bafta_2012As the curtain falls on the 69th BAFTA Awards, the results were pretty much as expected. The Revenant cleaned up with all the major wards, Best Actor for DiCaprio, Best Director and Best Film. At the same time, Kate Winslet took home the award for her role in Danny Boyle’s, Steve Jobs, Star Wars won Best VFX, which even though I love to see Star Wars winning awards, I feel that Ex_Machina was superior in this field at least and Mad Max: Fury Road won Best Costume, which I also feel should have gone to Cinderella for so expertly and faithfully reinterpreting the original animated designs for this live action blockbuster.

revenant_ver2_xlgAs for the presenters, Rebel Wilson was fabulous as she made some outrageously funny and well received jokes commenting on the race issue with the Oscars and Carrie Fisher is do doing the rounds, though it is clear that if she does actually know where she is, she cannot manage to speak publicly on her own, her past obviously leaving it’s mark.

And why, oh why was Matt Damon nominated for The Martian? Do not get me wrong, he was good enough but nothing special and surly had no chance of winning.
