BAFTA 2020: My predictions and the winners (updating live)

Tonight is the 2020 BAFTAs – Britain’s biggest film awards ceremony! But who is going to take home one of those coveted golden masks?!

The acting categories are basically a lock since the same people have been winning throughout this whole awards season, but surprises can sometimes happen! However, some categories are still wide open and are hard to predict, but I’m expecting a fairly clean sweep from 1917.

As usual, here is a complete list of the nominees and who I think will win vs. who I want to win. I will be updating the winners as the ceremony happens so keep checking back. The winners are in bold.
