Well, here we are LIVE at the 2010 Orange BAFTA Awards and I can’t describe what the atmosphere is like. We’re currently waiting for the awards themselves to start and while you’re getting your beverage of choice, check out the photos that I took from the red carpet which I’ll get posted here as fast as I can.
I’ve placed all the nominees below and we’ll be updating them as each winner is announced live from the awards. Each time a winner is announced, I’ll change the winner to bold and red so that you can spot them easily.
Remember, this is a completely interactive evening so please comment on what you think of the results, check out our live tweets here and discuss away as much as you can. Remember to hash-tag your tweets with #BAFTA and then they’ll be easy to spot for everyone else in the land of twitter.
So, here we go…. “hold onto your butts!”
Live Blog (updated as the awards are announced – for a list of winners and nominees please scroll down)
6.40 – The Red carpet is dwindling, but there were a number of notable crowd pleasers tonight. Carey Mulligan and Vera Farmiga took the paparazzi’s attention, and Prince William turned up and worked the crowd which was a nice touch. Then he was slightly upstaged by Robert Pattinson…
We’ll have pictures up as soon as we can – it’s been a crazy night so far – and the awards haven’t even started yet! Stay tuned for more…
7.00 – Following Lord Attenborough has found his replacement as President of BAFTA – the crowd pleaser Prince William. Nice speech, short.
7.10 – Jonathan Ross has taken the stage and is already making friends, singling out Dustin Hoffman, Kate Winslet and…Robert Pattinson, who looked embarrassed.
7.15 – Colin Firth on stage for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Producer or Director… Duncan Jones wins for MOON! That’s made my day. Everyone should see this film!
7.20 – James Corden’s speech when presenting Short Film makes me sad that this isn’t going out live… The Winner for Best Short Film is…I Do Air.
7.25 – Mother of Many is the Best Short Animation, great speech, the winners are so happy and humble so far.
7.30 – Michael Giacchino wins for Up’s Music – this has a great score, it really elevated the movie (in a non punny way).
7.31 – Best Sound design is next up – sci-fi features heavily, but the winner is The Hurt Locker! Well deserved, and might start a trend…
7.35 – Editing is up next, some shining examples this year – Hurt Locker a favourite…and it WINS!
7.37 – The legend that is Terry Gilliam is on stage to present the Michael Balcon award for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema, the award goes to Joe Dunton, a pioneer in movie technology – he’s worked with some of the best directors around, Lynch, Kubrick and Spielberg to name a few. His contribution cannot be understated. There’s a great montage, so make sure you’re watching when it goes out on TV. Gilliam is a genial and generous presenter.
7.44 Joe Dunton is a gracious recipient and taking the 3D glasses out and wearing them was a classy move. He’s still looking to the future.
7.46 – Best Cinematography is next up. One of the few categories The Road is nominated and with good reason – it looked incredible… but the result is The Hurt Locker again! This is turning into a very good night for Ms. Bigelow – will the big prizes follow the technical awards?
7.50 – Nick Frost and Mackenzie Crook are here to present special effects – any guesses? My pick would be District 9 – but will the Avatar juggernaut win out?
7.51 – Of course it will. Worthy winner. Avatar takes it.
7.53 – Avatar bods seem very happy to get their award, and nearly forget to thanks their families but rushed back on – good for them!
7.54 – The Hurt Locker is doing well so far, and the speeches are short, and a big award is up next.
7.57 – Best Supporting Actor is up – Christian McKay’s Orson Welles was great, Stanley Tucci did fine but Christoph Waltz is sure to walk away with it…
7.59 – And he is the winner. Richly deserved – brilliant performance. Waltz is thanking everyone, especially QT. Class Act.
8.02 – Costume design now – nice to see A Single Man there, and the winner is….The Young Victoria – that’s a great pick – it was very impressive work, for a film undeservedly overlooked.
8.04 – They are speeding through the awards tonight – no great shocks so far, but a great atmosphere. Still very happy about Moon’s win. Make up and Supporting Actress coming up next. None of the other presenters have reached James Corden’s hilarious heights so far…
8.07 – Make- up is next, fingers crossed for Gilliam and Dr Parnassus, but feel it will be overlooked.
8.09 – It was. The Young Victoria wins again!
8.10 – Best Supporting Actress award is next. Cue the bra jokes…
8.11 – Nowhere Boy has a big presence here – Anne Marie Duff is my pick. Let’s see.
8.12 – It’s Mo’nique’s night! I’ve not seen it so can’t comment but it’s not a huge surprise. Lee Daniels takes the stage to accept on her behalf.
8.14 – So, now it’s British film – will it be Moon again, or Nowhere Boy, or will Fish Tank crack it? Such a great list of nominees.
8.16 – Fish Tank wins it! That’s a great pick – great to see this film getting something – I felt it was overlooked a little in the other categories.
8.18 – Great acceptance speech and a lovely moment between Jonathan Ross and Mickey Rourke – hope they keep that one in the broadcast…
8.21 – Original Screenplay is up next – this could go any way…
8.24 – Slight shocker as The Hurt Locker wins it. Thought Tarantino would win this one.
8.26 Production design is up next – will Gilliam’s Imaginarium walk away with it, or will it be an Avatar win?
8.27 – It’s an Avatar win, not a massive shocker as it was a real achievement, and all in a computer…
8.31 – This one will be good – the Orange Rising star award, last year’s winner Noel Clarke takes the stage.
8.33 – Kristen Stewart wins it – slight shocker there, but not when you take into account the fact that this is the only award voted by the Public…
8.37 – Adapted Screenplay is next – Come on In The Loop!
8.39 – Ok, Up in The Air gets it, Good script, great film. Should have been Armando’s boys.
8.44 – Animated film – Peter Capaldi is on stage about to hand it over – let’s hope it’s Coraline on the receiving end…
8.47 – Up wins it – Pete Docter is up on stage and being very nice about it.
8.48 – Film not in the English Language is up next and Carey Mulligan is doing the talk – great list of nominees – for my money Let The Right One In is a great choice – let’s see if A Prophet or The White Ribbon gets it…
8.52 – It’s A Prophet – such a strong category this year.
8.54 – It’s one of the biggest awards next… Best Director. Will it be Bigelow’s night?
8.56 – It really is between Bigelow and Cameron – or will it be a shock? Clive Owen redefines dapper as he handles the gold face…
9.00 – It’s Kathryn Bigelow! If I’m right she’s the first woman to win the award, and it is so well deserved! Incredible work – is this a sign for the Oscars?
9.03 – Best Actor time. Fingers crossed for Colin Firth…
9.05 – Seeing the montage is amazing – such great work done this year and Colin Firth wins it! That and Duncan Jones makes my night. Outstanding!
9.08 – Mickey Rourke is on stage to present Best Actress – dressed as Akuma from Street Fighter.
9.11 – Carey Mulligan wins it! Amazing night for the British and well deserved…
9.13 – Best Film up next… Dustin Hoffman is a class act, but is it me or did every one of the jokes fall flat tonight?
9.16 – Best Film is The Hurt Locker! No-one here can believe it but its a great, GREAT choice. Wonderful. James Cameron is smiling and clapping…
9.23 – It’s been a great night for Kathryn Bigelow and The Hurt Locker, and it was amazing to see Colin Firth and Carey Mulligan taking the Best Acting awards – my favourite moment was Duncan Jones though, whose speech was as emotional as it was deserved. He is my new hero. Hope you all enjoyed it – now you can let us know what you think…
