Eye on the BAFTA Awards

The BAFTA Awards are being held this Sunday--for those who don't like acronyms, that's the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards. And why should we in America care? Well, aside from the fact it's hosted by the wonderfully clever Stephen Fry, it turns out a lot of BAFTA voters are also Academy voters. So this figures prominently into figuring out who the ever-changing front-runner for Best Actor is. Many think hometown fave Gary Oldman will score a win for "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," thus putting him firmly in the race. Or George Clooney could pick it up for "The Descendants," putting him back at the forefront. But if SAG Award winner Jean Dujardin takes it for "The Artist"...well, the race is probably over.

The show is airing on BBC1, but if you live in the States, you can catch highlights of the show here.
