Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the majestic Royal Albert Hall for the

:00:00.:00:19.

EE British Academy Film Awards. Join us now, as we meet some of the most

:00:20.:00:24.

celebrated stars in cinema. Welcome to the Baftas.

:00:25.:00:29.

It's just a lovely place to be be and to be able to show up and just

:00:30.:00:31.

say thank you to people. The fun of the moment. This red

:00:32.:00:46.

carpet and seeing all the fans and everybody arriving, all looking

:00:47.:00:50.

dapper. My mum and step dad are hugely excited. It is a really

:00:51.:00:54.

special evening for me. And tonight, we're in the presence of royalty.

:00:55.:00:59.

Very exciting. Overwhelming. Cold, you know. All the bested a jectives.

:01:00.:01:14.

-- all the best adjectives. It is insane. You go from your normal life

:01:15.:01:19.

and you are like - oh, people are nuts. It is my first time at the

:01:20.:01:26.

Baftas. It is such an honour. It is always so wonderful and strange.

:01:27.:01:33.

Well, I don't know if they are fans, but it is good to have a crowd, yes.

:01:34.:01:38.

I just think it is a state of madness Such a huge honour and

:01:39.:01:41.

achievement to be here and considered with such talent. But who

:01:42.:01:47.

will be taking home a beloved Bafta mask? We are about to find out I'm

:01:48.:01:53.

just so excited to be here. I've got my whole family. It's time for the

:01:54.:01:57.

British Academy Film Awards. Ladies and Gentlemen,

:01:58.:02:02.

please welcome Cirque du I can't tell you how long we had to

:02:03.:02:10.

rehearse that. Dance is my life. I haven't been surrounded by so many

:02:11.:06:30.

thrillingly lithe and muscular bodies since -

:06:31.:06:37.

well, since last night. So the warmest welcome ladies

:06:38.:06:39.

and gentlemen to the Magnificent Royal Albert Hall

:06:40.:06:41.

for the EE British beasts we have found

:06:42.:06:43.

for our annual celebration of all that is wonderful

:06:44.:06:48.

in the world of filmed So wonderful that we cut it down to

:06:49.:06:58.

a healthy two minutes for you to watch. As my dear grandma used to

:06:59.:07:03.

say. Cop of load of this, bitches. You had a guy with a case

:07:04.:07:12.

full of monsters, huh? APPLAUSE

:07:13.:07:34.

A great year in film. We are delighted that

:07:35.:09:17.

their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of

:09:18.:09:19.

Cambridge are here for In fact, we're especially

:09:20.:09:21.

pleased that the Duchess is here as she'll be such

:09:22.:09:24.

a support to her husband who, after watching

:09:25.:09:27.

a recent episode of Who Do You Think You Are?

:09:28.:09:29.

is still recovering from the devastating news that

:09:30.:09:31.

he's related to Danny Dyer. Now, I look down on row

:09:32.:09:33.

after row of the most in their beautiful,

:09:34.:09:36.

borrowed evening wear, by the force of her sheer

:09:37.:09:39.

magnetism, I'm instantly attracted to Emma Stone -

:09:40.:09:40.

star of one of the nominated films, the

:09:41.:09:43.

entrancing La La Land. Hers was a quite

:09:44.:09:44.

brilliant performance singing, dancing, and most

:09:45.:09:46.

astonishingly of all, pretending Also here is master film-maker Ken

:09:47.:09:59.

Loach. APPLAUSE

:10:00.:10:03.

Now Ken Loach could have been influenced by

:10:04.:10:05.

La La Land to capture the glitz, glamour and fun,

:10:06.:10:08.

fun, fun of the British social welfare benefits

:10:09.:10:09.

But instead he went the other way and produced a passionate

:10:10.:10:16.

masterpiece of realism, wrath and outrage.

:10:17.:10:19.

I see two of its stars here, the magnificent Hayley

:10:20.:10:21.

The arrival of Arrival made us all wonder if we

:10:22.:10:35.

could ever find a rival to rival Arrival's arrival.

:10:36.:10:37.

Here is its star, and the star of course of the stunning

:10:38.:10:41.

In Arrival, Amy plays a linguist employed to decipher

:10:42.:10:50.

unintelligible utterings that make no apparent

:10:51.:10:51.

She will be standing by in the wings all

:10:52.:10:57.

evening to help us out as the winners leap up to

:10:58.:11:00.

Now ladies and gentlemen, we applied to the

:11:01.:11:05.

Royal Borough of Kensington Chelsea for

:11:06.:11:08.

planning permission to seat two huge stars next

:11:09.:11:11.

to each other, and, wouldn't you know it, they

:11:12.:11:13.

triumph in the ear-shatteringly brilliant Florence

:11:14.:11:19.

Cary and Student, Hugh Grant. and unquestionably one

:11:20.:11:26.

of the greatest actresses of all time - what kind of

:11:27.:11:29.

Now Miss Streep, I want to call you Dame Merrell, if you were British

:11:30.:11:56.

you would have been Damed five times over.

:11:57.:12:01.

It is a little tradition here at Bafta to ask an

:12:02.:12:04.

esteemed member of our audience to give me a kiss.

:12:05.:12:05.

Oh, thank you, bless you. You know what... Wow. Never in the field of

:12:06.:12:18.

human conflict has my left cheek been so jealous of my right.

:12:19.:12:27.

Now it's time to howl in appreciation of the

:12:28.:12:30.

masterful Moonlight and its luminescent star,

:12:31.:12:31.

This brutal, yet tender gem of a film left me strangely

:12:32.:12:38.

unsettled and I couldn't quite put my finger on why.

:12:39.:12:45.

I didn't know whether to blame it on the moonlight, blame it on the good

:12:46.:12:49.

Eventually, I settled on the boogie.

:12:50.:12:52.

And show my atheism the door, there must be a

:12:53.:12:54.

God because my radar has picked up the

:12:55.:13:05.

wonderful stars of Manchester-by-the-Sea,

:13:06.:13:07.

Michelle Williams and Casey Affleck.

:13:08.:13:15.

Casey is without doubt one of the most

:13:16.:13:17.

