BAFTA Movie Awards Winners 2005


59th British Academy Film Awards – BAFTA 2005: How Could Mountain Beat Gardener?

The BAFTA Awards 2005 were a gigantic surprise. While the most nominations were for Fernando Meirelles’ Drama Film ‘The Constant Gardener’, based on the story of a British Diplomat who unfolds the mystery behind his wife’s murder in Kenya; the most awards were taken by ‘Brokeback Mountain’, based on a story of two men falling in love. Mark Wahlberg had declined the starring role for this film, the film has not been shown in theatres of China, Israel was the only Middle Eastern country that showed the uncensored version of this movie and it was officially banned from cinema screening in the UAE. The ‘Utah Jazz’ owner Larry H. Miller took a decision to pull off this Film from his entertainment complex in Sandy, Utah, U.S. two hours before the first scheduled showing, when he got to know that the plot of this film was far away from traditional family values, something he believes is ‘Dangerous’. There were many other controversies regarding this Film within and outside the United States, and still it got away with the most awards!

A list of the BAFTA 2005 winners is as follows:

Best Film BAFTA Award: Brokeback Mountain
