Bafta Predictions

So I'm settling in for a night with the Baftas and thought I'd get some predictions down.  
I'm going to write a proper news round-up post while I'm watching.  I'm really behind with the films that are nominated this year.  That's what comes from not working in a cinema any more.  I'm going to try to catch-up before the Oscar's though.  

I love Twitter when events like this happen.  I don't have a good enough phone for me to use it all the time but it makes things like this really exciting.  News from the red carpet, as it happens, from normal people in the crowd is great.  As well as pictures of the dresses before the airbrushers get their hands on them!

Anyway here are my picks.

Best Film
An Education
The Hurt Locker
Up in the Air
Outstanding British Film
An Education
Fish Tank

In the Loop
Nowhere Boy

Hey! I was just looking through some of your old posts and I had to check this out! I hope you put some money on your predictions, seems you were spot-on with your acting guesses. And I'm so glad to see some love for 'Let The Right One In'. That's one of my favorite movies of ALL time.
