BAFTAs go to La La Land

La La Land did best on the night, taking several BAFTA awards in London this morning NZ time.

Weta’s work on The Jungle Book was among thewinners, with the live-action film taking the Special Effects award. Also coming away a winner was John Gilbert, whose work on Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge won the award for Best Editing.

The awards were a mix of the expected (I, Daniel Blake and Under the Shadow were winners) and the less expected (13th won the doco gong, Toni Erdmann didn’t win).

Daniel Molloy’s Home, here last year at Show Me Shorts, took the Best Short gong.
