BAFTA Nominations

January 16, 2008 — Leave a comment

Okay, I admit it… I’m not as aware of BAFTA awards or nominations as I am of the Academy Award, or the GG… or lately, the SAG… but today we had a bunch of nominees~~

No Country for Old Men, Atonement, There Will Be Blood, The Lives of Others (last year’s Foreign Film winner at the Oscar), The Bourne Ultimatum, Eastern Promises are some of the nominees for Best Film and Best British Film. While the Coen Bros are a shoo-in in the Best Director category~ lol’ Also, they are among the nominees for Best Adapted Screenplay, while Diablo Cody is in for a Best Original Screenplay. Oh yeah, and Ratatouille is a 99,9% winner in the Best Animated Film category.

In the acting categories, Daniel Day-Lewis, Viggo Mortensen, and Ulrich Mühe (RIP, for The Live of Others) are among the Best Actor category; while Julie Christie, Ellen Page and Marion Cotillard will battle the Best Actress one. In the supporting roles, Javier Bardem and Cate Blanchett are most likely to win!

The BAFTA winners will be announced on Feb. 10th!

  • The Other Boleyn Girl (Hopefully 2007)
  • Goya’s Ghost (2007?)
  • My Blueberry Nights (2007?)
  • The Darjeeling Limited (2007)
  • I’m a Cyborg, but it’s OK (2007???)
  • Martian Child (Oct 26, 2007)
  • The Savages (Sept. 7, 2007)
  • Fido (Jun. 15th)
  • Pierrepoint: The Last Hangman (Jun. 1st)
  • Becoming Jane (Aug. 3)
  • Rocket Science (Aug. 10)
  • Margot at the Wedding (Oct. 19)
  • Persepolis
  • Juno
  • Gone Baby Gone
  • Lars and the Real Girl
  • El Orfanato

I’ve also seen the following that weren’t on my list…

  • The Kingdom
  • Eastern Promises
  • Eagle vs. Shark
  • I Am Legend
  • Den Osynlige
  • The Brave One
  • Backstage
  • All the King’s Men
  • Little Manhattan
  • The Water is Wide
  • Ballet Shoes 1975
  • Ballet Shoes 2007

First week of 2008 is done! Been catching up on many films, and reading news. First things first, Julie Christie seems to be leading the award season, closely followed by Marion Cotillard, and Ellen Page!

The big thing of this season is that Golden Globes will be reduced to just a press conference announcing the winners, meaning that if Marion wins the GG for Best Actress on a Comedy/Musical, she won’t be there to accept the award, and her moment in the spotlight will be shunned by this event.

On other related news, the striking writers seem to be closer to reaching a deal… that would be good for Oscar season… because Oscar is important to Amy. If there’s no Academy Awards this year, it will be the first year in 10 years that she misses the broadcast~~ well, in this case, I wouldn’t miss it because there will be nothing to miss!

I am mostly rubbish at Golden Globes predictions, but I’m pretty sure No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood will be among the winners… Daniel Day Lewis, or Viggo Mortensen, Julie Christie, Marion Cotillard or perhaps Ellen Page? And Could Johnny Depp be there?

Just finished watching Stranger than Fiction. Fantastic film. I just thought I would share a couple of images with Maggie Gyllenhaal, as Ms. Pascal – the Cookie lady, the thoughts of warm cookies gave my stomach fuzzy feelings, reminded me of Waitress, starring Keri Russell.

So here’s to fuzziness! And changing the world with cookies and pies!

Waitress - I Make Pies

Stranger than Fiction - Ms. Pascal

This is my friend’s Cookie Recipes. Some are in Chinese, though.
