2017 BAFTA Winners: 'La La Land' Takes Home Plenty Of British Awards Too

Just in case you thought La La Land was just an obsession of American critics and film industry insiders, the British equivalent of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences just handed out the BAFTAs (which are basically the Oscars across the pond), and the musical from director Damien Chazelle took home plenty of awards with nary a competitor coming close to rivaling it.

La La Land took home several big awards, including Best Film and Best Director, and it snagged a few other trophies too. Lion also had a decent showing, while the rest of the awards had their love spread out over a great variety of films. Get the full list of 2017 BAFTA winners after the jump.

Other unexpected wins include Casey Affleck taking home Best Actor for Manchester by the Sea (which also won Best Original Screenpay) and Viola Davis winning Best Supporting Actress for Fences. One surprising win though came from Dev Patel, landing Best Supporting Actor for Lion. That category seems to be one of the hardest to predict this year across with board, so it'll be interesting to see who gets the Oscar in that section this year.

Lion also took home Best Adapted Screenplay, so the film could end up making a bigger showing at the Oscars than some might think. It's nominated for Best Picture, and while no one thinks it has a chance at beating La La Land, that doesn't mean other awards are out of its reach. The same can be said for Manchester by the Sea as well.

Frankly, I'm still hoping Moonight is the one to start upsetting La La Land (though I love both equally), but that wasn't going to happen at the BAFTAs since it only just got a limited release in the United Kingdom this past weekend and doesn't have nearly as much buzz over there.

Anyway, here's the full 2017 BAFTA winners list, with each winner bolded.
