BAFTA 2018 Predictions

It’s that time of the year again folks! With the BAFTA’s mere hours away I’ve finally narrowed down my predictions of tonights winners. As usual you’ll find my predictions below of what SHOULD win and what WILL win.

Also, because it was a bit of a shitty year last year I didn’t quite manage to see as much of the nominees as I usually would have, so the ones I’ve not seen are noted. And I’m unable to predict BRITISH SHORT ANIMATION or BRITISH SHORT FILM since I’ve not seen any of them.

So, without further ado:
