So here’s my little review of the BAFTAS. Unfortunately (I’m ashamed to say) last night’s show was the first awards show I’ve watched from beginning to end. I’ve always fallen asleep before the end, or tuned in halfway through.
But anyhow, I did enjoy it last night. My flatmates and I all huddled around the TV, trying to guess who the awards would go to. I was surprised to see how many awards ARGO received compared to DJANGO and LES MIS. But apparently Ben Affleck was awesome (I’m yet to see the film, so it’d be hypocritical for me to judge the film too much).
I was expecting more awards, as I said, for LES MIS and DJANGO. But, of course, the former won Best Sound and the latter Best Screenplay (Tarrentino is awesome – need I say more).
It was good to see Steven Fry hosting the show, though as the only English one in our flat, I was the only one who really knew who he was and got his jokes. But hey! He’s a hero of mine (along with Tim Curry ;P).
Very happy to see Spacey present an award. He will shortly be doing Masterclasses for the BA Acting & Global Theatre students at my UNI… Let the crazy stalking commence…
