BAFTA Awards 2008

Also the BAFTA (British academy of Film and Television Arts) have been awarded. Well the event took place on the 10th of February, but I forgot about it this year!=P Until yesterday night: they showed it on Zulu tv here in Denmark.
To who doesn´t know what the Orange British Academy Film Awards´ aim is, I link this passage: “to recognise those who had contributed outstanding creative work towards the advancement of British film“, so more british love than american one.=) (For
full history visit the site)
I really liked the awarding of
Accademy Felloship prize to Sir Anthony Hopkins: a bit touching! Hehe!

Anche i premi BAFTA (British academy of Film and Television Arts) sono stati assegnati. Veramente la cerimonia di premiazione si é svolta il 10 di Febbraio, ma ne sono dimenticata quest´anno!=P Fino a ieri sera: hanno mostrato la cerimonia sulla tv danese Zulu tv.
Per chi non sapesse quale sia l´obiettivo degli Orange British Academy Awards, cito questo passaggio: “per riconoscere coloro che hanno contribuito con un lavoro di eccezionale creativitá al progresso del cinema britannico”, quindi piú amore britannico e meno americano.=) (Per la storia completa visitare il sito web)
Mi é piaciuta moltissimo la cerimonia di premiazione per l´Accademy Fellowship a Sir Anthony Hopkins: un po´ commovente! Hehe!
