The Hurt Locker Wins Big at BAFTA's

I'm thinking that the sound awards will be split, and that Tarantino will miss out on original screenplay at the Oscars. Great wins for Firth and Mulligan, maybe upset material? Mo and Christoph solidy their already gigantic leads. Looks as if the Oscars are going to be BORING this year. I'm also working on an article about the role of critics in the last two awards seasons. Also a little note, The Young Victoria could get a Makeup Oscar with this win tonight.
