BAFTAs 2012. Too depressing for words. I have gone into mourning! In my very humble opinion, the best films, directors, and actors did not win through. Enough said. :(

The full list of winners is here:

Makes me laugh that the film that swept the board was not shown even once at my nearest multiplex. Can only hope that they decide to screen The Artist now, because I do want to see it – but I suspect not. Philistines!

I know you're not happy, but I'm glad that TTSS received a couple of awards, and especially as they were without singling out Gary Oldman from the cast as a whole. I love that movie very much.

Was watching the ceremony on telly with my daughter, who had seen both The Help and The Skin I Live In, which she had rated highly. So she was pleased that they were recognised.

Meanwhile our preferred rising stars are already doing extremely well... :-)

Let me amuse you this way:
"The Artist", French MUTE film. THE film everyone went to see.

Yet, whenever a mute movie is shown in the "Cinemathèque", with a live pianist... there is something like 10 people to go and watch it.

I still haven't watched "The Artist", I'm too busy watching REAL old movies. Not an attempt to recreate one. :)

(this is actually not a real critic, I'm just amused by the huge success of this movie)

I haven't seen it either. But, I have zero intention of doing so. I don't like Silent Movies only talkies. The Astaire and Rogers films are the earliest films that I like, and Clark Gable, and then Hitchcock.
