BAFTAs 2011: The Winners

What an awards ceremony it was. The Kings Speech snapped up pretty much every award it was up for (an incredible seven awards), including a double-dose of best film (Outstanding British Film and Best Film), Best actor, supporting actor and supporting actress. Heavily pregnant Natalie Portman couldn’t make a trip across the pond to collect her award. Rosamund Pike and Dominic Cooper proved that actors really can’t cope without a script, when the autocue when wrong, they had to ad-lib and almost revealed the winner before the nominees – luckily host Jonathan Ross was on hand to stop the opening of the envelope. Alice in Wonderland was the obvious choice for make up & hair and costume awards and Inception of course was the most visually stunning, best sound and I personally think missed out on best director (although the Social Network was also a good film).