And flay my undercarriage and grill my innards if

:13:18.:13:26.

it isn't the breathtaking star of Girl On A Train,

:13:27.:13:28.

Some incredible and unbelievable scenes,

:13:29.:13:33.

particularly for commuters in southern England

:13:34.:13:36.

And look Andrew Garfield is here.

:13:37.:13:43.

Andrew, welcome. What a year you have had.

:13:44.:13:52.

This astonishing true story of a conscientious

:13:53.:13:56.

objector who saved countless lives in World War Two

:13:57.:13:58.

without once picking up a weapon has received

:13:59.:14:00.

rave reviews, with one notable exception.

:14:01.:14:09.

Rifle Association didn't like it at all.

:14:10.:14:14.

Well, I'm afraid we've now reached the legal limit

:14:15.:14:17.

of sycophantic fawning, which is just as well

:14:18.:14:19.

because it's time to reduce the entire year's filmic

:14:20.:14:29.

Let's see who the Russians have decided have won, and the first

:14:30.:14:33.

award. Outstanding British Film,

:14:34.:14:40.

in honour of legendary And to present it the radiant

:14:41.:14:42.

and dazzling stars of the wonderful Lion, the true

:14:43.:14:47.

story of a young boy who gets lost in India,

:14:48.:14:49.

finds his way to Australia, yet has a constant yearning

:14:50.:14:51.

for his mother - what Please welcome, the Lion

:14:52.:14:54.

King and Lion Queen, Hello, I'm so excited to be

:14:55.:14:57.

here, in the wonderful Royal Albert Hall to present

:14:58.:15:18.

this the first Bafta of Yup, to kick off things off

:15:19.:15:22.

we are here to honour this year's Outstanding

:15:23.:15:27.

British Films. I've created this?

:15:28.:15:28.

No, mate... If I was going to create a scene,

:15:29.:15:34.

you'd know about it. I'm sorry, love, but you're

:15:35.:15:38.

going to have to go. Jesus Christ! Who's first

:15:39.:15:41.

in this queue? I am. Do you mind if this young

:15:42.:15:44.

lass signs on first? Now you can go back to your

:15:45.:15:46.

desk and let her sign on and do the job the

:15:47.:15:51.

taxpayer pays you for. What's your name?

:15:52.:15:54.

Destiny. Destiny, I'm Jake.

:15:55.:15:55.

Nice to meet you. This is my younger sister, Star.

:15:56.:15:56.

You want my mom? No, but can you do me a favour?

:15:57.:15:59.

Do one favour. Can you feel this material?

:16:00.:16:02.

Just feel it. What does that feel like to you?

:16:03.:16:04.

I don't know about that. You know what kind

:16:05.:16:07.

of material it is? I'm not a Holocaust historian.

:16:08.:16:09.

I'm a Hitler historian. Then why don't you keep your mouth

:16:10.:16:17.

shut about the Holocaust? The truth is, as usual, Mr Irving,

:16:18.:16:19.

you jump in off the board, spouting whatever rubbish comes

:16:20.:16:24.

into your head in order to avoid This is not because you

:16:25.:16:26.

are a rotten historian. It's because you are

:16:27.:16:33.

a bent one as well. Why should this experience

:16:34.:16:37.

strike one as being beautiful? I, Daniel Blake.

:16:38.:16:56.

CHEERING Well, wow. This is extraordinary. A

:16:57.:18:35.

huge thank you to the academy. And, from all of us, from all who made

:18:36.:18:41.

the film, starting with Paul, Rebecca, who wrote this script and

:18:42.:18:47.

produced, to those who made it, the people in Newcastle, and the

:18:48.:18:52.

distributors, and thank you to the academy for endorsing the truth of

:18:53.:18:56.

what the film says, which hundreds of thousands of people in this

:18:57.:19:02.

country know, and that is that the most vulnerable and the poorest

:19:03.:19:06.

people are treated by this government with a callous brutality

:19:07.:19:09.

that is disgraceful. APPLAUSE

:19:10.:19:18.

And its... It's a brutality that extends to keeping out refugee

:19:19.:19:22.

children that we promised to help, and that's a disgrace.

:19:23.:19:28.

CHEERING But films can do many things. They

:19:29.:19:33.

can entertain, they can terrify, they can take us to worlds of the

:19:34.:19:37.

imagination, they can make us laugh, and they can tell us about the real

:19:38.:19:44.

world we live in, and, in that real world, it's a bit of a difficult

:19:45.:19:48.

speech, sorry! In that real world and it's getting darker, we know.

:19:49.:19:52.

And in the struggle that coming between the rich and the powerful,

:19:53.:20:00.

wealth and privilege, and the big corporations and the politicians who

:20:01.:20:04.

speak for them, on the one hand, and the rest of us on the other,

:20:05.:20:11.

film-makers, and we are all film-makers here, film-makers know

:20:12.:20:16.

which side they are on and, despite the glitz and glamour of occasions

:20:17.:20:22.

like this, we are with the people. Thanks for this.

:20:23.:20:23.

CHEERING The next award is for EE Rising Star

:20:24.:20:42.

and is given in honour of legendary It has the unique distinction of,

:20:43.:20:48.

well, its name, and the fact that it is the only award voted

:20:49.:20:53.

for by the public. Though the way things have been

:20:54.:20:56.

lately, I'm not entirely sure To present it, a beguilingly

:20:57.:20:59.

brilliant and powerful actress, so wonderful in the extraordinary

:21:00.:21:05.

Fences, I am considering having one built around her

:21:06.:21:07.

to keep her all to myself. It's great to be here to present the

:21:08.:21:14.

Rising Star Award. Looking out into the

:21:15.:21:30.

audience, I can see many former nominees

:21:31.:21:32.

of this wonderful accolade - people whose stars

:21:33.:21:38.

most definitely have risen and whose glow

:21:39.:21:40.

we can all now thankfully And that they have all gone

:21:41.:21:42.

on to such wonderful things is testament to these

:21:43.:21:46.

special awards, for recognising, encouraging

:21:47.:21:49.

and nurturing talent, so Something I know each of those

:21:50.:21:53.

