BAFTA, the British equivalent of America’s AMPAS — the group that hands out the Oscars annually — has named Boyhood the best film of 2014. It thereby appeared to narrow the odds of the presumed Oscars’ frontrunner¬†Birdman, which has picked up the most trophies for best film during the current awards season. The BAFTA winner has gone on to claim the top honor at the Oscars ceremony every year for the past six years. Boyhood writer/director Richard Linklater also picked up the top BAFTA award for directing but was beaten out for best screenplay by Wes Anderson, the writer-director of The Grand Budapest Hotel.
