BAFTA 2011 – WINNERS

CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT
The King’s Speech was crowned not only Best British Film but Best Film overall at this year’s BAFTA ceremonies, sweeping with it awards for both Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush, as well as a supporting coronet for Helena Bonham Carter, who plays the King’s wife. It also won for screenplay and music.


For all the glitz piled on The King’s Speech (an Aust/UK co-production, by the way) it’s heartening to see BAFTA recognition for Chris Morris (British Debut award) for his unusual comedy, Four Lions. Nor was The Social Network ignored, winning David Fincher the Best Director Award and the Best Adapted Screenplay gong for Aaron Sorkin.

Roger Deakins’ work on True Grit won the cinematography award, while Toy Story 3 was named Best Animation.
