What surprises could there be at the Baftas 2019?

The award season is already in full swing, so we can get a pretty good idea of who will win what at the this year’s Baftas.

However, there could be some surprises after the SAG Awards saw Glenn Close win AGAIN for her role in The Wife.

This could see her beat hotly tipped Brit Olivia Colman to the award for Best Actress.

Bohemian Rhapsody could also be big competition for fellow Brit film The Favourite.
