The Full BAFTA Winners List

Predictably, The Artist has swept the board at the 2012 BAFTA Film Awards ceremony, nabbing a total of seven gongs (including Best Film, Best Leading Actor, and Best Director). Whilst many Brits would have been hoping to see Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy take home a few extra (particularly for lead actor Gary Oldman), there’s little doubt that Michel Hazanavicius’ silent masterpiece deserves every accolade tossed its way. Also somewhat predictably, Meryl Streep walked away with the Best Leading Actress award for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady.

One pleasing result is surely for Paddy Considine’s Tyrannosaur, which picked up the Outstanding Debut award. As one of Britain’s foremost talents, it’s great to see Considine rewarded for his revered work.

The award for Outstanding British Contribution o Cinema went to John Hurt. The Fellowship, the highest accolade which the Academy can bestow, was presented to Martin Scorsese.

The 2012 BAFTA Awards – The Winners

Well the 2012 BAFTA Awards are over (unless of course you’re watching them on a catch-up service) and the event was filled with very little surprises – The Artist repeated its success from both the Richard Attenborough Film Awards and the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards and my bet (despite my love for his competition) for the Outstanding Debut Award, Paddy Considine, did walk away with that award. Of the awards Real surprises, I’m so happy for Christopher Plumer, who walked away with the Best Supporting Actor award for Beginners, and Octavia Spencer who won the Best Supporting Female award for The Help (although like many I thought that would go to Carey Mulligan for Drive).

Here are the nominees and winners in full:

BAFTA 2012 Winners: The Artist Takes 7 Awards!

The 2012 Orange BAFTA ceremony tonight was, as expected, dominated by Michael Hazanavicius’ silent black-and-white love story The Artist.

Taking home seven awards in total, including ‘Best Film’, ‘Best Director’, ‘Best Actor for Jean Dujardin’, ‘Best Original Screenplay’, ‘Original Music’, ‘Cinematography’ and ‘Best Costume Design’, The Artist won almost every category it competed in.

Although Dujardin was a surprise over George Clooney for Best Actor, there was no shock for Best Actress with the BAFTA going to Meryl Streep for The Iron Lady, which was also honoured for the extraordinary Make-up & Hair category.

In the supporting category The Help’s Octavia Spencer won Supporting Actress and Christopher Plummer won Best Supporting Actor for Beginners, as expected.

Outstanding British Film and Adapted Screenplay went to Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy with Senna (Documentary, Editing) and Hugo (Production Design, Sound) also winning two Baftas.

Mouthful, Tumbleweed! At SXSW

Robert G. Putka‘s Mouthful and Jared Varava‘s Tumbleweed! are two short films that have been selected to screen at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival, which will run in Austin, TX on March 9-17.

Mouthful is Putka’s second short film, a verbally raunchy comedy starring Eilis Cahill and Conor Casey as a young couple whose relationship becomes strained thanks to an overly frank discussion about their sexual histories. The film was recently reviewed on Bad Lit: The Journal of Underground Film saying “one shouldn’t assume too much how the premise of a young man and woman discussing [male] anatomy will play out.”

Putka has also mounted an IndieGoGo campaign to help fund his filmmaking team’s trip to SXSW and for marketing material, such as posters, T-shirts, press kits and such. If you want to help out, please visit the Mouthful IndieGoGo page.

Tumbleweed! is the latest collaboration between

BAFTA Nominations Highlight ‘The Artist,’ ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,’ and ‘Drive’
Early this morning the BAFTA nominations were announced, after a couple rounds of 'longlist' reveals. One of the big Oscar frontrunners, The Artist, walked away with 12 nominations, including Best Film, Director, Original Screenplay, Leading Actor and Leading Actress. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy gets a moment in the sun with 11 nominations -- not really any surprise that the film would get lots of BAFTA attention -- and Hugo took 9 nods, though mostly for smaller categories. Drive, which has mostly been ignored in the Us awards rounds so far, got a nod for Best Film, and Attack the Block and Submarine were both nominated for Outstanding Debut By a British Writer, Director or Producer. Check out the full nomination list below. The Orange British Academy Film Awards take place on Sunday 12 February at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London.
