BAFTA Film Awards 2022 [Full Winners List]


‘Dune’ may have been the big winner at the 2022 BAFTAs with five wins in the craft categories, but it was Jane Campion’s ‘The Power of the Dog’ that took home the coveted Best Picture and Director awards.

The most famous event on the UK film industry calendar has returned for its first live edition since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and with it has come a boost of energy.

While the ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall had a number of no-shows among the nominees – likely due to an awards season schedule that saw the Critics Choice Awards land on the same day – the co- stars stepped up to accept the awards on behalf of the winners, as was the case for Campion, whose Best Director award was won by his “Power of the Dog” frontman Benedict Cumberbatch.

Cumberbatch had just lost the Best Actor award to Will Smith of “King Richard.” Fumbling with some podium notes, he jokingly read his upset acceptance speech before saying, “You don’t lose to Will Smith, you win being around him.”

It was sometimes hard to remember that between the last BAFTA awards at the Royal Albert Hall in February 2020 and this one, a global pandemic had completely upended the industry and virtually every aspect of life as we knew it. Looking at the crowded audience in attendance – where hardly anyone was masked but everyone had shown negative COVID results within 24 hours – it was a pleasant reminder of “before” times.

British music legend Shirley Bassey kicked off the festivities with a catchy rendition of the title song from the James Bond film ‘Diamonds Are Forever’, for which she received a standing ovation. Meanwhile, host Rebel Wilson – whose predecessors include Graham Norton, Joanna Lumley and Stephen Fry – was at his irreverent best and spared no one, especially the British royal family (none of whom were in attendance).

She also made one of the few political gestures at the ceremony by giving Russian President Vladimir Putin the middle finger. Indeed, the invasion of Ukraine by Russia was mentioned only a handful of times during the evening.

However, in one of the awards’ sharpest political statements, Andy Serkis, before announcing BAFTA Best Director for Campion, referenced UK Home Secretary Priti Patel’s slowness to take in Ukrainian refugees in Britain. Earlier, the evening opened with BAFTA President Krishnendu Majumdar paying tribute to the Ukrainian people and filmmakers covering the war, some of whom are BAFTA members.

The red carpet was perhaps the most candid part of the evening, with Cumberbatch and ‘Boiling Point’ star Stephen Graham both commenting on the war in Europe, while a group of climate change protesters dressed as fans jumped the barrier and organized a sit-down demonstration on the red carpet.

” Just look ! Just stop the oil! the trio shouted from inside a makeshift barrier formed around them as confused celebrities hurried past. When asked what they were protesting, one protester replied Variety they called for an end to more investment in fossil fuels by the British government. Another suggested they were inspired by Adam McKay’s Netflix film ‘Don’t Look Up’, which was nominated for four BAFTAs.

Netflix has confirmed that the protest – which included smoke bombs at the red carpet entrance – had nothing to do with the streamer.

Other big winners of the night included “After Love” actress Joanna Scanlan, who exclaimed “Come on!” after receiving her Best Actress award. Meanwhile, ‘CODA’ star Troy Kotsur has become the first deaf actor to win a BAFTA. “I would just like to say congratulations to James Bond, 007, on his 60th birthday. But have you ever considered a deaf James Bond? Kotsur joked through his interpreter.