:21:54.:21:59.

along peacefully or not? Why can't you help me out a little

:22:00.:22:11.

bit for once instead of dragging me to the lawyers and a funeral parlour

:22:12.:22:15.

and a morgue? We're looking for you.

:22:16.:22:18.

Why? One second, I've

:22:19.:22:21.

just got to log off. Hello, hello, my name is Casey Cook.

:22:22.:22:27.

I'm being held in a basement. I've been abducted

:22:28.:22:40.

with two other girls. I'm going to break the rules.

:22:41.:22:43.

I'm going to write the rules. The car is not going on.

:22:44.:22:57.

The car isn't fucking going on! If another wave catches us down here

:22:58.:23:15.

we will die. We have to climb

:23:16.:23:26.

that tree right now. You have a metal arm?

:23:27.:23:35.

That is awesome, dude. We may lose the small battles

:23:36.:23:41.

but win the big war. Tom Holland.

:24:15.:24:57.

here. Two thank yous right off the bat, Bafta for nominating me and the

:24:58.:25:00.

British public for voting and showing your support. It's tough

:25:01.:25:09.

voting online. Believe me, I know. I obviously have a large list of

:25:10.:25:12.

people I need to thank. Don't worry, I won't do that here, but please let

:25:13.:25:18.

me thank to people sorry, mum and dad, not you. It's not an actor,

:25:19.:25:23.

director or producer or an agent, because we get thanked all the time.

:25:24.:25:31.

I want to thank two acting coaches, because this is a profession that

:25:32.:25:35.

isn't praised enough, because actors don't like to admit that we need

:25:36.:25:39.

help sometimes suddenly Evans and Ben curfew, nick, you helped me

:25:40.:25:44.

become the best video that I could be and you coached me to be Lucas in

:25:45.:25:51.

The Impossible Is. Without those roles, I wouldn't be holding this. "

:25:52.:25:57.

Nick, thank you very much. Everybody else, check your phones. I will

:25:58.:26:00.

shoot you a text. To present the award

:26:01.:26:12.

for Adapted Screenplay a pair of adored actors who met

:26:13.:26:14.

when they both appeared in The Devil Wears Prada

:26:15.:26:16.

and became not just friends, but relatives, when she introduced

:26:17.:26:18.

him to her older sister, Iit really is quite

:26:19.:26:21.

the exclusive dating Please welcome, the

:26:22.:26:25.

indescribably incredible in-laws, Stanley Tucci

:26:26.:26:28.

and Emily Blunt. It's lovely to be here to present

:26:29.:26:53.

the award for adapted screenplay. I can't believe you slept with my

:26:54.:26:59.

wife. We shared a bedroom. We were children growing up together.

:27:00.:27:01.

Anyway, let's hear the nominations. When you love someone,

:27:02.:27:05.

you work it out. I can't do this with

:27:06.:27:08.

you any more, Edward. We're orbiting the Earth

:27:09.:27:17.

at what speed now? 17,544 mph at the time the rocket

:27:18.:27:30.

delivers the capsule That's one hell

:27:31.:27:38.

of a speeding ticket. There wasn't a day I

:27:39.:27:49.

didn't want to tell you. She needs to see how

:27:50.:27:51.

beautiful you are. I was told I don't have

:27:52.:28:12.

to carry a weapon. There are a lot of ways you can

:28:13.:28:18.

interpret what he said? I don't need an interpreter

:28:19.:28:34.

to know what this means. Russia just executed one

:28:35.:28:37.

of their own experts "Many become one" could just

:28:38.:28:39.

be their way of saying Why hand it out in pieces?

:28:40.:28:42.

Why not just give it all over? What better way to force us

:28:43.:28:46.

to work together for once. Thanks to the Academy and the

:28:47.:29:35.

voters. A few quick thanks, I guess I'll start at the beginning with our

:29:36.:29:44.

producers Ian and Mel and Andrew and Harvey Weinstein who championed this

:29:45.:29:50.

film all the way through, including the championing of its unusual

:29:51.:29:54.

structure. Speaking of that structure, to the incredible

:29:55.:30:03.

five-year-old non-professional actor...

:30:04.:30:08.

APPLAUSE A five-year-old non-professional

:30:09.:30:12.

actor who carried this entire film for its first half and is a

:30:13.:30:18.

discovery for the agents. And to Dev Patel, a professional actor who then

:30:19.:30:24.

takes the film and makes it his own for the second half. To all of our

:30:25.:30:38.

other cast and crew, Nicole Kidman, and David and the others, for making

:30:39.:30:43.

this film grow so much and finally and most importantly of all, this is

:30:44.:30:51.

for Gus Davis, our beloved director, who, whatever the merits of the

:30:52.:30:55.

screenplay, it is Gus who took the screenplay and made it into the

:30:56.:31:00.

Butism film about love and sensitivity that it is and to you,

:31:01.:31:04.

Gus, thank you for doing that. Thank you very much.

:31:05.:31:05.

APPLAUSE We must now immediately trigger

:31:06.:31:11.

Article 50 so we can leave the last award and get on with the next,

:31:12.:31:14.

which is for Supporting Actress. And who better to present it

:31:15.:31:17.

than the actor who gets all the parts Vin Diesel

:31:18.:31:20.

and Dwayne Johnson turn down - WHISTLE #

:31:21.:31:52.

so kind. My school was so kind and when it

:31:53.:31:59.

came it drama, theatre, I played almost exclusively female parts. I

:32:00.:32:03.

should say female roles. It sounds better. I played almost exclusively

:32:04.:32:10.

female roles and that's why I've always felt a great solidarity with

:32:11.:32:17.

actresses because basically I was one for quite a long time and it is

:32:18.:32:22.

a great honour tonight for revealing the nominees in the category of Best

:32:23.:32:26.

Supporting Actress. Here they are: It's not easy for me to admit

:32:27.:32:35.

that I've been standing I've been right here

:32:36.:32:37.

with this, right. I gave 18 years of my life to stand

:32:38.:32:42.

in the same spot as you! Don't you think I ever

:32:43.:32:47.

wanted other things? Don't you think I had

:32:48.:32:49.

dreams and hopes? What about my life?

