The Power of the Dog picked up countless shiny trophies this awards season, and it walked away with a few more at the BAFTAs. The critically acclaimed western won the award for best film, but Dune was the biggest winner of the night with five awards in the craft field.
Jane Campion’s latest film had to face tough competition in Belfast, Dune, Don’t Look Up, and Licorice Pizza in the best film category, but it eventually came out victorious. Campion also collected the award for the best director, becoming the third woman to do so.
Dune came into the night as the top nominee with a total of 11 nods and managed to win trophies in five different technical categories—best cinematography, production design, special visual effects, sound, and original score.
Will Smith cemented his status as the front-runner for best actor, after winning another award for King Richard. The award for best actress went to the underdog Joanna Scanlan for After Love. Troy Kotsur (CODA) and Ariana DeBose (West Side Story) increased their Oscars chances after dominating supporting categories at another awards show.
The 75th British Academy Film Awards were held at the Royal Albert Hall in London on March 13th, with Rebel Wilson serving as a host.
