BAFTA 2019 | Predictions

It’s the biggest night in the British film calendar and – this year – comes served with a dash of controversy, thanks to the exorcism of Bryan Singer’s name from the Bohemian Rhapsody nominations.

An all male directorial line up makes for a disheartening read but there’s relief in seeing recognition for Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here. Significant snubs this year, meanwhile, include Debora Granik’s Leave No Trace and Steve McQueen’s Widows.

As school beating stick Amberson, he’s actually quite the charmer in his own eccentric way. Quaint charm is the gentle soul of Old Boys, a so so feature debut from two time BAFTA short nominee Toby MacDonald. Though the film ultimately falls flat of its promise, it does so in a genial and occasionally witty fashion.