:32:50.:32:51.

What about me? Don't you think I ever

:32:52.:32:58.

wanted other things? It's not...

:32:59.:33:08.

Let me finish. That bitch over there

:33:09.:33:12.

ain't no kin of you. If you can't deal with it any more,

:33:13.:33:37.

I can't tell you any more. I've got to go back inside,

:33:38.:34:02.

do you understand? I don't want to speak

:34:03.:34:05.

to you any more. And one day you'll

:34:06.:34:08.

tell me all about it. You'll tell me everything,

:34:09.:34:29.

who you are, everything. And to all the other wonderful

:34:30.:35:43.

nominees Naomie, Nicole, whom am I forgetting, shit, I'm so sorry, and

:35:44.:35:54.

my shell. August Wilson, you know my father groomed horses at the

:35:55.:35:59.

racetrack and he had a fifth grade education and he was a janitor

:36:00.:36:04.

towards the end of his life when he died at cancer, at a MacDonalds. And

:36:05.:36:10.

the reason why I say that is when he took his last breath one of the most

:36:11.:36:14.

devastating things that went through my mind is - did his life matter?

:36:15.:36:24.

And August answers that question so brilliantly because what he did is

:36:25.:36:30.

he said that our lives mattered as African-Americans. The horse

:36:31.:36:35.

groomer, the sanitation worker. The people who grew up under the heavy

:36:36.:36:41.

brute of Jim Crowe. APPLAUSE

:36:42.:36:48.

The people who did not make it into history books, but they have a story

:36:49.:36:56.

and those stories deserve to be told. Because they lived. And, so,

:36:57.:37:05.

thank you August, thank you Denzel Washington. Thank you for honouring

:37:06.:37:17.

actors and not the sky, because sometimes you know we're sacrificed

:37:18.:37:21.

Howard and Riz Ahmed. For me, the true gift

:38:55.:39:04.

of the Animated Film is that they have absolutely no

:39:05.:39:06.

boundaries to creativity or vision. Whatever the writer or director can

:39:07.:39:09.

dream up, the hugely talented animators can deliver -

:39:10.:39:12.

and this creates an environment where imagination

:39:13.:39:14.

truly can run wild. And I don't trust cartoons because

:39:15.:39:21.

nothing's real. Oh, here are the nominations:

:39:22.:39:32.

How are you going to find your parents?

:39:33.:39:34.

I'm a bit new to the memory thing so I can't say for sure

:39:35.:39:39.

but something tells me they were mostly blue

:39:40.:39:41.

with maybe yellow. That sounds right.

:39:42.:39:42.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to know them when I see them.

:39:43.:39:49.

So, no matter what type of animal you are, from the biggest

:39:50.:40:06.

elephant to our first fox, I implore you, try, try to make

:40:07.:40:09.

Just tell me of our quest and I'll quickly demonstrate my

:40:10.:40:23.

You've got my attention. I promise I won't even blink.

:40:24.:40:30.

I actually don't think I even can blink. Do I have eyelids?

:40:31.:40:39.

Wow. I'm not going to lie. I did not see this coming. You know this film

:40:40.:41:27.

was a whole hearted labour of love, over five years in the making and

:41:28.:41:31.

over the course we tried to get to a a dissolution of childhood. I came

:41:32.:41:37.

across a quote by a great film-maker who said "Every boy wants either a

:41:38.:41:42.

train set or to make a martial arts movie." I never had a train set so I

:41:43.:41:47.

made a movie. Hopefully one that showcases the power of family,

:41:48.:41:52.

imagination and love and above all else, empathy. I believe Hal David

:41:53.:41:58.

and Burt Bacharach when they said "What the world needs now is love,

:41:59.:42:02.

sweet love." But there is another thing there is just too little of

:42:03.:42:05.

and it is empathy, which is what this film is about. So that's why

:42:06.:42:10.

this award means a lot to me and our entire crew. Thanks to the academy

:42:11.:42:19.

for awarding us and to the studio and to my producer, I love you and

:42:20.:42:25.

to our entire cast and crew. You are the best. This was about family. To

:42:26.:42:29.

our familiar lanes loved ones, I love you. Mum and dad, I love you.

:42:30.:42:34.

My world, my partner in crime, my dream team, I love all of you. And

:42:35.:42:43.

tonight with this exquisite shiny metal cudgle non-hand, I'm pretty

:42:44.:42:46.

fond of you guys, too. So, cheers, thank you.

:42:47.:42:56.

On we trot now to Special Visual Effects and to present it,

:42:57.:42:59.

I have issued an executive order for two outstanding actors who,

:43:00.:43:01.

having appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Hobbit,

:43:02.:43:04.

respectively, will both have spent plenty of time working

:43:05.:43:06.

with various peculiar, hairy little creatures.

:43:07.:43:13.

Please welcome the English Rose that is Daisy Ridley and the Welsh

:43:14.:43:17.

For me the true magic of Special Visual Effects

:43:18.:43:31.

is creating something that simply couldn't be conjured

:43:32.:43:33.

Yeah, funny you should say that Daisy,

:43:34.:43:39.

'conjuring' right now as I've forgotten the envelope.

:43:40.:43:43.

Well, luckily enough I can sort that, I've got

:43:44.:43:45.

Not bad. Upstaged, much. OK, let's have a look at the

:43:46.:44:11.

nominees. The Jungle Book.

:44:12.:45:22.

CHEERING Thank you so much to the British

:45:23.:45:55.

academy and the UK in general for allowing us in the country. We

:45:56.:46:01.

really appreciate that. Also, I guess I have to thank the UK for

:46:02.:46:06.

Kipling, a good story we had to work from, and if I can introduce the

:46:07.:46:13.

people most responsible, besides Disney, these three geniuses behind

:46:14.:46:22.

me. Thanks. We wanted to say thanks to Bafta for recognising the over

:46:23.:46:27.

