bafta-logoSo the BAFTAS (British Academy Awards) aired tonight and although i was unable to watch them live, i am very pleased with the results.  The only award i do not agree with was for Sound, which they gave to Slumdog Millionaire but should have been given to Wall*E.  My favorite surprise was that Man on Wire won for Outstanding British Film…a nice surprise!
