McCarten wins BAFTAs with Everything

Boyhood was crowned grand champion in London, while the Anthony McCarten-scripted The Theory of Everything took three awards.

Oscar nominated? Better believe it, baby. Anthony McCarten preps for the glare of the red carpet attention.

Yeah, baby.
Anthony McCarten takes winning in his stride.

Having gone into the evening with 10 nominations The Theory of Everything hit the podium early on, taking the Outstanding British Film award. McCarten later won the Adapted Screenplay gong before Eddie Redmayne added to his collection of Best Actor awards.

While Boyhood took the Best Film gong, The Grand Budapest Hotel was the most-awarded title on the night, collecting five awards from its 11 nominations.

Nominated for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Weta teams missed out on the VFX gong, which went to Interstellar.

The front of camera awards were a repeat of the SAG awards, which themselves were a repeat of the Golden Globes. Patricia Arquette, Julianne Moore, Eddie Redmayne and JK Simmons all repeated their wins.

Going into the evening, Mike Leigh’s Mr Turner had been the most obvious snub when the nominations were handed out, receiving only three craft nominations. BAFTA went some way to redressing that slight by presenting three-time BAFTA winner Leigh with its highest honour, the Fellowship award.
