With the BAFTA nominees announced all eyes will turn to London’s Royal Opera House on 13th February for the celebrated night of award winning film. While many fans will be heading down to see if they can catch a glimpse of their favourite actor or director, I’m still trying to work out which of these films I’d like to see.
The regal Kings Speech has had huge coverage on the news and is tipped to win several awards, with Colin Firth already claiming the best actor at the Golden Globes in Beverly Hills. Though for something a bit more exciting I might try the New York thriller Black Swan set within the ballet community or for edge of the seat entertainment the true story of a rock climber trapped, in Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours. So far only a few of these films are actually out at the cinema so it’s hard to judge which will be good. I’m just as likely to visit the National Media Museum in Bradford or the London Film Museum as to loitering by the red carpet.
Hot on the tail of the BAFTAs comes the highly prestigious Oscar’s. Broadcast live from Hollywood on the 27th February these awards offer the highest praise within the film industry, often causing controversy with underdogs stealing the show.
Which film do you think will pick up the most awards, are you looking forward to them when they hit the cinemas or will you be avoiding all the hype. Does it even matter to you if a film has won an award?
