71st British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA's) Predictions

The 71st annual British Academy Film Awards will be held tomorrow, February 18, 2018, at 4pm US EST.

Perhaps the final major Oscars predictor of the awards season is the BAFTA awards. Every year the BAFTA's award the best films to be released in Great Britain in the previous calendar year. Tomorrow's ceremony is to honor the best films released in Great Britain in the year 2017. Now, majority of my readers are American, so the nominees are going to look weird. American release dates don't always line up with international release dates. Tomorrow's BAFTA ceremony does include nominees that were released in the USA in 2016, 2017, 2018, and some that have yet to be released here in the USA. If it was theatrically released in Great Britain in 2017, then it counts here. Like I have with my previous awards predictions articles, I'm going to list the category, all nominees, who I think should win the award, and who I think will win the award based on analysis of experts. Here we go!
