The British Film Academy Awards (BAFTA 2020) took place in London.
The absolute leader in the number of awards was the military drama “1917”, which won the nominations for “Best Film”, “Best British Film”, “Best Director” (Sam Mendes), “Best Special Effects” and others.
The award in the nomination “Best Animated Film” was received by the Klaus project. British film academics recognized the South Korean drama “Parasites” as the best foreign language film.
The best actors of the year are Joaquin Phoenix (“Joker”) and Renee Zellweger (“Judy”). Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood”) and Laura Dern (“Marriage Story”) received awards for performing supporting roles.
The main loser of the ceremony was the criminal lady “Irish”, which was shot by Martin Scorsese.
Being one of the leaders in the number of references – 10 nominations for BAFTA 2020 – the picture as a result did not receive a single award.
Something similar happened earlier during the award ceremony of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association – Golden Globe 2020. Then of the five possible trophies, the Irishman also did not receive a single one.
