‘La La Land’ Tops the BAFTA Awards: Complete Winners List

Acting awards go to Emma Stone for ”La La Land,“ Casey Affleck for ”Manchester by the Sea,“ Dev Patel for ”Lion“ and Viola Davis for ”Fences“


Damien Chazelle’s musical “La La Land” came on strong to win five awards at the EE British Academy Film Awards, which are presented by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). The film not only took the best film award, but Chazelle was named best director and Emma Stone was named best actress.

The film also took honors for its music and cinematography at a show that seemed determined to spread the wealth as much as possible, handing out the first 15 awards to 15 different movies.

Casey Affleck won the Best Actor award for “Manchester by the Sea.” Denzel Washington from “Fences,” who beat Affleck at the SAG Awards in January, was not nominated in the category.

Viola Davis won the supporting actress award for “Fences,” while Dev Patel took the supporting actor prize for “Lion” over favored Mahershala Ali for “Moonlight” (which, to be fair, has a far lower profile in the U.K. than it does in the U.S.).

Patel’s win took place almost 90 minutes into the BAFTA ceremony, and made “Lion” the first film to win more than one award. Its writer-director Luke Davies had previously won the adapted screenplay award.

Kenneth Lonergan won original screenplay honors for “Manchester by the Sea.”

The “La La Land” wins continued that film’s seemingly unstoppable roll through awards season, giving Chazelle the director awards from BAFTA, the DGA, the Golden Globes and the Critics’ Choice Awards, along with his film’s victory at the Producers Guild Awards and Stone’s wins at the Globes, Critics’ Choice and SAG Awards.

“Moonlight,” which was once thought to be the strongest rival to “La La Land” at the Oscars, was shut out completely at BAFTA, losing in its two strongest categories to the British film “Lion.”

Ava DuVernay’s film “13th” won the award for best documentary. Last year’s Oscar winner, “Son of Saul,” won for the best film not in the English language. Laika’s “Kubo and the Two Strings” scored an upset victory over “Zootopia” in the animated film category, where it was the only nominee not made by Disney/Pixar.

Ken Loach’s “I, Daniel Blake” was named 2016’s Outstanding British Film, while Babak Anvari’s “Under the Shadow” was named the best British debut.

In the craft categories, BAFTA voters honored a large variety of films. “La La Land” won for music and cinematography, “Hacksaw Ridge” for editing, “Arrival” for sound, “Jackie” for costumes, “Florence Foster Jenkins” for makeup, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” for production design and “The Jungle Book” for visual effects.

Tom Holland won the audience-voted award, the EE Rising Star Award, over Ruth Negga and Lucas Hedges.

Going in the show, “La La Land” had led all films in nominations with 11, followed by “Arrival” and “Nocturnal Animals” with nine each. “Nocturnal Animals” was also shut out.

Since BAFTA moved its awards from April to a spot prior to the Oscars 16 years ago, the big winners at both shows have only matched eight times. Last year, “The Revenant” won at BAFTA, while “Spotlight” took the Best Picture Oscar. The year before that, “Boyhood” won BAFTA and “Birdman” won the Oscar. But the winners matched for six straight years prior to that, and a win with the British Academy is considered a reasonable indicator of Oscar strength.

Four of the five BAFTA best film nominees this year were also nominated for the Oscar, as were 14 of the 20 acting nominees. In all the categories given out at both awards, about 60 percent of the BAFTA nominees went on to receive Oscar nominations.

Last year, the same person or film won in 14 of the 19 categories in which both shows give out awards, including three of the four acting categories.

The British Academy Film Awards ceremony took place at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and was hosted by Stephen Fry.
