Danny Boyle’s SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE dominated this year’s Orange British Academy Film Awards, scooping seven awards including best film, director, cinematography and adapted screenplay for writer Simon Beaufoy.
“I’ve had a complex relationship with this statue,” Beaufoy said to a packed Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden. “I have a plastic one that I bought from eBay, a chocolate one that I stole from the dinner one year and now, well…”
SLUMDOG producer Christian Coulson will be hoping his trip to the podium for the best film nod will be repeated again in a few weeks at the Oscars. The BAFTAs are presented by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
Mickey Rourke’s career rehabilitation continued apace, slamming home the evening’s lead actor prize for his performance as a washed-up grappler in THE WRESTLER.
