BAFTA Predictions 2016

What better day to celebrate the love of film in Britain than Valentine’s day! That’s right, tonight is BAFTA night. In a few hours time the envelopes will be open and the winners will have their new golden masks. But before that, here’s a little prediction for who will go home with a grin on their face. As I do every year, each category has a prediction for who should win and who likely will win. I’ve left four nominations out due to having not seen the nominated films: Best Film Not In The English Language, Best Documentary, Best British Short Animation and Best British Short Film. Let me know in the comments below if you think I’m right or wrong, and what your own predictions are! Depending how spoiler worthy my twitter feed is tonight (since the awards are screened like 2 hours after they’ve been handed out) I may tweet along to the ceremony at @movie_mad so feel free to follow me there. For now though, see you at the Oscars!
