Awards season is in full swing! Coming-of-age drama Boyhood – shot over 12 years with the same cast – won the top awards at last night’s BAFTAs. It won best film, best director for the absent Richard Linklater and best supporting actress for Patricia Arquette. Accepting her award, Arquette said Linklater had made a film which had broken “the rules of cinema … you made an ordinary story extraordinary.”
Eddie Redmayne scooped the best actor prize for his role as Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. Redmayne said it was “one of the best nights of my life”. The film was also named outstanding British film and won a third award for its adapted screenplay.
Julianne Moore won the leading actress prize for her performance as a linguistics professor with early-onset Alzheimer’s. Collecting her award, she thanked “everybody in the Alzheimer’s community who were so generous with their time and telling me their experiences”.
The ceremony at London’s Royal Opera House was hosted by Stephen Fry.
