BAFTA Predictions: Who we think will take take home what
While Birdman and Boyhood are the most likely contenders to battle it out for Best Film, there are some more certain predictions ahead of this year’s Baftas.
JK Simmons looks to be in no doubt of winning Best Supporting Actor for his role in jazz thriller Whiplash, having already won at the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The Lego Movie may have been snubbed from the Oscars, but it will most likely win at the Baftas as the biggest animation box office hit.
Eddie Redmayne looks set to pit Benedict Cumberbatch to the post in the British biopic battle, but The Imitation Game should still fare well elsewhere.
