Predict The 2019 BAFTA Awards Winners Contest

By Matt Neglia 

The BAFTA’s will be held this Sunday on February 10th 2019. As one of the last major precursors (and with Academy crossover) they can sometimes help sway our final Oscar predictions or reinforce our beliefs heading into Oscar night. As we have done all season long here at Next Best Picture, we are holding a contest to see who will get the most categories correct. All categories must be guessed on with the submission deadline being the day of the awards, before the winners are announced.

Click below to enter in your picks for the contest. Best of luck and enjoy the show!
