Predict the BAFTAS! After the cut.
‘Argo’ wins picture and director. ‘Skyfall’ wins Best British Film nudging ‘Les Miserables’. Riva could win Best Actress and signal a possible upset at the Oscar Awards. ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ could win Original Screenplay. Adapted Screenplay will be fun. If ‘Argo’ wins that as well it would be a shame. It doesn’t hold a candle to what Kushner did.
Predicting Riva starts the takeover
Gawd I hope all those Rivaniacs will finallly shut up after she loses this.
Yes, Atze, let the Riva partisans have their day next Sunday, knowing that the end of the line has been reached for her. Only they don’t realize it yet, Maybe this Oscars will be the one time reverse ageism doesn’t rear it’s butt-ugly mug as it has in the past.
I had the feeling that Jessica Chastain will win Critics Choice. And she won.
I had the feeling that Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence will win the Golden Globes. And they won.
I had the feeling that Jennifer Lawrence will win the Screen Actors Guild Award. And she won.
And now i have the feeling that Emanuelle Riva will win the Bafta Award, Jennifer Lawrence will win the Spirit Award and Emanuelle Riva or Jessica Chastain will win the Oscar! So, we will see?
this is my dream oscar…

Jennifer is a gold mine.

Best Actress is Jennifer Lawrence. No doubt
A Rivaniac. What a cute word. I will adopt that immediately. Thanks.
Argo wins USC Scripter…
While I did choose Emmanuelle Riva for my Best Actress prediction, I can’t say I chose her with confidence. I’m getting Gary Oldman vibes from her at this point, and if I took anything away from watching BAFTA’s televised awards show last year it’s that they’re susceptible to the same snowball-frontrunner group-think behavior that our awards shows exude.

What? No Argo? Editing, maybe.
Count me in as someone who predicted Riva (not sure about Oscar though), Waltz (don’t expect him to win Oscar though), and hell, I don’t even know what I put for Original Screenplay. They liked ZDT a lot, more than Django and Amour, actually, but they love Tarantino. And neither ZDT nor Amour are the kinds of movies that make you go, oh, they’re up for Best Picture, so they’ll beat the script from the film not up for Picture!
Even the Oscars infrequently favor scripts from films not up for Picture, especially in the last decade or so (Almost Famous, Talk to Her, Eternal Sunshine – wow! Not to mention The Artist won Picture but Midnight in Paris beat it for screenplay.).
It’s a digression and doesn’t mean much when there are 9 BP nominees. But they usually award the most eloquent scripts, unless they really love a film (TKS, THL) or don’t want to reward its competition.
What cable channel will they televise the BAFTA? Anyone knows? Will they televise it in the states? California ro be exact?
It’s being aired on BBC America tomorrow night. According to BBC America’s website schedule, it will air at 8:00PM, eastern and pacific time. Check your cable provider to see if you have BBC America. I’m avoiding internet all day tomorrow so I can watch the ceremony in a surprised fashion haha.
BAFTA prediction finished, the Ceremony on the way, I’ve been waiting for the live broadcast.
Strangely enough, I ended up predicting Jackman and Lawrence for Leading Actor and Leading Actress categories….
New Face (incorrect title), I believe, will go to Juno Temple. [I don’t recall seeing the slot available on the AD list though.]
Best Actress should be Lawrence but the Bafta’s may want to distinguish itself from the Oscars and go with Riva and also give her a career award. That will make it interesting.
The Oscar will go to Lawrence regardless.
Will the BAFTAs follow the rest of the herd? I think I hear moo-ing.
