    That is odd that it's not broadcast live -- but it's better than here in the US, where it won't be broadcast at all till March 1.

    Still this is exciting news. The BAFTAs have matched the Oscars very closely for the past 5 years, which bodes well for the winners. But what do you mean by "public vote" for best picture? Surely not the general public? You mean the entire membership of the Academy?

    Brian, there are Two Best Picture awards if you look above. The one listed as Best Film is voted for by members of the BAFTA academy.
    The Orange Film of the year Award (the Orange telecoms network is the sponsor of BAFTA) is a category in which the nominations are listed in a number of magazines and on a number of television programmes allowing for the general public to vote for what they considered the previous years best picture.
    This award is always a bit of a farce, or at least disturbing in the pure shit that gets nominated (for instance, Mummy Returns, Jurassic Park 3, Hannibal...and so on were amongst the top 10 nominees this year).

    Congratulations to all the BAFTA winners, especially FOTR. Well done.
    However I don't think these wins will have any affect on Academy voters, since until last year, the Baftas were always awarded after the Oscars, so they were inflenced by them, and not the other way around.
    Still...it can't hurt.[​IMG]

    Im glad FOTR won Best Picture. I read that in like the past 3 years or something whatever film won BP at the BAFTAs won the Oscar. I think its true this year too.

    Wahay! Congrats to the Bafta Winners, and nice to see the Brits didn't chicken out of giving the top award to a spectacular 3-hour fantasy film and not some yawn inducing critic-friendly period drama.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Congrats to Jennifer Connelly. Been a big fan of hers since Labyrinth. She is a huge talent that is finaly starting to get the regognition she deserves. 3 stunning performances in the last 2 years - Waking the Dead, Requiem for a Dream and Beautiful Mind. I'm sure that The Hulk next year is going to make her a household name.

    Great to see Amelie getting a couple of awards but was suprised not to see Moulin Rouge picking up more.

    How much prestige do these awards hold in Great Britain? Are they anywhere in the vicinity of the Oscars or are they more in tune with, say, the People's Choice awards?[​IMG]

    Tino, there was a big article in the L.A. Times a day or two ago about the BAFTAS, and how they're becoming increasingly respected. The article said that, next to the Oscars and the Golden Globes, they have become the most prestigious film award in the world, and are positioning themselves to unseat the Golden Globes as the most important precursor to the Oscars.
    And I've just got to give you a hard time about your earlier comment. You said the BAFTAS won't influence the Oscars THIS YEAR because TWO YEARS AGO they were held after the Oscars. Huh??? [​IMG]

    Are the Oscars prestigious Tino? Some members were trashing the Oscars on the official thread for giving out Oscars to Gladiator, I'd say the BAFTAS are just as 'prestigious' as the Oscars, actually I had no problem with Gladiator winning both British and American Best Film Awards.
    ps. Strange that Harry Potter and the Magic Broomstick didn't win any BAFTAS considering how popular it was over here...[​IMG]

    With all due respect and sincere apology I have to add also that I’m glad Harry Potter got what it deserved! I’m not saying that it’s a bad movie, just that it didn’t deserve any awards.

    PS - I saw Steve's post after I wrote and posted this!

    My point is that the BAFTA's have never influenced Oscar voters in the past since they were always awarded after the Oscars. Get it?[​IMG]
    Last year was the first year that the BAFTA's were awarded first, probably because they were always in Oscars shadow and got little press. So saying that the past five years, the winners of the Bafta's and the Oscars have been the same may be misconstrued as the BAFTA award influencing Oscar voters, which until last year was not the case.
    And I'll accept that they are becoming more prestigious, but in regard to influencing Oscar voters, I don't think they are that highly regarded here yet.[​IMG]

    I don't understand when Shrek and FOTR can be up for adapted screenplay, FOTR wins best pic and best director, but gets beaten on adapted screenplay?

    Barry Norman - respected(ish) ex-TV and magazine film critic - questioned how best pic could be separated from best director. I'm with him.

    I remember a few years ago, there was an awards ceremony for radio shows. Best radio show went to Radio 1's breakfast show. Best morning show went to Virgin's breakfast show?!?! It may have been vice-versa but you get the idea...

    FWIW, I'm not a big awards show lover - I'm happy just to hear the results the following day, but I do like to see "my" movies win. As such, I would have preferred to see Moulin Rouge win best picture. It absolutely blew me away. I gave FOTR a second chance, but still failed to "get it". Fairly enjoyable fantasy romp, yes - but so was Krull...

    Well, I agreed less with the BAFTA voters than usual. Very pleased Jim Broadbent won for Moulin Rouge, however.

    Paul I wasn't actually referring to Gosford Park (I assume thats the film you meant), but period dramas in general that pop up now and than, and always seem to get unanimous praise from the critics, and a clutch of Oscar nods, its not my favorite genre, I'm a science fiction fan actually and Gosford Park is as far from SF as you can get, but I will give it a rental when it pops up on video, I promise.[​IMG]

    As I said in the Oscar thread, the most interesting thing about BAFTAs is that they spread it around.
    I can't believe Edwin thinks the Academy members will not take notice of the BAFTA results but WERE watching all those primetime FOTR ads. [​IMG]
    Gladiator being our only indicator I suppose we can at least conclude that there isn't necessarily a BAFTA backlash with the Academy.
    But certainly BAFTA is very British oriented (obviously). Denzel not even nominated as Actor as one example. Plus watching the box office shows that FOTR played even stronger in England than in the US.
    The only thing I read out of this is to expect the Oscars to be spread around just like BAFTA did.
    Definately one of the more wide open fields in some time. Globe for ABM, AFI and BAFTA for FOTR. Quite a battle raging on.
