The BAFTA Awards — which are essentially the across-the-pond-Oscars — were handed out this weekend and, to no surprise, Damien Chazelle’s musical La La Land cleaned up by picking up five trophies including Best Film, Best Actress, and Best Director.
Right after taking home a record number of Golden Globes, Damien Chazelle’s La La Land once more came out on top with an astonishing 11 nominations for the BAFTAs. The British Academy also gave recognition to films from their own country, namely the Cannes-winner I, Daniel Blake.
The Mick Jackson-directed Denial has landed a September 30 release date. It stars Rachel Weisz and Tom Wilkinson.
The film follows the true story of Deborah Lipstadt, who was sued by the most notorious Holocaust denier, David Irving, who puts the task on her to prove the Holocaust actually happened.
