The Artist wins big at the BAFTA Film Awards

02.13.2012

After sweeping both audiences and critics off their feet, it seems THE ARTIST decided to sweep the BAFTA Film Awards too because why not.  The ode to silent cinema brought home seven awards last night in London, including Best Picture, Screenplay, and Director, while the rest of the awards spread themselves pretty evenly across the board.  And while it didn't win anything, at least the BAFTA people were willing to acknowledge that DRIVE was something special by nominating it.  So there's some comfort, I suppose.  I should also add that I'm very glad for John Hurt's award - if I've ever seen an outstanding British contribution to cinema, it would most definitely be him.  But that's enough from me - check it all out below!

Extra Tidbit: The United States was once a colony of Britain. I actually know of a British person who wasn't aware of this - they thought the US had just "always been there."
