Baftas = Boring

This is the completely undefinitive review of the Bafatas 2009 and it completely biased.

The “Orange” (note: the worst phone network in history) Bafta is such a boring boring boring awards ceremony and you know half the people there couldn’t really be arsed turning up; its cold and wet in London, no one cares about the stupid award and you have to listen to Jonathan Ross make daft topical jokes that no one out of England understands or cares to understand.

Anyhow – the Baftas badly sucks balls because it always gives awards to its own, whether they are deserving or not. Hence lots of nominations for British actors and crappy films that no one has ever seen.

Kate Winslet annoys me no end. I like they way they gave her the closest seat to the stage because it was soooooo obvious she was going to win, even though I think Meryl is more deserving.

She’s soooooooo smug. Please god don’t give her the Oscar.

Ooh I love Angelina’s dress…

Mick Jagger made a joke and Brad and Angelina starring the ‘The Sound of Music’ with their millions of kids. Oh, how her jaw clentched but she feined a smile…she can’t exactly kick Mick Jagger’s head in…

For some reason, the Baftas allows D-listers to attend to like Alesha (of former pop band Misteeq – yes, exactly, who?):

Penelope’s fringe looked like someone had put a bowl over it in a hotel and cut, as neatly and as straight as they could. She looks terrible with that hair:

Slumdog Millionare won everything else and it really isn’t even THAT good a movie. Benjamin Button is even worse so either way, its a lose-lose situation.

I am happy about Mickey Rourke winning for the Wrestler, although after his foul mouthed acceptance speech, I can’t imagine the Oscar people wanting to give it to him instead.

Final rant – Noel Clarke won a rising star award (Where the public vote – presumably Noel has a big family and 5000 friends on Facebook because he won):

He wrote, directed and starred in two films called Kidulthood and Adulthood, which my 14 year old Bebo-obsessed cousin says is “Well cool, lolz” which basically tells you all you need to know.

Anyway, our Noel got lots of cheers when he won and like a true gentlemen forgot himself by swaggering up to the stage, popping his collar in true modest fashion…

Boy, you are in the presence of Meryl Streep. You don’t swagger up to the stage like you own the shop – it makes you look like a brat picking up the award at high school with your friends hollering in the background.

Anyway here are the winners:
