BAFTA Winners

Well, an interesting set of winners to say the least. Here are a couple of things we found out:
  • David Fincher is not out of this race, and if BAFTA wouldn't reward their own, then I think he still is the frontrunner for BD. That being said, The King's Speech seems to be locked and loaded for the big win.
  • There will most likely not be a King's Speech sweep. Many are predicting it to go straight down the board, but I think the awards will be more dispersed this year. Inception and Alice in Wonderland stand to take some technical awards, and Editing and Cinematography could split as well with True Grit and The Social Network.
  • Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush do well with the Brits. That combined with popularity of the film, means that if there is any chance of an upset in the Supporting categories it will come from this duo (I will also throw Hailee Steinfeld in as well, as she could easily take the prize).
  • Natalie and Colin seem unstoppable at this point, but watch out for Annette.
