BAFTA Winners!

American films dominated the BAFTA awards this year, and I’m happy to see that Marion Cotillard is winning more and more awards. She’s the most deserving nominee in any category this year who might not win the big award on the 24th. I hope the Academy realizes this too.

Also, good job England… “The Lives of Others”… really? Wasn’t that up for a bunch of awards last year? It’s a undeniably great film, but let’s give “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” the chance it deserves.
