Awards season is heating up and we've been delighted to host Unlimited screenings of several frontrunners in this year's season including hot favourites La La Land and Moonlight. So we wanted to get the lowdown from Unlimited members themselves. What are the hot tips for the upcoming BAFTAs this Sunday?
We surveyed over 7,500 Cineworld Unlimited Card members and found that four in ten of you are in agreement that out of the nominees, La La Land should win Best Film.
Intriguingly, the Merc with the Mouth, Mr Deadpool himself, also came out as a clear favourite: nearly half (43%) of you think Deadpool should have been in the running for Best Film. Meanwhile 37% of people think that Fences Oscar nominee Denzel Washington should have snagged Best Actor rather than Best Supporting Actor.
Given we've got awards on the brain we can proudly unveil the following delightful food portraits of some of this year's key contenders, designed by food artist Prudence Staite. You've never seen Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling or Denzel Washington quite like this before.
Wondering how it's done? Well prepare to feel hungry as Prudence made each of the portraits from from 18 kilograms of sweet and salt popcorn, 447 jelly blackberries, 1,020 chocolate raisins, 635 chocolate toffees and 290 chocolate honeycomb pieces. How sweet is that?
Interestingly, a third of people (33%) believe that Eddie Redmayne has been overlooked for his performance in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Similarly Felicity Jones appears to be the nation’s new sweetheart with 39% of respondents stating she should have been nominated for Best Actress for her performance in last year’s blockbuster Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
When it comes to who should win Leading Actress out of the BAFTA nominees, the jury was split between Emma Stone in La La Land with 26% of the votes, who came neck and neck with Emily Blunt for her performance in The Girl on the Train.
