Award Show Roundup: BAFTAs 2015

Yep I once again chose to watch a delayed broadcast of the British Academy Awards over the Grammy’s, because I guessed (correctly) that the only part of those I would care about would be all over social media (you should watch this though…it’s pretty amazing.)

The BAFTAs didn’t have a ton of surprises, but there was a lot of British charm. My highlights were:

Stephen Fry being as adorably British and jolly as he has been hosting for the past decade or so:

Stephen Hawking was there to see Eddie win, and he got in a pretty good one-liner too:

Boyhood continued its march to Oscar glory, and Patricia was gracious and lovely as always:

And because Richard Linklater (and the rest of the American directors) were at the DGAs so Ellar Coltrane got to give this really beautiful speech:

Also Wes Anderson won for Original Screenplay and sent Ralph Feinnes up with this great speech:

My favorite face, Jack O’Connell, won the Rising Star award. And his speech was ridiculous and now I love him more than ever:

There were a lot of unremarkable dresses, but a few stood out:
