The nominations were announced yesterday for the 2019 Olivier Awards which are taking place on Sunday 7th April 2019, at the Royal Albert Hall.
I have recently re-watched the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper A Star Is Born and I then received this amazing infographic from Betway with fantastic research around awards and music stars which just seemed like perfect timing. While Lady Gaga has been nominated for her amazing turn in A Star Is Born, the transition from music to film is not always a smooth one. This makes for interesting reading in all honesty, to show that they are either a massive hit or a masssive flop!
Alfonso Cuaron, Roma
“The Favourite,” Deborah Davis, Tony McNamara
“BlacKkKlansman,” Spike Lee, David Rabinowitz, Charlie Wachtel, Kevin Willmott
Rami Malek, “Bohemian Rhapsody”
Olivia Colman, “The Favourite”
Mahershala Ali, “Green Book”
Rachel Weisz, “The Favourite”
This was probably the nicest moment and speech when Thelma Schoonmaker was awarded with the BAFTA Fellowship award. Long time film editor for Martin Scorsese and a three time Oscar Winner!
I am now hoping that this means it won’t win Best Picture at the Oscars . . . Not very often does the BAFTA winning film go on to win the Oscar.
