Bafta Award Predictions
Robocop at #3 after 5 days? Ouch. But it's doing decent business overseas and breaking even of its $100M budget but Japan and China will have final call since they love their robots. Could that be enough for a sequel? Who cares. Mini Review:
This was so lame. Good cast, new suit, cool SFX, and it did have it's share of action it didn't add up to the original. Still curious?, Wait for Netflix/Redbox. I give this 2 out of 5.
Bafta Predictions: The British version of the American Academy Awards.
Pacific Rim for Visual Effects. I know, I won't let it go. But look at the Oscars: The Lone Ranger?
Now that I got that out of the way, lets look at the rest.
Please note: This is ALL Tongue in cheek of course. Cause nobody knows what the hell the British are thinking. But they do chose Pacific Rim (here I go again) Cherrio and enjoy the show.
Picture: 12 Years a Slave. "American Hustle" has American in it and the British don't like that.
Best British Film: Gravity
Actor: Chiwetel Ejifore. He's British. But wait, so is Christian Bale. But in a film with a American title.
Actress: Judi Dench, She's British but ill. Blanchett doesn't have a chance.
Spt Actor: Daniel Bruhl (Rush), He's French and are neighbors of the British.
Spt. Actress: Lupita Nyong'o. Don't care what side of the ocean she's on. She wins!!!
Animation: DM2 but that damn Frozen is winning everything. It's got that Disney push. Bully.
All others including Editing, Cinematography, Production Design, sound etc goes to Gravity.
Best Foreign: Blue is the Warmest Color: French and a hot 6 min Lesbian scene. That's all you need.
Outstanding Debut: Kelly Marcel for Savings Mr. Banks. Only movie I saw in this catagory.
EE Rising Star Award: Lupita Nyong'o. That and the only name I know.
Update by request:
Screenplay: Gravity by Cuarons. They are not British but they are also not American.
Adapted Screenplay: Philomena by Steve Coogan, very British.
Make Up: Behind the Candelabra, those wigs! On My....
Costume Design: Candelabra,those outfits, Oh My!
Music: 12 Yrs Slave, Hans Zimmer. Very European.
