BAFTA’s: Daniel Day Lewis Still Winning Awards For Playing The Oil Guy

February 11th, 2008 // 4 Comments

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.

    DD Lewis said in his acceptance speech that he would go way up in his children’s estimation if he got his picture taken with Daniel Radcliffe..and there it is ! lol

    I don’t know why the other Best actor nominees are even botherign to turn up to the award ceremonies, to be honest. It’s kind of obvious who the winner is already.

    Javier Bardem is a dang-on hunk. And Keira Knightly? Ugly and skinny.

    Marion Cotillard is far too young to have such an advanced case of “hooker knees.”

    … a thing called Ethics, whose nature was confusing but if you had it you
    were a High-Class Realtor and if you hadn’t you were a shyster, a piker and
    a fly-by-night. These virtues awakened Confidence and enabled you to handle
    Bigger Propositions. But they didn’t imply that you were to be impractical
    and refuse to take twice the value for a house if a buyer was such an idiot
    that he didn’t force you down on the asking price.
    – Sinclair Lewis, “Babbitt”
