12 Years A Slave was the biggest loser at the 2014 Bafta Awards (see full winners list) by Eyes and Voice

Last night, February 16th, at the 2014 Bafta awards sees ’12 Years a Slave’ go home with only 2 awards after all the ‘hype’ since the Bafta awards nominations was announced earlier in January.

EyesandVoice.com can tell you that, when the nominations for Bafta 2014 awards was announced, everybody and publications tipped ’12 Years a Slave’ to win big – but on the night, expectations was cut short.

The breath taking movie which was also a true life story, directed by a British direction, Steve McQueen, it’s main actor, Chiwetel Ejiofor is also British and the film also featured other British actors like Michael Fassbender (ok, Irish) was denied almost all the award categories it was nominated for.

I taught Bafta was, British Academy of Film and Television Arts – a British award event…

The movies also featured big names like Brad Pitt and an amazing supporting actress, Lupita Nyong’o – Who lost all the awards she was nominated for on the night and has not yet won any awards for her role in the movie in any award show.

Steve McQueen and Chiwetel Ejiofor sat down as they watch Gravity win big on the night, Eyes and Voice can report.

Chiwetel Ejiofor won best actor at last night Bafta 2014 awards – when he was announced as the winner on the night, you could see the sign of relief on his face, as to say, Finally… one award for me.

Watch Video below:

As the show was running to the close, it was time for the last two awards.

’12 Years A Slave’ was announced as the winner of 2014 Bafta awards for ‘best film’.

Steve McQueen gave his speech and you could see Brad Pitt running around the stage – his body language could tell everyone that he was trying to distance himself from the movie.

Watch Video below:

Gravity won six (6) awards and ’12 Year A Slave’ won only two (2) awards, Eyes and Voice can report.

Bafta is a British film and television award ceremony right?, So the question here is:

Can  ‘Gravity’ can be considered a ‘British’ film? – so how did it win the ‘Best British film’ award then?

Why did ’12 Years a Slave’ and Steven McQueen lost all their awards to other movies?

1. Because ’12 Years a slave’ is a slave movie…?

Answer: Yes! Probably yes…

2. Was the hype of winning big at an awards event good for ’12 Years a Slave’?

Answer: No! Probably not. For its kind of movie… ‘Hyping’ or tipping it to win big at an award show leads to it’s down fall (the movie not winning anything at all).
