BAFTA 2023: ‘All Quiet’ Surprises With 7, Including Best Film

BAFTA 2023: ‘All Quiet’ Surprises With 7, Including Best Film

All Quiet on the Western Front won 7 awards at this year’s BAFTA Awards including Best Film, Director, Adapted Screenplay, and Cinematography. How many of these will the film win at the Oscars? at this point it has Best International Film in the bag and is a possible winner for Cinematography, but I doubt it expands past that.

Oscar frontrunner Everything Everywhere All at Once was held to just Best Editing while its main challenger The Banshees of Inisherin came out with four, Best British Film, Original Screenplay, Supporting Actress, and a surprising Supporting Actor win for Barry Keoghan. With these wins, and Austin Butler and Cate Blanchett’s wins in Best Actor and Best Actress respectively, none of the acting races have a clear frontrunner, making this. Though if Blanchett ends up winning at SAG that will change. Since Eddie Redmayne in 2015, every BAFTA winner in Best Actor has also won at the Oscars and if Butler wins at SAG he will have the same three major precursors (GG, BAFTA, and SAG) that fellow biopic winners Redmayne and Malek did in 2015 and 2019 respectively.

My pick for Best Documentary, Navalny won at BAFTA, making me even more confident that it will triumph over All the Beauty and the Bloodshed and Fire of Love with the Academy as well. It’s exactly the kind of political film they like, not too extreme, highly watchable, and relevant but not at the top of the current news cycle.
