OSCAR WATCH: BAFTA Awards


The Brits have sounded off and their pick for Best Film of the year is "Roma", giving Alfonso Cuaron's black-and-white epic a significant heading into final Oscar voting. After dominating the nominations, "The Favourite" was another BAFTA favourite with 7 awards, winning both actress categories and Outstanding British Film (where many expected "Bohemian Rhapsody" to prevail). As the Oscars are fast approaching, the following wins could be a preview for what's to come. Here they are:
