Awards Extravaganza


Normally I'm not a big fan of the Baftas for reasons I'm not sure why. I guess anything compared to the US awards seem budget.
But hats off to them this year for some fantastic and surprising nominations.
True Grit gets a fair few nods from BAFTA, which seems to have been avoided by the US counterparts.
Reluctantly, The Social Network has been nominated for Best Picture, Screenplay & Director, for which, I assume, it will win all three.
Happily, though, it did not even score a Best Original Score nom, which was distinctly average, so solace can be taken in that.
Noomi Rapace, star of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has deservedly received a nomination for Best Actress, as has a favourite of mine, Annette Bening for for The Kids Are All Right.
Disappointing that Melissa Leo didn't get a nod for Best Supporting Actress for The Fighter, as she was fantastic to watch, but an exciting line-up nonetheless.
