I LOVE B.A.F.T.A

Bafta - 2015
Bafta – 2015

The 68th British Academy Film Awards, more commonly known as the BAFTAs, were held on  February 8th, 2015 at the Royal Opera House in London. Honouring the best British and international contributions in film and television for 2014.

I watch the Bafta’s every single year.It takes my mind aside from all the different award shows of the season. I mean, don’t get me wrong I love the Golden globes, The Grammys and the Oscars; however there is something special about the Bafta Awards… Mmmmmhhh, what could that be?
Oh yeah… They are British.
(I just had to say that, sorry)

I have always had a huge passion for Film and T.V. I respect what actors and directors do. I love the fact that one single script that comes out of someone’s mind, written on paper in a basement can become a successful movie that will make audiences across the globe cry, laugh, think and feel all kinds of emotions.

(Wouldn’t you agree?)

I grew up going to the movies and I developed an incredible pleasure, mature thinking and an open mind thanks to this medium. Now that I will be attending Mel Hoppenheim’s School of cinema at Concordia University with a major in Film Studies; I am super thrill and excited to actually dive in to the field and get to learn so much more that one can only acquired while going and practicing the subject with professors and other students within the field.

I see myself one day becoming a part of the medium, either on T.V or Film, I know I will be there. The reason why I say this is because “I am tough, ambitious and determined to get what I want at no cost.” I already see myself judging and rating a Movie wile working for a studio or even hosting a show, who knows the possibilities in the field are endless.

Enough about me bragging about my future. Let’s get back to the Bafta’s.

It was such a great joy to see Patricia Arquette take the Bafta for Best Supporting Actress in “Boyhood” (What a great film, honestly), Julianne Moore finally won a big award in a huge category, like finally, seriously, finally she took home the Bafta for
Best Actress in a Leading Role for “Still Alice,” sadly Michael Keaton did not win as everyone though he was going. The Bafta for Best A actor in a Leading Role went to Eddie Redmayne for “The Theory of Everything.” (I will never forget this performance)
