The BAFTAs, or the British Academy Awards, were held last night, and in a sign of what I believe is to come for the Oscars this year, The Artist was the big winner, as well as Jean Dujardin, who won for best actor. He had a very busy weekend, flying from Paris to New York for a live taping of “Saturday Night Live,” before heading back to England to accept his awards. Here’s his very sweet acceptance speech.

Meanwhile, Meryl undeservedly took home best actress, but it was kind of worth it after Colin Firth rescued her shoe all Prince Charming-like.
