It’s the BAFTAs tonight. I’m very excited. I love the awards season, and this British awards events is guaranteed to get me geared up for the film event of the year in two weeks time, the Academy Awards.
And speaking of awards, and the Oscars in particular, here’s a question:
It’s your fantasy – you’ve been nominated for an Oscar for your great acting/screenwriting/directing/animation/songwriting/make-up (fill in your ideal film industry job here) skills. You’ve already walked the red carpet and you’re now sitting nervously, trussed up in your designer gear, awaiting the announcement of your category.
Now, I’ll let you into a secret, you’re going to win! So, it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be called up on stage to give your acceptance speech. Now, here’s the bit of your fantasy I’d love to hear about:
If you could be presented your trophy by any Oscar-winner from the event’s 80 year history, who would it be and why?
If you’re having trouble thinking about that, then click here for a complete list of the winning movies. Alternatively you could check out Sky Movies Drama/HD which will be showing 90 Oscar-winning movies this month.
The big Academy Awards event itself is broadcasting live on Sky Movies Premiere/HD on 22nd February, but in the meantime, you can catch the BAFTA awards ceremony on BBC2 at 8pm tonight, followed by the climax of the gala on BBC1 at 9pm.
