"Some critics and film industry insiders have been proclaiming it as the film that would sweep all before it through this entire awards season, all the way to the Oscars. ... [BAFTA]'s electorate proved rather more [skeptical]."

There wasn't one film that swept the major categories. Although "12 Years" won best film and best actor, Cate Blanchett took home best actress for "Blue Jasmine." (Via IMDb, Sony Pictures / "Blue Jasmine)
