The Power of the Dog has won the BAFTA for best British film and director‚ with Benedict Cumberbatch collecting the award for his performance as a ferocious rancher in 1920s Montana. The British Academy of Film and Television Awards‚ hosted by Rebel Wils‚ are held in London every year. The awards are televised in India on SonyLIV‚ and Cumberbatch was present in person to accept the award. But while the 'Silent Hill' actor took home four BAFTAs this year‚ the 'Best Actress' category was won by Will Smith‚ who played the father of Serena and Venus Williams in 'King Richard'. The Power of the Dog won both the best director and best picture awards at the BAFTAs. The Dune star Will Smith won the best actor prize for his role as Richard Williams in King Richard while Joanna Scanlan won the best actress prize for her performance in After Love. Despite the 'Power of the Dog' winning both best film and 'Best Director'‚ there were several other notable winners‚ including 'Dun' and 'King Richard'. The 2022 BAFTAs were notable for the diversity of its winners‚ and The Power of the Dog is considered a strong contender for the Oscar.
