Our final BAFTA slideshow of the day is brightly colored things, beginning with Florence Pugh, who loves both color and volume — both of which would be welcomed on the Academy Awards red carpet when she treads it as a nominee next weekend. YES, NEXT WEEKEND. The early Oscars make this feel even more like a gauntlet, and yet do nothing to make the outcome feel any less predictable, nor to make them feel any less like a perfunctory button to more exciting stuff that happened already. Honestly, I think the Oscars have an awards season problem, among its many others, and the only solution would be to steal the Golden Globes date and get itself first in line.
Anyway: THE REST OF THE BAFTAS. Yes, the big acting winners were exactly the same as they’ve been everywhere else.
