BAFTA 2014 winners

baftas 2014

What a night at the BAFTAs. Prince William was there and gave Tinie Tempah a high five during his opening performance and Leonardo DiCaprio blew us a kiss down the camera.

As Stephen Fry pointed out, this year is very much about the true story films with Captain Philips, 12 Years a Slave and The Wolf Of Wall Street to name just a few dominating the nominations. He also corrected the grammar of the screen writers who made errors in their speeches – you’ve got to love Mr Fry!

Cate Blanchett beautifully dedicated her award and speech to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Gravity stole the show winning an incredible six awards. Surely that makes it the greatest science fiction film ever? Although I guess many will say that is based on ticket sales rather than awards…but it is still on at the IMAX for those that haven’t seen it yet so that may up the ticket sales.
