From Will Smith to Jane Campion, discover the winners of the Bafta 2022

After a ceremony without an audience due to the health crisis last year, the Bafta 2022, which was held on Sunday March 13, was marked by the conflict in Ukraine. British actors Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Graham and Australian actress Rebel Wilson, who presented the ceremony, showed their support by displaying ribbons in the colors of Ukraine and speaking out to denounce the abuses committed. The ceremony, which was also particularly noted for its great diversity, took a political turn.

Are the Bafta premonitory of the Oscars ceremony? The future will tell. But the big winners of the British ceremony are the favorites of the American awards ceremony, which will take place in two weeks. The dark and psychological western The Power of the Dog was crowned best film at the Bafta and won New Zealand’s Jane Campion the prize for best director, making her the third woman to win the Bafta for best director, after China’s Chloé Zhao (nomadland) last year and American Kathryn Bigelow (Minesweepers, in 2009). With eight nominations, the New Zealander’s film was in a strong position, having already won the Golden Globe for Best Dramatic Film and Best Director. American Will Smith won the Best Actor award for his role in The Williams Method – directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green –, where he plays the father and coach of tennis champions Serena and Venus Williams. The 53-year-old actor is also up for the Best Actor Oscar. The English Joanna Scanlan, meanwhile, won the prize for best actress for her performance in After Love, by director Aleem Khan, opposite actresses Lady Gaga, Alana Haim, Emilia Jones, Renate Reinsve and Tessa Thompson. We note that the film by Denis Villeneuve, Duneshuge success in theaters, leaves almost empty-handed, only honored with the prize for best music for Hans Zimmer, and the prize for best photography for Greg Fraser – also chief operator of The Batmancurrently in theaters.