800 artists at MPC film who filmed every blade of grass and tuft of

:46:28.:46:33.

hair made by our designs, so this is for you guys. Cheers. I want to

:46:34.:46:40.

thank my team back in New Zealand. Very talented. Lastly, I'd like to

:46:41.:46:50.

thank all the fathers, mothers, spouses and families of all the

:46:51.:46:53.

others. Without your love and support, we couldn't do it. Thank

:46:54.:46:54.

you very much. Now, much like one of our Trident

:46:55.:47:01.

missiles, I'm going to veer a little off course to celebrate

:47:02.:47:04.

a very important birthday. I'm certain that due

:47:05.:47:07.

to the odd nip here, tuck there and of course,

:47:08.:47:10.

without a chorus of Happy Birthday, so your Royal Highness,

as our President, if you'll lead us Ah, what a shame, I'm told we don't

I want to thank, of course, the independent judges and, if you

didn't win, I am sure you will take it with grace and honour and not

:03:50.:04:12.

a Bafta for most promising newcomer in 1978, I really had no idea I'd be

back so soon. I'm incredibly delighted

:04:16.:04:23.

and honoured to be able to present this Outstanding British

:04:24.:04:35.

close to my heart. As a champion of independent cinema,

Curzon hold a unique place not only in our industry,

:04:44.:04:46.

but in our affections. Not least my own, having been lucky

:04:47.:04:50.

enough to have appeared in six films under their banner,

APPLAUSE Time now to take a look at just some

:05:24.:05:32.

of the highlights, from that wonderful contribution they have

a trail for world cinema. And so to receive the

are concerned about the future. But if, after Brexit,

:09:46.:09:48.

the essential EU support we receive stops, or is not replaced,

then the risks we take with films

that exist outside of the mainstream will become

much harder and all But whatever the outcome

presenting this award tonight. It has been said that a screenplay is

:11:43.:11:50.

not in itself a work of art, it's an invitation to collaborate on the

:11:51.:11:55.

creation of a work of heart. Tonight's five nominees issued that

:11:56.:11:58.

invitation and the results are extraordinary. Let's take a look at

:11:59.:12:00.

the fruits of their labour. All right, I remember you,

:12:01.:12:10.

I was a little curt that night. All right, I was an ass-hole, I can

admit that. But requesting I ran from a serious

musician, it is too far. My Lord, did you just

:12:17.:12:21.

say a serious musician? Because I have an audition next

Sea. This is genuinely overwhelming. I

:14:17.:15:02.

never thought I'd be standing on stage at the Albert Hall. I just

:15:03.:15:07.

want to thank everyone, really, everyone in the room. Thank you,

:15:08.:15:13.

Bafta, so much. Thank you studio Canal, thank you Amazon. I'm very

:15:14.:15:20.

proud to be hit, representing the nominees for original screenplay and

:15:21.:15:23.

all of the screenwriters we have had who have made wonderful films.

:15:24.:15:31.

Screenwriters are in a wonderful position because screenwriters alone

:15:32.:15:35.

understand the thrill of watching an actor become a character that you

:15:36.:15:40.

only imagined. My cast in Manchester By The Sea is among the finest I've

:15:41.:15:46.

ever worked with. It's among the finest casts I've ever seen in a

:15:47.:15:52.

film. Casey, Lucas Hedges, I can't tell you what an honour it is to

:15:53.:15:57.

have worked with you. I'm a single out Casey for one of the most

:15:58.:16:00.

brilliant performances I've ever seen. I'd like to thank my

:16:01.:16:08.

producers, Kimberly Stuart, Chris more. We tried to make a film about

:16:09.:16:15.

looking grief and sorrow in the face and we found that, when you do that,

:16:16.:16:19.

you find love and duty coming with it. Wherever in the world you find

:16:20.:16:26.

loss and sadness, you find love and strength as well. If I may indulge

:16:27.:16:31.

in a personal anecdote, the morning after the presidential election in

:16:32.:16:35.

the United States, my daughter woke up in tears, she didn't want to go

:16:36.:16:40.

to school. My wife insisted that she go. She said, there are children at

:16:41.:16:44.

school who might be frightened and you could help them. She turned 15

:16:45.:16:49.

two weeks ago. She's been to five protests and demonstrations in that

:16:50.:16:52.

time. I'm very proud of her. APPLAUSE

:16:53.:17:01.

I'm very grateful to my wife, I love her very much. Nelly Lonergan, if

:17:02.:17:09.

the nominees for Leading Actor. To her, they were the most

blind obedience, and strike fear Clearly there anything worse

:18:22.:18:24.

was happening. I hear what you are saying,

:18:59.:19:14.

but I don't think That is what you're saying,

:19:15.:19:35.

but that is not what The room looks very different from

:19:36.:20:38.

here. My heart is beating. It's an exciting moment. These clips that we

:20:39.:20:46.

see of the actors are always such moments of heightened emotion, and

:20:47.:20:54.

that so often celebrated. I think it's because they are the hardest to

:20:55.:20:59.

understand in our lives, and the reason that I act is because, when I

:21:00.:21:09.

was a young kid, my mother would take me to meetings for children of

:21:10.:21:15.

alcoholics and there would be lots of kids there and they'd re-enact

:21:16.:21:19.

the person at their home who they were trying to understand. And it

:21:20.:21:26.

was acting, and acting as sort of been there for me ever since. It's a

:21:27.:21:31.

privilege to get to do it for a living. So, if you were wondering,

:21:32.:21:41.

that's why I act. That said, if I had an ounce of the talent of these

:21:42.:21:47.

composers or animators or the acrobats and we saw earlier, I would

:21:48.:21:54.

probably be doing that. But the reason I'm here right now tonight is

:21:55.:21:59.

because of Kenneth Lonergan and his sublime screenplay. It really

:22:00.:22:07.

dignifies everyday lives and their rules with great compassion. I will

:22:08.:22:15.

never be able to express my gratitude to him. And I accept this

:22:16.:22:21.

as a representative of the entire cast, Michelle and Kyle, because

:22:22.:22:27.

that's really how it works. We are all together. This is an honour I

:22:28.:22:32.

will never forget. And cute the academy. Thank you very much. --

:22:33.:22:39.

thank you to the academy. Thank you so much.

