This weekend, BAFTA will announce their winners. Basically, it is the British equivalent of the Academy Awards. In recent years, they have had significant influence over the Oscar race. In 2007, Marion Cotillard won the BAFTA and went on to win the Oscar. Same for Tilda Swinton in the Supporting Actress category. The Hurt Locker swept the BAFTAs last year and then went on to win six Academy Awards, more than most people expected. Back in 2002, The Pianist took home Best Picture from the BAFTAs, then had a very strong showing at the Oscars, winning Best Actor (Adrien Brody) and Best Director (Roman Polanski). Most certainly, we will learn a thing or two from the winners this weekend. Here are our predictions:
