THE HURT LOCKER Wins 6 BAFTA Awards Including Best Picture

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts added momentum to The Hurt Locker awards train tonight as they award the film Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, and Best Sound.  Hurt Locker‘s awards in the technical categories are particularly interesting because perhaps Academy-thinking that usually awards those categories to the big blockbuster movies, i.e. Avatar.  But perhaps BAFTA and Oscar voters on the same wavelength and despite the massive box office of Cameron’s tech demo, the Academy could recognize the impressive editing, sound, and achievement in other technical categories (although Avatar won the BAFTA for best visual effects and it’s a lock to win the Oscar in that category as well).

Other nice victories included Colin Firth for Best Actor (A Serious Man), Carey Mulligan for Best Actress (An Education), and my personal favorite: Outstanding British Debut to Duncan Jones for Moon.  He gave a very sweet acceptance speech and I’ve included video of it after the jump along with the full list of winners.

    Colin Firth was in A Single Man, not A Serious Man, just a little FYI.

    The Hurt Locker keeps on winning and winning and winning. But as soon as popularity becomes more important than quality, movies like Avatar win at Golden Globes, and who knows even Oscars.Saw this earlier today… made me happy. Moon has to be the biggest Oscar snub of all-time. Sure Sony hasn't gotten behind it, but that doesn't mean it couldn't have been nominated.
