Sunday’s BAFTA Awards and Critics Choice Awards doubleheader gave us a slew of new (but familiar) winners and one rather surprising one. Gold Derby Editors and Experts Christopher Rosen and Joyce Eng are here to break down all the results and what they mean to Oscar.
BAFTA and Critics Choice both named “The Power of the Dog” Best Picture, but both shows weren’t swept. It only took home two trophies at BAFTA, the other being Best Director for Jane Campionand one of his losses came in Best Adapted Screenplay, which went to “CODA’s”. Sian Heder in great excitement. That was the Apple TV+ film’s second win the day after Troy Kotsur was awarded Best Supporting Actor. “CODA” now has double wins at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and BAFTA, so does it really come with just three Best Picture nominations at the Oscars?

Outside of Best Actress, where they literally couldn’t replicate a previous result and were won by “After Love’s”. Joanna Scanlanthe British crowned SAG champions Kotsur, Will Smith (“King Richard”) and Ariana DeBose (“West Side Story”) in the drama races. All three added Critics Choice awards alongside their fellow SAG champions Jessica Chastain (“The Eyes of Tammy Faye”), which won Best Actress. Chastain didn’t win the BAFTA, of course, but her film won Best Makeup and Hairstyling there. Smith, DeBose and Kotsur were looking strong for Oscar wins before, and Chastain may have just joined them. Is it time to say goodbye to the excitement and chaos of the Best Actress race?
