Ten (Well, Twelve) Things I Would Like To Say To BAFTA

#1 – I’m proud of you for nominating Drive for Best Film and Best Director. ACADEMY TAKE NOTE.

 

 

 

 

 

#2 – Why did you put Mulligan on the longlist for Best Actress for Shame? She quite obviously should have been nominated for her work in that as opposed to Drive in the Best Supporting category.

#3 – Your Outstanding British Film category is a bit of a shambles, to be honest. Where’s the likes of Tyrannosaur, Submarine, The Guard or Weekend? They were all considerably more ‘Outstanding’ than My Week With Marilyn. But at least you didn’t nominate The Iron Lady.

#4 – Would it have been too much to ask for some love for 50/50?

 

 

 

#5 – TINTIN IS NOT ANIMATED!!!! I’ve lost complete sense of where the lines blur in this category, now, to be honest….

 

#6 – Bejo should not be up for Best Actress. You should have put her nicely in the Best Supporting category instead of Dame Judi and given some room for the thoroughly deserving Olivia Colman.

 

 

 

#7 – What makes you think you’re cool enough to buck the Brooks trend?

 

 

 

 

 

#8 – While we’re in the Supporting categories, you seem to think McCarthy will be Oscar nominated for Bridesmaids. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

 

#9 – This year’s soundtrack category has been an interesting one and the choices here are pretty stellar, but being BAFTA, you could have thrown some love Hanna or Attack The Block’s way. And yet again, what about continuing that love for Drive?

 

#10 – Broadbent and Dench. Yes, I appreciate they’re national treasures and I love them dearly. But there were far better choices that got left out because of their respective nominations.

 

 

#11 – I’m still confused over the people left out of this Rising Star category…

 

 

 

 

#12 – YOU DIDN’T VOTE THE TREE OF LIFE FOR ANYTHING?! NOT EVEN CINEMATOGRAPHY?!! We’re going to fall out, BAFTA.

Anyway, see below for the full list of nominees: Continue reading

Review: Jane Eyre (2011)

DIRECTOR: Cary Joji Fukunaga

CAST: Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender, Judi Dench, Jamie Bell, Amelia Clarkson, Holliday Grainger, Tamsin Merchant, Romy Settbon Moore, Sally Hawkins, Freya Parks, Imogen Poots.

SYNOPSIS: After leaving a difficult and bleak childhood behind her, Jane Eyre (Wasikowska) becomes a governess at Thornfield Hall under the guidance of Mrs. Fairfax (Dench). After meeting the cold and abrupt master of the house, Mr. Rochester (Fassbender), Jane finds a true friend in him and soon finds herself falling in love. Softening his icy exterior, the further he lets her in, the closer she is to discovering a secret that could destroy the love she has for her employer.

Being a little unfamiliar with the story of Jane Eyre, I was very much looking forward to sitting back and enjoying another Gothic-tinged Bronte tale. However, sitting back was the last thing I was able to do, with Fukunaga’s Jane Eyre so fierce and consuming in its love story that you feel as if you are sitting amongst the characters, be it in the drawing room, the school yard or the unforgiving Yorkshire Moors.