Gliding on now with all the grace of a generously moisturised kipper,

:22:49.:22:51.

we come to the award for Director in honour of David Lean.

:22:52.:22:55.

And to enlighten you as to the recipient,

:22:56.:22:57.

a giant of the acting profession, in fact, a big friendly giant.

:22:58.:23:03.

Well, actually, he's a big, friendly, prodigiously talented,

:23:04.:23:05.

Please welcome the utterly untouchable, Sir Mark Rylance.

:23:06.:23:36.

Good evening. All of our work in film, whether you are an actor,

:23:37.:23:43.

designer, producer, whatever you do, all of that is channelled and

:23:44.:23:46.

communicated to the audience through the consciousness of the director.

:23:47.:23:52.

They have the interesting job of holding the audience in their mind

:23:53.:23:57.

and heart. They must ask the question, what does an audience need

:23:58.:24:03.

to know? What do they need to feel? How do they need to know that? How

:24:04.:24:08.

do they need to feel it? Perhaps most interestingly, when do they

:24:09.:24:13.

need to know it and feel it is Tremarco I don't know how you feel

:24:14.:24:18.

these days, but I certainly feel that so many stories in society that

:24:19.:24:23.

I took for granted are being challenged, stories I learned from

:24:24.:24:26.

my grandparents and parents, such as the kindness -- be kind to

:24:27.:24:32.

strangers, love other people more than yourself. Stories I learned

:24:33.:24:37.

from films like It's A Wonderful Life, that people are more important

:24:38.:24:41.

than money, that love is the greatest thing you can experience.

:24:42.:24:46.

In a time when these stories are being challenged, I can think of no

:24:47.:24:49.

time that a film director is more needed in society. These five

:24:50.:24:53.

directors have made wonderful films and have been nominated tonight for

:24:54.:24:55.

a Bafta. Let's look at their work. Sitting there with

:24:56.:25:12.

your name tag on your chest, Anne, in front of a sick man

offering jobs I can't take anyway. Wasting my time,

:25:36.:25:42.

your employer's time, my time, all it does is humiliate

:25:43.:25:46.

me, grind me down. How do you give up

:25:47.:25:51.

on becoming an artist? Because I'm too cynical

:25:52.:26:25.

to be an artist. I think that to be really,

:26:26.:26:28.

really good you have to come from someplace inside that

:26:29.:26:32.

I'm not sure I have. # It's another day

of sun, sun, sun, sun Congratulations. Thank you. Thank

:26:36.:27:41.

you so much. Thank you to the academy. This is an incredible

:27:42.:27:49.

honour. One of the biggest pleasures to actually being here tonight is to

:27:50.:27:52.

be with and to sit with some of the people I made the movie with, tom

:27:53.:28:02.

cat Mike Ross, Selina, Mary, David, my producers, Fred, Jordan, Mark.

:28:03.:28:10.

It's just an honour to make a movie with you and to get to celebrate

:28:11.:28:13.

this with you. I also want to give a special shout out to my friend,

:28:14.:28:19.

former roommate, collaborator of, I think, 12 plus years, Justin, for

:28:20.:28:28.

inspiring me and inspiring all of us with the most beautiful music I

:28:29.:28:32.

could imagine. I want to thank Lions gate UK for all of your work and

:28:33.:28:44.

finally I want to thank Olivia, my love, for inspiring me everyday.

Thank you, so, so much. The next award is made

up of two parts. Leading and Actress,

smuggled a suitcase of fantastic beasts in to America,

:28:57.:28:58.

nominees will have done I give you, the stupendous,

:29:07.:29:26.

the wonderful performances made by each of the truly exceptional

:29:27.:29:39.

talents nominated in the Leading I'm utterly thrilled I don't have to

:29:40.:29:45.

you make the choice. Let us take a look.

:29:46.:29:52.

Death has been my constant companion for almost 50 years.

:29:53.:29:54.

I've been living day-to-day with my body, never

:29:55.:29:57.

knowing whether my mind will desert me.

:29:58.:30:09.

But I have fought, and I have fought and I have fought.

:30:10.:30:11.

Believe it or not, I know something that is going to

:30:12.:30:21.

I cannot explain how I know, I just do.

:30:22.:30:27.

And when I told your daddy he got really mad.

:30:28.:30:29.

The same thing happens every time, I get

:30:30.:30:44.

interrupted because someone wants to get a sandwich.

:30:45.:30:46.

Or I am crying and they start laughing.

:30:47.:30:49.

Or there are people sitting in the waiting room,

:30:50.:30:55.

like me, but prettier and better because maybe I'm not good enough.

:30:56.:31:03.

You think you will control everything, that you have the world

:31:04.:31:05.

Even ridiculous, and I let myself believe it.

:31:06.:31:10.

This parade, who is it really for, Jack?

:31:11.:31:12.

One more campaign stop along the way to the grave.

:31:13.:31:21.

When I saw that woman kissing someone else...

:31:22.:31:23.

Um, oh, well. Thank you so much for this. This is just an unbelievable

:31:24.:32:18.

honour and thank you to Bafta. At the risk of sounding a little

:32:19.:32:23.

redundant between us and Damien, one of the greatest parts about tonight

:32:24.:32:26.

is sitting with all of these incredible people that made this

:32:27.:32:31.

film. We became such a family. So thank you to them on, to Tom, David,

:32:32.:32:38.

sap sandy, Mary, and Justin and Mandy Moore and Gillian and Mike and

:32:39.:32:44.

the list goes on and on, our producers, Fred, Jordan, mark and

Ryan who el vats everything he touches and Damien for this

:32:49.:32:50.

incredible opportunity. Thank you so much. This was one of the greatest

:32:51.:32:55.

working experiences of my life and such a joy. And I don't know if you

:32:56.:33:02.

realise this but right now this and country and the US and the world

:33:03.:33:09.

seems to be going through a bit of a time, just a bit and in a time

:33:10.:33:14.

that's so divisive, I think it's really special that we were all able

:33:15.:33:20.

to come together tonight, thanks to Bafta, to celebrate the positive,

:33:21.:33:25.

the positive - I'm losing my words, I'm sorry, this happens. The

:33:26.:33:31.

positive gift of creativity and how it can transcend borders and how it

:33:32.:33:36.

can help people to feel a little less alone. I'm very grateful to be

:33:37.:33:40.

in this room. I feel very, very lucky. Thank you so much for this,

that very clearly. You've just home,

admiration for the British film community who challenges us and sets

the bar it tell original stories. The joy of tonight is sharing this

:38:37.:38:40.

with the extraordinary family of artists who poured their hearts out

:38:41.:38:47.

on this film every day, led by Emily and Emma and Ryan. Thank you guys.

