BAFTA Awards 2014 was an Event to Remember

While Gravity was the best British film, the overall best movie award went to 12 Years a Slave. There was a slight controversy sparked by Gravity, since it was actually an American film but the special effects team was from the UK. 

As for the best actor, it was obviously none other than Chiwetel Ejiofor. The female thespian that bagged the prize was Cate Blanchett. The director that was the acknowledged top cat was Gravity’s filmic legislator. 

American Hustle and Captain Phillips were movies whose best supporting actors were winners. These were Barkhad Abdi and Jennifer Lawrence respectively. And they positively glowed at the awards. 

Then there was an all-time favorite. Frozen, the animated film was the best in its category. The Great Gatsby, based on a book by F. Scott Fitzgerald, took two awards for production design and creativity in costumes. The happening event had awards that had the shape of a curly haired face that was actually a golden mask. 

BAFTA stands for British Academy of Film and Television Awards. It has an importance equal to Hollywood’s Oscars Academy Awards. There were a few other movies such as Sleeping with the Fishes and Room 8 that managed to snatch the award. 

Ejiofor made a remarkable speech upon receiving the award from Uma Thurman. He spoke of the effort that went into making the movie. Ejiofor especially thanked the director, Steve McQueen, for the backbreaking work he did to make the movie a possibility. It was an experience making 12 Years a Slave.
