BAFTA Info and Other Items

The Orange British Academy Film Awards will be held on Sunday, February 10 at the Royal Opera House in London's Covent Garden. Thanks to one of our readers for the following info:

If you're in the US, BBC America will broadcast the Baftas twice on the day of the event, the first time live.

Watch it LIVE here.

BBC Programmers are unsure if it will be made available LIVE yet or not so check nearer the time to ascertain the situation.

The ceremony should be available for viewing for SEVEN days AFTER it's transmission

There is a micro website here.

Also, thanks to Fabien for notifying us that Time magazine is predicting Marion as the winner on Oscar night (although for some reason they pick Julie Christie as the "should win" for the Award...). I'll try to scan the image on Monday.

Finally, thanks a bunch to Giuseppe and the folks from the Dogville Forum for notifying me that their group awarded Marion with 2 Dogville Movie Awards: Best Actress in a leading role (beating Judi Dench,Keira Knightley,Cate Blanchett and Laura Dern) and Best Discovery of 2007 (over Romola Garai and "Lives of the Others").

An award from the fans, I'm sure Marion would very much appreciate it.

Thank you Dorothy for the info. on where to watch the BAFTA. For better or worse I'll be watching and supporting Marion. It's my Super Bowl!