:38:48.:38:50.

Above all, if you have seen this film, you know this belongs to

:38:51.:38:55.

Damien Chazelle whose passion and reckless ambition are surpassed only

:38:56.:38:58.

by his great humility and generosity. We are so lucky to be on

:38:59.:39:06.

this special journey wi Damien. We love you, thank you all. I want to

:39:07.:39:13.

congratulate and acknowledge everyone in the room. We have spent

:39:14.:39:18.

a lot of time with each other over the last couple of weeks, months,

:39:19.:39:23.

and it has been a pleasure getting to know many of you. There is love

:39:24.:39:27.

in the community and I think it is our responsibility as creators to

:39:28.:39:32.

take it and harness it and take work that inspires joy, hope, empathy and

:39:33.:39:36.

challenges people to dream bigger and bolder. Inspires people to

bolder and in technicolour. I think film, when it is at its best and

:39:48.:39:52.

most inspiring, reveals the fundamental human truth, that there

:39:53.:39:55.

is more tying us together than tearing us apart. Lastly, ladies and

:39:56.:39:59.

gentlemen, what we tried to do and what the all the films that you have

:40:00.:40:03.

honoured to try to do, is demonstrate the great power of art,

:40:04.:40:10.

the great power of artists, the greater power of cinema, that knows

no boundaries, no borders. Our language is universal. Our music is

transcendent and our passion is the glue that binds all of using

about his remarkable career, Thank you, your Royal Highness.

:41:48.:42:08.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is a great honour to be here to talk about a

:42:09.:42:12.

comedy genius. Oh, that's very kind of you, Simon,

:42:13.:42:16.

but tonight is about Mel Brooks. Legend, icon, innovator,

:42:17.:42:22.

and here's something you may not have heard -

:42:23.:42:33.

Jewish. Very, very Jewish. You think you

:42:34.:42:42.

know someone. Mel has won every award known

:42:43.:42:49.

to man, with the possible exception of the Latin Grammy,

:42:50.:42:52.

and I'm sure if he put his mind to it he could salsa his

:42:53.:42:55.

way to that one too. A comic genius who singlehandedly

:42:56.:42:57.

raised flatulence to an art form. He's brilliantly spoofed

:42:58.:43:00.

show business, westerns, horror films, Hitchcock films,

:43:01.:43:02.

silent films, and even This is the man who gave us singing

:43:03.:43:03.

and dancing Nazis - hey, He gave us Hitler on ice,

about Hitler. But that's the thing

with Hitler, they never tell Back to Mel - this man has

:43:28.:43:31.

influenced generations of comedians and writers with his work

:43:32.:43:40.

on the television classic Your Show Of Shows and his 2000 Year

:43:41.:43:43.

Old Man recordings with Carl Reiner. No, that was Sir Alexander

:43:44.:43:46.

Fleming from Scotland. But could Sir Alexander

:43:47.:43:57.

Fleming do a spit take? I'm pretty sure, if we gave Mel

:43:58.:43:59.

a lab coat, test tubes and the right chemicals,

:44:00.:44:06.

he could come up with something just Jewish pencilin. Chicken soup.

:44:07.:44:08.

Absolutely. Always worked for me. Because there is also

:44:09.:44:16.

a serious side to Mel Brooks. He has been the producer

:44:17.:44:19.

of many wonderful films, such as The Elephant Man,

:44:20.:44:21.

Frances and The Fly, to name a few. He also went on to conquer Broadway

:44:22.:44:24.

in 2001 with his musical version of The Producers that won the most

:44:25.:44:27.

Tony Awards in theatrical history, a record even

:44:28.:44:30.

Hamilton couldn't beat. Cheer up, folks. It's like you have

:44:31.:44:31.

been at an awards show all night. The Producers was a life-changing

experience and one of the major high Thank you, Mel, for giving me

:44:45.:44:47.

the opportunity to play the one and only Max Bialystock

and for being such a great For me, it was a print of Young

:45:07.:45:12.

that was the film that resonated as the key inspiration, a shining

:45:13.:45:15.

example of how comedy can be in love with what it is signing up.

:45:16.:45:21.

And, now that Mel has finally reached the ripe old age of 2000,

:45:22.:45:24.

and he doesn't look a day over 1500, folks, it's fitting that

:45:25.:45:27.

Bafta are honouring him with their Fellowship.

:45:28.:45:29.

Let's remind ourselves of his remarkable and extraordinary career.

:45:30.:45:33.

For what you are about to see next, we must enter quietly,

:45:34.:45:36.

I have one question, Doctor Frankenstein.

:45:37.:45:53.

It's very fascinating, I'm afraid I'm going to have to hurt you.

:45:54.:46:00.

Springtime for Hitler, a gay romp with Adolf and Eva.

:46:01.:46:26.

You will never know how much this project excites me.

:46:27.:46:53.

Master, how can you feel that anyone would betray you?

:46:54.:47:07.

You who we will follow until our death.

:47:08.:47:09.

I see your Schwartz is as big as mine.

:47:10.:47:25.

Igor, would you give me help with the bags?

:47:26.:47:30.

You take the blonde, I'll take the one with a turban.

:47:31.:47:34.

And now, let's end this meeting on a high note.

:47:35.:47:42.

Please welcome to the stage, Mel Brooks.

:47:43.:48:36.

