I genuinely did not know they were on tonight until earlier today.

I live in a bubble, it's a bit cramped and smelly but I can still get wifi in here to download books on my Kindle, so at least I'm not bored.....

I remember when the Baftas used to be varied and interesting. Do they have the same voter base as the Academy now?

We're even getting it live here in NZ. So far, fairly boringly predictable.

If it's still on then it's not live - it finished about 9 or so our time.

The Baftas used to be after the Oscars, nobody cared. The ridiculous nature of the release dates also meant that films often weren't eligible at the Baftas until the year after they appeared at the Oscars. The move to before the Oscars has meant it's increasingly seen as an important precursor award, rather than the one that gave best actor of the year trophies to Jamie Bell and Hugh Grant. It also means that the push for the films likely to score at the Oscars is more intense.

The best possible result of this awards season is the hope it leads to the Academy looking silly and overhauling their voting process.

But they got the director omissions right IMO. The 'up yours' votes elsewhere don't change that for me.

Personal opinion doesn't really enter into it though. The simple fact is that the film and the man sweeping all the precursors can't possibly win best director at the Oscars. That's a huge embarrassment and makes the Academy look very much out of step. So right now there's either the situation where Argo doesn't win best picture, and it's pretty much the biggest upset loss ever at the Oscars, or it does win best picture and they look ridiculous with Affleck not being able to take director. It's not even the same as when Driving Miss Daisy won without a director nom, because it wasn't sweeping everything beforehand, and places like the DGA also didn't nominate it.

What I find quite interesting is that even if all these Guilds rate it (including that odd acting ensemble award) - how did it manage to miss the director nom.

I kind of look at it the other way - difference can be healthy. Of course, that might be emphasised for me here because I'm still baffled Argo is seen as award-worthy, but it's exactly the thing I'm sorry to see go from Bafta.

In fairness, they have looked silly for many, many years now.

Because of the odd nominations system.

To be fair, you've disliked most of the best films of the last year, from Django to Silver Linings to Paperman. Your taste kinda sucks.

On another note, wonderful to see Emanuelle Riva win Best Actress for her heartbreaking performance in Amour.
As far as Argo is concerned, I thought it and its director were worthy winners, and it was such a pleasure to see that the academy didn't for once go with the boringly predictable choice. That being said, however, I think I'd probably have been just as happy to see Life Of Pi win.
Also, delighted to see Stephen Fry back fronting the show rather than that horrendous Ross creature.

It was just after Emmanuelle Riva won best actress for Amour. Presumably he pulled it because Jennifer Lawrence didn't win.

No offence intended Hood_Man, but that's the single most shallow, unnecessary and pointless comment I've seen on these boards. Who gives a flying monkey fuck what Stephen Fry's weight is?!

Who cares? How about someone who suffers from depression and knows how difficult it is to struggle with weight problems, and was concerned for Stephen Fry's health when he saw how big he was last year?

That also wasn't the most pointless post you've read on here, don't even try to justify that. The hyperbole isn't fooling anyone.

But thank you for saying no offense though, otherwise I might very well have taken offence at someone swearing at me and calling me shallow, and making nasty ignorant judgements about my character. I might even have mistaken you for another hit and run internet white knight.

But sure, no offence taken.

I wonder if anyone else feels ambivalent about the award dished out?

I mean, I really enjoyed Argo and Affleck made a great leading man - dude, why cut your hair and have it slicked up? You looked better in the film! Or is that a stupid shallow comment.

But my point is, a quick look up on wiki and you find the events of the film didn't pan out as showed in the climax - there was no suspicion at the airport, let a lone a chase along the runway!

Ditto Silver Linings, I enjoyed it a lot and good to see De Niro not phoning it in. But really, bipolar can be 'cured' with the love of a good woman? If so, that's Stephen Fry stuffed then...

Lincoln? Said to be hard work. I've not seen it, and am unlikely to now I've eventually nailed it: Daniel Day Lewis is simply channelling that bearded old codger and founder of the bank in Mary Poppins, the one it turns out is played by Dick van Dyke and ends up carking it when a joke causes him to lift out of his chair and up to the ceiling.

Django Unchained I loved - except the 'coda' which is pure fantasy and hokum, I did go off it at that point. Plus there's that story about QT on imdb, about how he cast an actor and made him think he had the role locked down, then pulled him out - a 'prank' based on the fact that years ago the actor turned down the role of Marcellus Wallace. QT: such a nice guy, I don't think.

Skyfall is divisive, the plot holes are such you could drive the Liparus supertanker through them. Plus Bond fails in most of his mission. Still, it's patriotic isn't it!

Still, watching it made me want to see a few I haven't: Dark Zero Thirty and Les Mis, plus Searching for Sugar Man and Beasts of the Southern Wild. But with stuff like Armour, it's been quite a depressing or at least sobering year in a way.
