BAFTA Winners.

I've always enjoyed the BAFTA awards (British version of the Oscars) because their generally full of surprises, and they nominate people that the academy sometimes misses. (ie James McAvoy for Last King of Scotland, Paul Dano for There Will Be Blood) This year's telecast was no different. Front runners Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep took a backseat to Colin Firth and Carey Mulligan in the lead actor/actress categories. And The Hurt Locker surprisingly nearly swept all the categories! Here is a list of the winners:
