The Royal Albert Hall in London.
