British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards Announced

The BAFTA awards were announced last night and I was delighted to see some of my favorite films honored including:

Slumdog Millionaire swept the awards – For Best Film, its director, Danny Boyle for Best Director, Simon Beaufoy was honored for Best Adapted Screenplay (Slumdog is based on a novel), A.R. Rahman for Best Music, Anthony Dod Mantle for Cinematography, Chris Dickens for Editing, Glen Freemantle, Resul Pookutty, Richard Pryke Tom Sayers, Ian Tapp for Sound. This is not a kids’ film but it is absolutely awesome. Go see it.

Wall-E took Best Animated Film – How appropriate.

Wallace and Gromit: A Matter of Loaf and Death won for Short Animation. Kudos!
