The British Academy's "night of nights" saw The Artist claim majority of the awards along with Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy also claiming a few nods. My predictions were correct for the Best Picture Award, rightly going to The Artist.
Unfortunately, the evening saw Michelle Williams miss out in her Best Actress Category with Meryl Streep taking out the BAFTA for her performance as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady. That is saying a lot, that the British recognise and applaud an American's portrayal of their once illustrious leader.
The evening saw both George Clooney and Brad Pitt miss out in their categories, with Jean Dujardin taking home the BAFTA for his role in The Artist.
Congratulations to Christopher Plummer and Octavia Spencer both winning their Best Supporting Actor Categories, which means that an Oscar is pretty much a sure thing. These two have been quite consistant in their Awards Season.
The final Harry Potter film only won one award and that was for Best Achievement for Special Visual Effects. Whilst at the time of its release critics were touting this film would take out majority of the major awards, it has not done so!
Now we will all be gearing up for the big guns later this month!!!
