Some Important Moments on BAFTA 2023
The 2023 EE British Academy Film Awards (76th) were presented by actor Richard E. Grant on Sunday night, making it the biggest night in British cinema again.
The star-studded gala was hosted by Richard, 65, and Alison Hammond at the Royal Festival Hall. Vick Hope and film critic Ali Plum were on the red carpet.
In an unexpected upset, Austin Butler won Best Actor at the ceremony, defeating fan favorite Colin Farrell.
The actor, who played the late King Of Rock in the Baz Luhrmann movie, fought back the tears as he paid tribute to the Presley family and accepted the award.
Austin thanked everyone on the cast and crew and said he was “just trying to soak it all in,” fighting back the tears as he accepted the award.
Butler, who still spoke at the event in the Elvis drawl he developed for Baz Luhrmann’s film, said, “This means the world to me.”
He also expressed gratitude to the Presley family for providing details about life for the biopic Elvis, saying that he hoped he had made them proud.
Butler took the award home by beating other Best Actor nominees, including Brendan Fraser (The Whale), Colin Farrell (The Banshees of Inisherin), Paul Mescal (Aftersun), Daryl McCormack (Good Luck to You, Leo Grande), & Bill Nighy (Living).
The biopic Tar’s lone significant evening victory went to Cate Blanchett for her portrayal as Best Leading Actress.
She gratefully acknowledged her mother and the filmmaker Todd Field as she tearfully took the award, saying that Blanchett had also mentioned that 2022 had been an “amazing year for women.”
She continued by saying that it had become clear that women’s experiences are not “monolithic” and that playing Lydia Tar “was a risky and even career-ending undertaking.”
The Banshees of Inisherin came in second place with five awards, including Best Supporting Actor and Actress, & Best British Film. At the same time, All Quiet On The Western Front, the German war epic of Netflix, took home seven awards overall, including Best Film.
Based on Erich Maria Remarque’s 1929 novel of the same name, the movie shares the distinction with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2001) as the non-English-language movie with the most BAFTA nominations.
Felix Kammerer, Aaron Hilmer, Sebastian Hülk, Albrecht Schuch, Edin Hasanovic, Daniel Brühl, and Devid Striesow are the cast members under Edward Berger’s direction.
During his opening address, Richard referred to Will Smith’s infamous slap at the Oscars last year and assured the crowd that “under my watch, no one gets slapped tonight.”
During the 94th Oscar Awards in March, Smith went onto the stage and smacked presenter Chris Rock after the comedian joked about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
The actor, who shortly after went on to win the coveted best actor Oscar, was barred from all Academy functions for the following ten years and eventually left the group.
At the Baftas, Grant predicted that Sunday would only bring “on the back” slaps.
What a fantastic year to host the Baftas, he exclaimed.
There has never been a better moment to visit a movie theatre than now, according to 2022.
“Well, not right now,” he continued, “but I’m doing my best to ensure that no one under my watch gets slapped tonight other than on the back.”
Carey Mulligan got wrongly proclaimed the Supporting Actress award winner as the ceremony started due to a translation error while deaf actor Troy Kotsur presented.
Oscar-winner Before a misunderstanding led to Mulligan’s name being called for her performance in She Said, Kotsur made the announcement using sign language.
