The British (and friends!) braved the bitter English weather at the Royal Opera House last night for the prestigious BAFTA Awards (hosted by a cuddly Stephen Fry). Find here a full list of those who emerged victorious.
Some have commented that last night’s ceremony may be viewed as a rallying cry for patriotism with the results giving a solid nod to the best of the British and subtle ‘up yours’ to the Americans….an interesting theory considering the three big awards (Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor) were awarded to shamelessly ‘gung ho America’ flicks….
All in all I feel it’s a pretty predictable pile of results, with each winner pretty obvious, but most arguably deserved… (sure Argo didn’t float my boat but I seem to be alone on that one)
But enough from me: check out the list for yourself.
