It’s BAFTA O’Clock!

BAFTA Winners 2010 List It’s that time again – the British version of the Oscars, without any of the glamour or buzz. As is always the way with the British Academy Film and Television Awards, the local films have pretty much cleaned up. The only real surprises are the awards that The King’s Speech didn’t win. But here’s an interesting dilemma – traditionally, the British winners don’t have as much success at the Oscars. Will we see a major change in the results in a week or two?

Some results are a delight – in particular, Chris Morris winning a BAAFAT for a comedy about suicide bombers – but others are a mystery. Why in the hell is there a separate award for British films if the result is that same as the Best Film catagory?
