All Quiet on the Western Front” director, who was told not to talk about the war…


Edward Berger, director of “All Quiet on the Western Front,” based on the novel of the same name by Erich Maria Remarque, won seven awards for Best Director. Although he was told not to talk about the war in his acceptance speech, the director of this film did not turn a blind eye to the history of the war and the current world situation.

He said, “How could this have happened? Thank you. In the car to take me to the venue, I was told, ‘You can do whatever you want, but just don’t talk about the war!’ but you have already broken that rule! The film was shot in the Czech Republic. Most of the crew were Czechs from a country that had been invaded twice by Germany, and I worked with many French and German actors, and one Austrian actor. (The Austrian actor is) Felix Kammerer, the lead actor. Thank you. Without you, we would not be here. Among the camera crew was an Englishman whose grandfather fought in the war. And today, another war is going on in Ukraine. In five days it will be one year (since the war started). There are no heroes there. In any war.”


Tears in Prince William’s eyes as he mourns Queen Elizabeth.


Queen Elizabeth II, the British monarch for 70 years and beloved by her people, passed away on September 8, 2022, and this year’s BAFTA also included a memorial service for Queen Elizabeth. The audience was treated to a video tribute to the Queen and an audio clip of the Queen speaking about the importance of arts and culture, saying, “Through the talents of artists – writers, actors, filmmakers, dancers, musicians – we can see the magnitude of culture and the human element we all share.


Helen Mirren, who played Queen Elizabeth in the movie “The Queen” and has attended teas and parties with the Queen, gave the speech at this time, and Helen said she cried during rehearsals.


She said, “Her Majesty the Queen has effortlessly brought us together by film and integrated us into the story. Her Majesty, you are our lead star, and on behalf of BAFTA, I thank you for all that you have done for our film and television industry,” said Prince William, who was attending the awards ceremony with Princess Catherine. Hello!

 *The award has two connotations: “a star representing the country” and “a star in a leading role.

Everything Everywhere All at Once” tease and “Sex Education” newcomer showdown.


The cast of “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” which is sweeping this year’s film awards, also attended the BAFTAs. Jamie Lee Curtis, a popular 60-something with a great sense of humor, was teased during a red carpet interview by an interviewer with a “sausage hand” on his hand. Jamie Lee Curtis, who is popular in her 60s, showed her composure as expected when she replied, “I have to pick my nose.





Also competing for this year’s Rising Star Award were Emma McKee and Amy Lou Wood of “Sex Education” fame. Emma and Amy had both been nominated at the same time for the British Academy Award for Best Comedy Actress in Television in 2021, which Amy won at that time, but both have appeared in many films recently, and Emma won this time.
