Our top tips for the big winners at the 2015 Bafta Awards

The 2015 Bafta Awards are bearing down on us and this Sunday, London's Royal Opera House will host the cream of British film, and beyond.

So who is going to win big at this year's Baftas? Who is going to win so many theatrical mask trophies that they'll need an armed escort home?

Here are who we think will be winning big on Sunday...

 

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Wes Anderson's hugely-adored instant classic leads the charge with 11 BAFTA nominations including Best Film, Best Director, Leading Actor and Original Screenplay, amongst others.

Having already scooped the Golden Globe for Musical or Comedy Best Motion Picture, and nine Oscar nominations, we're certain that the team behind The Grand Budapest Hotel will be leaving the Royal Opera House with an armful of awards.

 

Rosamund Pike

London-born Rosamund is currently celebrating having being nominated for an Oscar, a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award and a BAFTA for her performance in David Fincher's Gone Girl.

Despite losing out at the Golden Globes to Julianne Moore for her performance in Still Alice, the home crowd will see the former Bond girl picking up the Leading Actress award at the BAFTAs.

 

Eddie Redmayne

The man who had the momentus challenge of portraying the early life of Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything  is reaping the rewards of his incredible performance.

Redmayne, who expressed his excitement at bagging a BAFTA nomination, has already picked up a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award for his portrayal as the theoretical physist, and is now gunning for the Leading Actor BAFTA to add to his straining mantlepiece.

 

The Imitation Game

Boasting nine Bafta nominations this year, Benedict Cumberbatch's thriller about Alan Turing solving the Nazi's Enigma code during WWII goes up against The Theory of Everything in most of its categories.

Co-star Keira Knightley has already has already given her endorsement for Cumberbatch to win the Oscar for best actor.

Chances are that The Theory of Everything might bag the Best Film and Leading Actor, we think it's likely that it'll share the spoils with The Imitation Game on the Adapted Screenplay and Outstanding British Film awards.

 

Miles Teller

The 27-year-old from Pennsylvania has a big 2015 in store, with appearances in Whiplash, Two Night Stand and as Mr Fantastic in the Fantastic Four reboot.

While the Whiplash team are crossing their fingers to secure Best Director, Best Editing and co-star JK Simmons is up for Best Supporting Actor, it is Teller that is after the big prize.

Teller, who gave literal blood, sweat and tears for his role as the aspiring jazz drummer, is nominated for the public-voted EE Rising Star Award alongside Jack O'Connell, Margot Robbie, Shailene Woodley and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

If the Whiplash star wins the award, his name will join the likes of Will Poulter, Tom Hardy, Eva Green and James McAvoy who have previously picked up the award.
