Brits and The Hurt Locker win BAFTA Gold






Big congratulations are in order to all of tonight's BAFTA winners, manfully striving through Jonathan Ross' awful jokes and Vanessa Redgrave's interminable fellowship speech. Special big congrats from me go to Colin Firth, finally getting the material he deserves (work with Tom Ford again, Colin! Be sure the fridge man continues to pop around!) and Up, Pixar's latest masterpiece. The main talking point of course will be The Hurt Locker, scooping six gongs from under the nose of Avatar, including Director for Kathryn Bigelow. Is this indicative of the Brits' willingness to let more challenging material into the movie mainstream? The full list of winners is below
