    Inception would have been an absolutely massive surprise if it had won Best Film.

    It was a magnificent film but it had no real chance at the award.

    I found it really amusing as well. Especially when he walked onto the stage; I had involuntarily spasms running through my body.

    Well most have had good reasons really.

    One was heavily pregnant.

    Ones on the stage in new york.
    some of them wanted to preserve their lives probably and not get bored to death at the Baftas... was a shame, would've been nice to see David Fincher, Natalie Portman and others

    Yeah, I wanted to see Fincher pick up the award.

    And yeah, Christopher Lee is great. He's my favourite Dracula. Gary Oldman is second.

    Actually, the one thing I did get from tonight was how much I need to see True Grit. I perked up every time they showed a clip. Looks excellent.

    Well Portman is massively pregnant at the moment.

    If that isn't a valid reason i don't know what is.

    The BAFTAs missed a real chance tonight to stake a claim at being the definitive awards ceremony.

    Hailee Steinfeld gives an amazing performance to say she's only 14.

    Yup, and it was woefully boring as well. To be honest, I'll probably find the Oscars extremely boring too.

    The only thing i still don't like about the BAFTAs is Jonathan Ross.

    This is meant to be when we show off british talent and we shove him in front of the camera?

    The only downside to the Oscars is the length of the ceremony. :yes:

    Didn't watch it, but looking at the results is very disappointing. The Academy is obviously the sort of audience meant to lap up The King's Speech, the British Academy I always want to see as slightly more innovative and daring. If they'd given some surprising yet deserved awards like screenplay to Nolan, editing to Jon Harris or best actor to James Franco it would really have created a stir and actually encouraged a lot more people to be interested in future years. As it is they just look like a shadow of the Oscars and heavily biased towards brits. Given best supporting to Geoffrey Rush was a poor decision.

    All that said, I am pleased to see Girl With the Dragon Tattoo won best foreign film. And Chris Morris for outstanding debut, although I would have preferred Gareth Edwards.

    Pretty much what I thought. The bias is so obvious that it's just tiresome now.

    I think they tried to be slightly innovative and hoped to bring younger viewers with the breakdancing at the beginning of the show but that was ****. :pierre:

    As an addendum; I don't give two tosses about it being Colin Firth's time or anything like that, any awards ceremony that doesn't honour James Franco is full of ****.
