Previewing The 2018 BAFTAs
Make no mistake, the BAFTAs are a major award in the film awards season and have an integral role to play on a film’s road to the Oscars. But far from being a sure-fire indicator of the Academy’s nominees, it likes to play Devil’s Advocate and often looks for the obscure vote. One thing’s for sure, when those names are announced on January 9th there will be some surprises. An omission here is hardly a death knell, but suffice to say, nobody wants to hit a speed bump this close to finish line.
