‘Boyhood’ Wins BAFTA Award For Best Picture — Continues Winning Streak
Boyhood is definitely on a roll! The film took home several honors during the Feb. 8, BAFTA Awards including Tk and TK and of course, Best Film.
The film directed by Richard Linklater took over twelve years to make stars Patricia and Ethan as well as up and comer, Ellar Coltrane. As the title suggests, the film follows a young boy (Ellar) as he goes from behind a child to an adult — experiencing several ups and downs along the way.
Boyhood definitely had huge competition at the awards however, being in the same category as, Birdman, The Theory of Everything, The Imitation Game and The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Aside from winning the night’s biggest honor, Patricia walked away with the award for Supporting Actress wearing a stunning long deep red dress — definitely a great color on her!
Richard Linklater Opens Up About His Directing Process
Richard told The Dissolve how his directing style changed over time as he filmed the movie. “I didn’t start when I was 20. I had done a lot of films before I had started this, and I had a visual plan for the whole movie, and there was a tonal thing I was hoping to maintain,” he said. “Consistent throughout. For it to work, it had to just feel real, and any changes are just observational. I had some visual rules from the beginning that I just stuck with the whole way, so I didn’t evolve. That was the whole point.”
Congrats to the entire cast and crew of Boyhood!
