Results of the BAFTA Awards 2012

The Orange British Academy Film Awards 2012 were held last night at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London. The Artist stole the show and took home seven awards, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy was awarded Outstanding British Film and Best Adapted Screenplay. Best Actress went to Meryl Streep for her performance in The Iron Lady. Streep lost a shoe on the way onstage, prompting Colin Firth to dash over and retrieve it for her. In her winners’ press conference held after the ceremony Streep was asked whether she had gotten over her Cinderella moment. She replied: “I did, but I was very upset, because I neglected to thank the person that I wanted to thank the very most.”

Streep then went on to thank her make-up man and hairdresser who she has worked with for the past 35 years, J Roy Helland, plus the prosthetics team on The Iron Lady who made it possible for her to portray Margaret Thatcher over four decades.

The BAFTA Fellowship was awarded to Martin Scorsese by Max Von Sydow while the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema award was presented to John Hurt by Billy Bob Thornton.

    1. Stephen Fry was, as I expected, a fantastic host. From what I’ve heard about it I’m not surprised The Artist won so many. I wonder if my local cinema is now kicking themselves over their decision not to show it..!

  1. I liked The Artist but am disappointed that it scooped a lot of the big ones last night. I think that’s its focus on old-fashioned cinema is triggering nostalgia overload and pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes – particularly the critics!

    1. You raise an interesting point! Unfortunately, I still haven’t seen it as it wasn’t shown at my local cinema and I didn’t fancy driving to my next cinema (1 hour away!) to watch it.

      I like that Jean Dujardin won Best Actor because he would have had to have been a lot more expressive not being able to talk. That’s the mark of a great actor, being able to tell a story and make the audience enjoy themselves without talking!

      1. He did a lot of acting, and he was good, but it was all a bit rubber-facey, glean, and hammy IMHO. Again, I’d put it down to the overall film novelty sweeping people away – but will let you decide for yourself!

        I’d have probably put Descendants up for Best Actor and Supporting Actress.

      2. Tell me about it! I was not a happy bunny… I’ll have to let you know what I think of it when I finally get to see it.

        I thought The Descendants was brilliant. I’m planning on posting review on it later this week.

  2. Yay for The Artist! One day I’ll be able to spell AND pronounce Michel Hazanavicius’ name properly, ahah.

    I’m glad HUGO got the award for Production Design, the movie does look visually stunning!

    Thanks for the rundown, Claire. I was gonna do it but opted to do a tribute for Whitney instead.
