Expecto Patronum! After a streak of eight vfx nominations in a row, the Harry Potter visual effects team finally turn that nomination in to a win on the final film of the series. Justice is done. Than you, Academy members!
Otherwise, it was a phenomenal night for The Artist – and deservedly so. OK, maybe a teensy bit too much so – but what a great film! Tinker Tailor did well too and although i agree that the film was stylish and well crafted, it still left me a bit cold. Good on them anyways.
My disappointments for the night was that no bling was flung at Midnight in Paris, my Week With Marylin or We Need To Talk About Kevin. Tyrannosaur, of course, got the outstanding debut award, but should have been nominated for more.
But… mustn’t grumble! All in all a great night for BAFTA and film in general. Stephen Fry was in his element as host and the show was filled with genuinely entertaining, moving and hilarious moments!
Bring on the Oscars!
