British/American Theatre God Mark Rylance, who is also nominated for an Oscar, just won Best Supporting Actor at the BAFTA awards, which are going on in London right now as we speak. He won for playing his quirky, subdued Russian spy living in America for “Bridge of Spies.” It’s a quiet, subtle performance but now he’s GOT to be considered the #2 in the race against Slyvester Stallone in that category for “Creed.” Stallone was not nominated for the BAFTA. Here in Blighty he DID beat SAG double winner British Black actor Idris Elba.
“Brooklyn” won Best British Film.
