Slumdog Millionaire wins big at BAFTA awards 2009

As I continue my major coverage of February awards shows, I just can’t miss the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) that were held in London last night.

Big A-list names were among the nominees. Check it out, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Kate Winslet, Penelope Cruz, and many others were announced in 24 categories.

Kate Winslet was honored Best Actress at BAFTA awards 2009

And just like at most of the awards shows this year, Angelina Jolie didn’t take any award, neither her partner Brad Pitt, though both were nominated in the Best Actor/ Actress categories. Instead, Kate Winslet was honored with the award for The Reader, and Mickey Rourke for The Wrestler.

Like everyone expected, Slumdog Millionaire was named the Best Film, Danny Boyle was honored best director, and Heath Ledger was named Best Supporting Actor for The Dark Knight. Brad Pitt’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button took some of the “technical” awards as best production design, visual effects, and make up and hair.

Mickey Rourke was named Best Actor at British Academuy of Film and Television awards 2009

Generally, Slumdog Millionaire was the biggest winner of the night, taking 7 awards.

BAFTA is considered British version of the Oscar, so can the Oscar ceremony follow the same scenario? We’ll see it on Feb. 22nd.
