BAFTA’s: Daniel Day Lewis Still Winning Awards For Playing The Oil Guy
Here’s a bunch of celebs at the Bafta’s, which are British awards for excellence in film. Daniel Day Lewis followed up his Screen Actor’s Guild and Golden Globe wins with Best Actor for “There Will Be Blood”. French actress Marion Cotillard (pictured above with Daniel and Anthony Hopkins) won for her portrayal of French singer Edith Piaf in “La Vie En Rose”. “Atonement” won for Best Picture and Production Design, and it was also nominated (but lost) in twelve other categories. Asked about the slight shut-out, co-producer Eric Fellner said: “When you are nominated 14 times and see 12 losses it’s a great relief. Being nominated is an extraordinary thing. I’m incredibly happy to have 14 nominations and two wins.” A great relief? Someone’s lazy and didn’t want to keep climbing the steps to the stage. Though, I think Kanye West needs to develop that attitude.
