I know I gave it 5 stars, and it is certainly a charming film, but The King’s Speech won far too much in categories where other films were more deserving. Colin Firth, yes, Best British Film, yes, but best overall picture? It really is just because its British. But then again that’s BAFTA for you. I’m sure the Oscars will be a different.

It was a mixed evening. Weird dance to start. Cocks up (here’s looking at you Rosamund), and now I have general concern for Christopher Lee starring in The Hobbit. But I’m now more than warmed up for the Oscars now within the next couple of weeks I believe. I hope you’ve enjoyed my coverage, here is a list of all the winners for you. Gaudion out.
