The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards celebrated the best achievements of film on Sunday night. Many Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild recipients of this awards season also took home BAFTA’s bronze mask. With a few beneficiaries bucking the trend, such as Lion‘s deserving lead Dev Patel, Damien Chazelle‘s charming musical La La Land dominated unsurprisingly.

In case you missed it, here is FRED the ALIEN’s summary of this year’s BAFTA Award winners. Congratulations to all, and thank you for entertaining, moving, and inspiring us at the movies!
