The Most Important Things You Missed From The BAFTA Awards
The two highest accolades for women went to Renee Zellweger and Laura Dern, who took home the awards for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively. Accepting the award for her scene-stealing performance in Marriage Story, Laura paid tribute to her mom, Diane Ladd, who won the same award when Laura was six years old for Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. When asked backstage about her Dernaissance, she said, “Roles are changing because culture is changing. People say, ‘Wow, you’ve played a couple of powerful women this year.’ Well, because there are a couple of powerful women to play. Women are CEOs, heads of finance, and divorce lawyers. And they weren’t 15 years ago.”
