BAFTA Awards 2022 Winners

BAFTA Awards 2022 Winners

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) hosts an annual award event to recognize the greatest British and worldwide achievements to the film industry.

The 75th award ceremony was conducted on March 13, 2022, in London's Royal Albert Hall.

Due to the challenges presented by the pandemic, it was earlier pushed to a virtual stage in 2021. After a year's layoff, the much-anticipated film extravaganza adorns prominent movie stars on the red carpet.

The British Film Academy head, Krishnendu Majumdar, inaugurated the 2022 programme, and taking back the reins, Australian actor-comedian Rebel Wilson hosts the event once more after rocking the ceremony in 2020.

Denis Villeneuve's Dune received 11 nominations, including Best Film, and five prizes in below-the-line categories, including Original Score, Cinematography, and Production Design.

Kenneth Branagh's semi-autobiographical Belfast had six nominations and won for Outstanding British Film, while Paul Thomas Anderson's Licorice Pizza won for Original Screenplay, capitalizing on one of its five nominations.

But it was Jane Campion's The Power of the Dog, which won Best Film and Best Director, that took home the top prizes. As a result, this New Zealander became the award's third female winner in its history.
