BAFTA 2017: My predictions & winners


Tonight there’s not one big awards show  – there is TWO! – the Grammys and the BAFTAs. As I’m British and a movie buff, and more importantly, because I’ll be reporting live from the Royal Albert Hall, I’m focussing on the BAFTA winners.

Like I have done previously with the Golden Globes and the SAGs, I will make my predictions of who/what will win vs. who I personally would like to win.

Here are the main nominees. This list will be updated throughout the night with the winners, which will be in bold.
