BAFTA Winners Announced

Slumdog and Benjamin Button rule roost

by | February 8, 2009 | Comments

The Orange British Academy Film Awards took place tonight in London’s Covent Garden with nominees like Angelina Jolie, Kate Winslet, and Mickey Rourke joining presenters as diverse as Sharon Stone, Goldie Hawn and, to the surprise of a packed BAFTA crowd, Mick Jagger. Not surprisingly given home field advantage, the big winner of the night was Slumdog Millionaire, while Benjamin Button was the best represented American hopeful, picking up plenty of technical gongs. But, as always with the British Academy, there were plenty of surprises amongst the results…
