Screen Rant Goes To The 2010 BAFTAS

Published 5 years ago by , Updated February 15th, 2014 at 4:28 pm,

When the awards ended, an extra pair of seats were brought out beside the panel. The foursome was joined by Stuart Hazeldine, director and producer of the low-budget British film Exam. The pair’s chat was just about to delve into greater detail about the film’s production and origin when they were ushered off stage to make room for award winners Carey Mulligan and Colin Firth.

Firth offered some great insights into the British film industry (giving a lot of support for the  romantic comedy genre) and seeming very glad that he is now entering a new (serious?) phase in his career. Mulligan appeared a bit shell-shocked by the night’s proceedings, and the chat was mainly dominated by the admittedly charismatic Firth. The duo were again ushered off to make way for Best Supporting Actor winner Christoph Waltz and Moon director Duncan Jones. Waltz was, like Firth, charismatic and self-deprecating about his win (and its career implications) and he was very complimentary of Quentin Tarantino and his directing style.

Jones on the other hand was very quiet, but happy that his little $5 million dollar film was rewarded during the night. He also said that his main job on set was trying to “freak out” star Sam Rockwell. The director said how he tried to copy the actor’s beard and haircut to add a creepy aspect to his time on set in order for Rockwell to give the right type of performance.

The night ended with a raffle for those attending – gifts ranging from champagne and a nominee goodie bag to Avatar place mats (!?), Sadly this Screen Rant writer went away empty-handed – although guests did get a minor goodie bag of their own, which was sadly worth a lot less than the thousands of pounds that the nominee gift bags were worth.

The night was fun and highly entertaining and well worth my time and effort to get there (which included standing on an overcrowded train for three hours!) I hope that I was able to give you a flavor of what it was like being there, and that I was able to offer you a sense of the buzz and electricity that permeated the evening.

Hopefully next year I’ll be able to bring you more news from the 2011 BAFTAS.

  1. Kristen Stewart? Rising star? Psssssshhh…. Gross

    At least Michael Giacchino won for the score from “Up”, and maybe this will also mean “The Hurt Locker” has a good chance to kill “Avatar” at the Oscars. I really want James Cameron to lose against his ex-wife. That would make my day.

  2. In defense of Kristen Stewart I'd like to say that it wasn't just the Twilight fans that thought she deserved the BAFTA award but she was nominated by peers whom thought she was good enough to be given the opportunity to win in the category of rising star. Let's not forget that it is the ” rising star ” award and not the lifetime achievement award. She has worked with some of the best in the business. Jody Foster, De Niro, Sean Penn etc. So give her a break and start seeing her for what she is…….A talented “RISING Star”.

  3. Anyone can work with talented people, that doesn't make them talented. Dakota Fanning worked with De Niro too. Yippie! Good for them. They're not De Niro.

  4. I'm glad Michael Giaccino won for the Up score, I had that theme playing in my head all day today and it made it a most pleasant day indeed.

    And yes, very very pleased with Christoph Waltz, I really loved him in Basterds.

  5. WOOOHOOO! So thrilled that The Hurt Locker won for Best Film. Hopefully, this will increase the likliehood that it will win Best Picture at the Oscars instead of the “A” movie.

    @joshi38 …

    I'm also glad Michael Giacchino won for his score of Up. Why this amazing and heart-touching score has not yet been released as a soundtrack CD amazes me.

  6. That does suck, I'd buy that score in an instant.

  7. Very impressed with the reporting on this one. Glad to see the Hurt Locker do so well instead of 'Dances with Wolves' er…. I mean 'Avatar'

  8. Glad you liked it – it was a fun a evening. Thanks for the kind words.
