I wonder if The Artist will sweep the BAFTAs this year. I'm glad to see Gary Oldman's name amongst the noms, he was snubbed by the party people that are the Hollywood Foreign Press!! I hope the Academy will recognize him as well.
A silent film mainstream audiences aren't going to see, in the running for all the gongs? Of course it'll win…. if only to justify the critical praise it's been getting.
I'm very excited about the BAFTAs, partly because it's the only one that I can watch as it happens! I'm excited for the Special Visual Effects award. I think that one will be hotly contested at the Oscars as well.
I never thought of that: the rest of the major Hollywood awards are broadcast in the middle of the night in the UK! Have fun watching it live!!!
For me the biggest question here is, does this mean Drive and The Help get Oscar nods for Best Picture as well?
Matty – Haven't seen The Help, but Drive better get a look in, or so help me I'll swear off the Academy for good. Fracking Saving Private Ryan haters.
Am I the only one that is bored with the Award season? I really did not know there were so many!
Dude, you're not the only one who's bored a bit. The only one I'm really interested in is the Oscars, the rest are all just like an entree nobody wants to eat….
Tyrannosaur deserves an award. In fact, I'm surprised it isn't up for Best British Film.
Of the other Best Films, it is good to see Drive on there which was brilliant, as was Tinker Tailor. But I'd like The Descendants to win because I think Alexander Payne is a genius.
Drive needs to win Best Film. The End.
I'd like to see Shame, or Tyrannosaur win some kind of award. I'm really tired of watching The Artist dance its way into every award cabinet.
Somehow, I don't think the critical acclaim for The Artist is going to give up so easily….
Honestly, I'm just glad to see Drive getting recognition here. After the Golden Globes it's nice to see a list of nominees that are ACTUALLY the most accomplished films of the year.
Thanks for stopping by dude, glad to have you along. I think the BAFTA's are a more rounded and contemplative selection of awards, to be honest. The Brits don't strike me as being swept up in all the hype of Hollywood, so their choice of films is always less hysterical than the HFPA or the Academy.
i'm kind of over The Artist already, especially as the most successful French Film last year, Intouchables, was heaps better and yet largely unrecognized.
Al – There was a film called Intouchables? 😉
…I haven't seen The Artist yet and I'm sure it's very well made and I'll enjoy but one radio presenter in the UK called in groundbreaking a few days ago. How is a black and white silent movie "groundbreaking"…I'm guessing the radio presenter in question is unaware of film before 1980 then…!
Dan – ha ha, that would have been funny. I wonder how many people rang up to point that out to him! LOL!!
Shocking that The Tree of Life got absolutely nothing!
You and I are gonna disagree on tree of Life, I think Castor. I watched the first twenty minutes of that twaddle and thought it was pretentious garbage. I'm glad TOL didn't get a gong – although I tend to think I'm in the minority on this, unfortunately.
Maybe one day, when I'm feeling suicidal or something, I'll try getting all the way through it!
