The 2010 BAFTA Award Winners

Here is the complete list of the 2010 BAFTA Award Winners, otherwise known as the British Oscars. The winners are notable, really, only for the lack of a British presence in the best picture category. My guess is that the winners may also ultimately demonstrate that the British prefer substance (The Hurt Locker) over style (Avatar) — I think the Oscars may go the other way.

Sadly, it seems, Up in the Air — which was once considered a lock for Best Picture — peaked a little too early, while The Hurt Locker continues its momentum toward next month’s Oscars. I still liked Up in in the Air a hair better, though I might give the director nod to Bigelow.

The only real surprise below is that Kristen Stewart beat out Carey Mulligan for rising star, but then it should be noted that the rising star award is voted on by the public, and the public generally has its head up its sparkly ass.
