Breaking! Brits Love 'King's Speech'!

Arts-kings-speech-584
The BAFTAs were held yesterday, with home team "The King's Speech" taking pretty much every top category except--oddly--Best Director, which instead went to David Fincher for "The Social Network." I guess those winning actors directed themselves in the winning film. Full list of winners after the jump. What does this mean for Oscar? Not much, honestly. Its two entirely different voting bodies in two different countries, but it will certainly add fuel to the Tom Hooper/David Fincher debate fire.
