BAFTA awards 2019

The season of film and television series awards seems that it had started. All these great film festivals are known, expected and watched worldwide. People are waiting to see the movie’ stars parade on the red carpet, to see the movie’ stars outfits, to see if their favorite movie won something and I could enumerate a wide number of other reasons why people are waiting for these glamorous events.

One of the most important film events is the BAFTA awards. These awards are equally important as the Oscar awards, but in England.
In the following rows of this article I will talk about what should we expect from this year event. If you are interested in this topic, and you might be, then you should continue your reading session.

What are the BAFTA awards?

BAFTA is the short name for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. The purpose of these awards is to offer the recognition to the British film contributions and to the International film contributions as well.
At the beginning, in 1947, it was just the British Film Academy but later when they merged with the Society of Film and Television the name BAFTA was born. This happened in 1976.
The main purpose of the Academy is to promote and add a contribution to the movie industry, by promoting and rewarding the best activities in this field.
The first location for the event was at Odeon cinema in Leicester Square from London until 2007. After this year the ceremony took place at the Royal Opera House until 2016 and in the last years the chosen location for this event is at The Royal Albert Hall.

What about this year

This year the event will take place at the Royal Albert Hall in February 10. Considering the wide number of movies of a great quality made this year and the important names that were nominated for the awards the tension is quite big. The Golden Globe festival surprised people a little this year. Even if the movie “A star is born” was considered one of the favorites and it received a wide number of nominees, it seems that “Bohemian Rhapsody” charmed the jury.
I do not know if you should expect the same results here, considering that one of the favorites is “The favorite”, which is also about a Queen, but a real one this time. I have seen the presentation. I must recognize that I did not seen the entire movie, but I am really tempted to see it, considering that it received 12 nominees and according with many important publications such as “The Guardian”, it is the favorite indeed.
