Filmmaker Damien Chazelle’s love letter to the Golden Era of Hollywood musicals, La La Land has been among the front-runners in the quest to be crowned Best Picture by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences throughout the current awards season. While that still remains the case now, with but a couple weeks left until this year’s Academy Awards ceremony takes place, the odds seem less in favor of La La Land securing a sweep of the Oscar categories in which it has been nominated, in the vein of such past blockbuster sensations as Titanic and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (to name but two examples).

The acting categories at nearly every major film awards show this year have been dominated by such acclaimed dramas as Manchester by the Sea and Fences rather than La La Land, with fellow critical darling Moonlight having likewise made a good showing (and even secured the top honors at certain events) during its own sprint through this year’s awards show circuit. That remained the case at the 2017 British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards ceremony: an event in which La La Land took home the top prize and several other awards, while other awards season heavyweights took home major BAFTA awards of their own.

La La Land took home five BAFTA awards in total, include wins for Best Film, Director and Actress (for Emma Stone), cementing its front-runner status for those categories at the Oscars show later this month. Meanwhile, Casey Affleck was recognized as Best Actor for his work on Manchester by the Sea and Viola Davis picked up yet another victory for Best Supporting Actress in Fences, further solidifying their own prospects of taking home an Academy Awards for their performances this year. That’s not to say there weren’t any surprises during this year’s BAFTA awards show, however.

Kubo and the Two Strings Laika La La Land Wins Best Film at the 2017 BAFTA Awards

Cast in point, Laika’s stop-motion animated Kubo and the Two Strings won the prize for Best Animated Film over Disney’s smash-hit computer animated film Zootopia; itself, the longtime front-runner to win the Best Animated Feature Oscar this year. Zootopia is still arguably the favorite to be dubbed best animated feature over Kubo by the Academy, but an upset victory isn’t out of the question either. It will be interesting to see if both Kubo and the Best Documentary winner at the BAFTAs, the Ava DuVernay-helmed 13th, repeat their wins at the Oscars, given the strong competition that they will be facing off against.

Elsewhere, in the technical categories, Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi film Arrival and Jon Favreau’s live-action The Jungle Book (both of which are critical darlings) took home prizes of their own, including Best Visual Effects for the latter’s almost completely CGI landscapes and non-human characters. The Harry Potter prequel/spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them also took home a BAFTA for Best Production Design, as did Mel Gibson’s true story-based WWII drama/thriller, Hacksaw Ridge for editing. All four of those films are up for Oscars this month too, so it’s plausible (if not exactly likely) that all of these 2016 releases will be adding Academy Awards to their collection in the near future, too.
