The Oscars are only a few days away and Sam Mendes is doing a great job building momentum with his war drama 1917. After scooping a series of major awards, this project won big at this year’s BAFTA, where it collected a total of seven trophies.
1917 won three of the biggest awards of the night – best film, best British film, and best director. Its triumph didn’t end there—the film also dominated the technical categories, including cinematography, production design, sound, and special visual effects.
The list of major winners at this year’s BAFTAs also included Joker with three awards (best actor in a leading role, original score, and casting) and Parasite with two (best original screenplay and best foreign film).
The BAFTA Awards took place at the Royal Albert Hall in London on February 2nd, with Graham Norton hosting the ceremony.
