Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri - 2018 BAFTA Winners

This past weekend, our friends across the pond doled out the British equivalent of the Oscars with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, or the BAFTAs. The honors sometimes serve as a prognosticator of what might unfold at the Academy Awards, and since the awards for Best Film and Best Director ended up being split across two different movies, that makes the Oscar race all the more interesting.

The 2018 BAFTAs handed out last night gave Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri the top prize for Best Film, but it wasn’t director Martin McDonagh who ended up winning Best Director. Instead that honor went to The Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro. Could this be a preview of how the Oscars will go down next month?
