BAFTA winners.

BAFTA.jpgIn case you didn’t know, because it wasn’t hailed as a big event anywhere much but the UK this year, but the BAFTA’s were held over the weekend. That’s the British Academy of Film and Television Awards.

It was an excellent show, which I watched in a hotel room recovering from eating far too much and following it with York brewed ale. Nice. Stephen Fry is the funniest man and presented extremely well, although his sharp humour was often lost on those not from the UK.
