BAFTA Award winners and losers

The British version of the Oscars - AKA The BAFTAs took place in London on Monday and all the hype was about who would win the big gongs. While James Cameron’s Avatar was in the blue corner, Iraq bomb disposal drama The Hurt Locker was in the realistic corner. Quentin Tarantino’s WWII Inglourious Basterds was in the epic box.

The BAFTAs is the blueprint for the Oscars. Whoever wins at the Brit backslap fest can expect to have 4 fingers on the all important golden statuette Stateside. If this is the case for next month's Oscars (March 7) then the The Hurt Locker is firm favourite after winning BAFTAs for Best Film, Best Director (Kathryn Bigelow), Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Editing and Best Sound.

Avatar predictably scooped Best SFX and Best Production Design whilst Christoph Waltz picked up Best Supporting Actor for Inglourious Basterds.
