The King's Speech wins big at the BAFTAs and no one is surprised; David Fincher picks up Best Director

02.14.2011

To the shock of no one that's been following the awards season happenings these past couple of months, Tom Hooper's THE KING'S SPEECH won big at the BAFTAs (British Academy of Film and Television Arts, the equivalent of the Oscars in the States). The film went home with seven awards total, including Best Film and Outstanding British Film, as well as acting wins for Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, and Geoffrey Rush.

David Fincher upset Tom Hooper, however, with a win for THE SOCIAL NETWORK. And INCEPTION finally got some love (albeit technical) with wins for Production Design, Sound, and Special Visual Effects (Tom Hardy also took home an Orange Wednesdays Rising award, which is nice). On a side note: I'm about ready to punch motherf*ckers for INCEPTION not getting any recognition in the Editing department (either here or with the Oscars), but what can you do?

The winners are listed below. Check out the full breakdown RIGHT HERE.
