FINAL THOUGHTS: For me, this has been an awards night where they got it pretty much spot on. The Hurt Locker won six of the eight awards that it was nominated for - including Best Film, Best Director and Original Screenplay. Avatar - which everyone predicted would sweep the night - won just two of the technical awards (Visual Effects and Production Design). Which is as it should be. It was wonderful to see Duncan Jones finally recognised for the stunning piece of work that is Moon, his debut film as a director. Christoph Waltz, for his scene-stealing performance in Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds - was a complete no-brainer for Best Supporting Actor. Leading actor Colin Firth and Leading Actress Carey Mulligan were also great choices in my opinion - A Single Man and An Education would not have been half the films they are without those two fantastic leads. And A Prophet is one of the finest foreign language films I've seen in the past year, and was another deserving winner. Also no surprse was Up for Best Animated Film and Mo'Nique for Best Supporting Actress. What was surprising, though, were the choices of Fish Tank for Outstanding British Film (my money was on An Education) and Kristen Stewart for Rising Star. But all in all, a great first time for me at the Bafta Film Awards - and I hope to get the chance to do it all again next year.
21.38: A standing ovation for Redgrave. As there should be.
