The 2014 BAFTA Awards are underway in England and the best of the best are being honored when it comes to films and filmmakers that made waves in 2013. One of the most coveted awards of the night is the Best Director, a category that has been becoming more and more clear as each award show passes.
While the category has heavyweights like David O. Russell and Martin Scorsese, Alfonso Cuaron seems to be staking his claim as being capable of hanging with the best of them. Despite stiff competition, Cuaron took home the BAFTA for Best Director for his work on Gravity.
