BAFTA 2023 winners list: All Quiet from Western Front won big time pushing Everything and Everywhere backstage

 A German war movie, All Quiet on the Western Front, won the best picture award and bagged seven prizes together at the British Academy Film Awards 2023 on Sunday evening. The Irish tragicomedy The Banshees Of Inisherin and a biopic of Elvis took four prizes each.

On a serene Sunday evening with people buzzing into the Filmfare mood, All Quite on Western Front, a perfect depiction of life and death in World War I trenches based on Erich Maria Remarque’s classic novel, bagged the best director award for Edward Berger.

 The other trophies won by the movie were for the screenplay, cinematography, best score, best sound, and best film in the native language. Austin Butler surprised everyone with the best actor winner for Elvis. 
Baz Luhrmann’s flamboyant won not one but multiple trophies as a casting couch, costume designer, and hair and makeup perfectionist. 

Cate Blanchett buzzed with the best actress award for orchestral drama “Tár.” 
Martin McDonagh’s Banshees, a bleak friendship comic story, was named the best British film. 

McDonagh jokes,  “Best what award?”, as the film was shot in Ireland with an Irish crew and cast. Madcap metaverse movie Everything Everywhere All at Once, the Academy Awards front-runner, turned out to be a sore loser, winning a prize just for editing from its 10 BAFTA nominations.

Actor Richard E. Grant accompanied by TV presenter Alison Hammon hosted the ceremony at London’s Royal Festival Hall, where U.K’s movie academy gathered together to meet and greet their third family. Grant cheered the ceremony by quoting, “Nobody on my watch gets slapped tonight,” he said. “Except on the back.”

There was some memorable celebrity presence on the red carpet on the south bank of the River Thames worth mentioning, Colin Farrell,   Cynthia Erivo,   Florence Pugh, Ana de Armas, Eddie Redmayne,  Julianne Moore, Brian Cox, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Lily James. The red carpet also has the privileged presence of the Heir to the throne, Prince William, President of Britain’s Film and television academy, alongside his wife, Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales.

Their presence made the ceremony more bright and added a flare to the red carpet itself. 
With all speeches given in honor of the Late Queen Elizabeth, the ceremony also has many first-timers like Sandy Powell winning an oscar as a first customer designer and was awarded a BAFTA  fellowship.
