‘All Quiet On The Western Front’ Leads British Film Awards—Teeing Up Oscars Success



All Quiet On The Western Front was the winningest film at Sunday’s British Academy Film Awards, possibly pointing to success ahead of next month’s Academy Awards ceremony, where the German-language war film is one of the most-nominated movies.

Key Facts

All Quiet On The Western Front, a film about World War I, won seven awards at the BAFTAs, including Best Film and Best Film Not In The English Language.

The Banshees Of Inisherin and Elvis tied for the second-most awarded films, with four wins each.

The Oscars and the BAFTAs typically award different films for Best Picture, but the British awards are a strong predictor of winners in other categories; last year, the winners matched in 15 of 19 shared categories, according to The Wrap.

Other standout winners included Austin Butler, who won Best Leading Actor for his portrayal of the King of Rock and Roll in Elvis and Cate Blanchett, who won Best Leading Actress for her role in Tár.

Key Background

The Banshees of Inisherin won three trophies at January’s Golden Globes ceremony, the most awards, followed by The Fabelmans and Everything Everywhere All At Once, which both won two. At the BAFTAs, Gandhi was the most-nominated film, with 16 nods, followed by All Quiet On The Western Front and Atonement, which both had 14. Everything Everywhere All At Once received the most Oscar nominations this year, at 11, while All Quiet On The Western Front and The Banshees of Inisherin each received nine.
