LEADING ACTOR

  • BRADLEY COOPER A Star Is Born
  • CHRISTIAN BALE Vice
  • RAMI MALEK Bohemian Rhapsody
  • STEVE COOGAN Stan & Ollie
  • VIGGO MORTENSEN Green Book

The Bookies Favourites:

  1. RAMI MALEK Bohemian Rhapsody 4/7
  2. CHRISTIAN BALE Vice 3/1
  3. STEVE COOGAN Stan & Ollie 7/1

Our Winner:

  • Steve Coogan (Stan & Ollie) – It may be a little jingoistic, but there is something poetic about a British award playing second fiddle to the bold and brash American equivalent giving one of its top awards to an English comedian playing and English comedian who went off to America for riches and returned home for a twilight farewell. There are points in the film where Coogan gets his movement so precise you would swear he had been possessed by the real Stan Laurel. It really is a shame though that John C Reilly isn’t also up for an award for his equally superb performance as Oliver Hardy.

The BAFTA Winner

  • Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody)

A Star is Born 2018 A worthy remake that grew on me as it went. Both lead roles were played very well and the songs were good, but I didn't buy some of the emotional bits and the British manager was just awful. Gordon 3.5
Bohemian Rhapsody 2018 The acting is atrocious, the story so cleansed it isn't really a biopic at all and the cinematography gives everything a TV movie colourised glow that makes everything look staged. But for all that I still found myself enjoying the cheesiness of it all. Gordon 3
Green Book 2018 if you take it as a biopic of the driver and not of Don Shirley or an exploration of the Green Book itself, then it is a great film. Viggo was brilliant in his lead role and the chemistry with Ali worked well. Gordon 4
Stan & Ollie 2018 Telling the story of how the magic ended, this is in many places this is an incredibly sad film, but Coogan and Reilly capture the characters so well that their beautiful friendship and fantastic comedy shines through. Gordon 4
Vice 2018 Initially Vice appears to be just an excuse to re-do the Big Short formula and for Bale to dust off his Batman voice, but in fact it is another fascinating docu-dramedy from the master of this new genre, Adam McKay. Gordon 4