I think it's... The Bafta... I think Bafta has made on the Ringley good

:48:37.:49:01.

choices tonight, especially me. -- on the Ringley good choices. But, I

:49:02.:49:07.

want to tell you, to choose an American, why didn't I say it? I

:49:08.:49:16.

want to thank Harvey Weinstein for having nothing to do with this award

:49:17.:49:24.

tonight. Thanks for nothing. I want to apologise to the Duke and Duchess

:49:25.:49:30.

and Prince Philip for the American Revolution. We were young.

:49:31.:49:45.

Seriously, let me confide a little truth that occurred less than 40

:49:46.:49:54.

hours ago. I went to the airport. They asked for my passport. I forgot

:49:55.:50:05.

it. Really. And, er, it wasn't because of old age. I personally can

:50:06.:50:11.

tell you, I've seen Stephen Fry makes three appearances before the

:50:12.:50:19.

show began. I know... And, if I have any rewards for tonight, I would

:50:20.:50:25.

love to meet the girl in the blue dress that came down from the

:50:26.:50:34.

ceiling. I'm still alive. But, seriously, folks,... Er, having an

:50:35.:50:48.

American here is very moving, and getting this a special honour,

:50:49.:50:58.

having been given to people like Hitchcock and Olivier and

:50:59.:51:05.

Pressburger and Powell, you know, champions and idols of my life, is a

:51:06.:51:15.

singular and August honour, and I am very grateful. This is one of the

:51:16.:51:23.

awards that you will not see an eBay, I promise you. EBay has all

:51:24.:51:30.

the others, but not this one. Not this one. Anyway, I thank you from

:51:31.:51:36.

the bottom of my heart. It's... It's been wonderful to be here. Thank

:51:37.:51:43.

you. Oh, by the way, by the way, just a thought, the reason I forgot

:51:44.:51:52.

my passport is because I don't think of England, seriously, I don't think

:51:53.:51:56.

of this place as a foreign country. I think of it is like a vast

:51:57.:52:01.

Brooklyn that just speaks better. That's all. Anyway, less you, thank

:52:02.:52:06.

you, that's all. -- bless you. Ladies and gentlemen, we were here

:52:07.:52:27.

the night that Mel Brooks came to London. No one can ever take that

:52:28.:52:37.

away from us. In closing, I was trying to think, when looking at

:52:38.:52:42.

many films that seem to rise to the top this year, and how pleasing

:52:43.:52:47.

there is such a spread of awards for them, do they have anything in

:52:48.:52:50.

common, some connection between them, and I could only see how

:52:51.:52:54.

different they were. Then I remembered a story David Niven used

:52:55.:53:00.

to tell about a dinner he was at the playwright and screenwriter Charles

:53:01.:53:04.

MacArthur and Charlie Chaplin. MacArthur said Charlie Chaplin, I've

:53:05.:53:08.

got a scene and I want a grand and pompous lady to slip on a banana

:53:09.:53:13.

skin. I get a laugh from such a low-key setup? Do I show the banana

:53:14.:53:19.

skin and then the lady, do I show them together? How do I do it? Can I

:53:20.:53:25.

get a laugh? Charlie Chaplin said, is simple. You showed the lady

:53:26.:53:28.

walking down the street is that you the banana skin. You see the lady

:53:29.:53:34.

and banana skin in the same shot. Then the lady stepped over the

:53:35.:53:37.

banana skin and disappears down a manhole. And I think that's the

:53:38.:53:41.

point about the films that when hold us. They defy expectation and

:53:42.:53:50.

formula. They step over the banana skin and down the manhole. I can

:53:51.:53:57.

only quote the line from Mel Brooks, drive me off this picture. That's

:53:58.:54:02.

it, from EE British Academy Film Awards, thank you and good night.

:54:03.:54:05.

Thank you so much. J Roy Helland and Florence Foster

:54:06.:54:12.

Jenkins! Thank you, Meryl. You keep coming up

:54:13.:54:28.

with interesting characters that are so much fun to put together. La La

:54:29.:54:43.

Land. Thank you to everybody who made the movie and thanks to the

:54:44.:54:47.

academy. This is a very cool druggie, by the way. It's beautiful.

:54:48.:54:51.

-- cool trophy. Jackie. Thank you for all the talented

:54:52.:55:10.

people who supported and accompanied me in this adventure, and thank you

:55:11.:55:16.

of course to Natalie Portman who gave life and grace to these

:55:17.:55:24.

costumes. Thank you. The Bafta is awarded to Arrival.

:55:25.:55:35.

The story of the sound of Arrival is a bit, like the film, it ended up

:55:36.:55:43.

being an international collaboration. A love story.

:55:44.:55:58.

Today is an amazing day. I hope it's like changing. -- life changing.

:55:59.:56:06.

Home. Being British, our heart is love.

:56:07.:56:28.

Our soul is compassion. And I think that we need that to be reflected

:56:29.:56:31.

within our government, so thank you for this. I really appreciate it.

:56:32.:56:47.

Hacksaw Ridge. Unfortunately John can't be here so we will ensure he

:56:48.:56:55.

receives this award. Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

:56:56.:57:05.

I'm proud to be collecting this award on behalf of Stuart Greg, who

:57:06.:57:11.

unfortunately can't be here. This incredible and devotion and hard

:57:12.:57:17.

work of so many talented people, the seemingly impossible was achieved.

:57:18.:57:29.

The Bafta goes to 13. That isn't the problem in and of itself. It's a

:57:30.:57:34.

reflection of a much larger, brutal system of racial and social control

:57:35.:57:42.

known as mass incarceration. My name is Lisa and I had the honour of

:57:43.:57:45.

working with the director to produce 13th. She is so heartbroken not be

:57:46.:57:53.

here, but please know how important this specific award is to her and to

:57:54.:58:02.

all of us. And the Bafta goes to... Son of salt.

:58:03.:58:12.

I'd like to thank the lead actor of the film, and it was a great

:58:13.:58:21.

opportunity to meet the British public. Thank you very much. And

:58:22.:58:30.

thanks to the academy. Linus Sandgren for La La Land.

:58:31.:58:43.

This is overwhelming and extremely generous of you.

:58:44.:59:41.
