HURT LOCKER is BAFTA Orange Winner



SERIES: Hollywood Guild Awards and Oscars®




Kathryn Bigelow's THE HURT LOCKER received six BAFTA awards, including best motion picture, and one to Bigelow for directing.The distributor for the movie is the UK company, Lionsgate.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA®), presented their BAFTA Orange Awards, honoring the best of 2009 in the UK film industry and others, 21 February 2010.

The Los Angeles branch, BAFTA/LA, hosted a buffet brunch which was followed by the live satellite broadcast from London of the BAFTA gala there. You may ask, "What does the British Film and Television Academy (BAFTA) have to do with the U.S. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) Academy Awards®?" Well, BAFTA is the equivalent of the U.S. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS®), and an Orange Award is equivalent to an Oscar®. For more about the BAFTA / Oscar relationship, see the previous post about the BAFTA nominations on this blog.


Actress Vanessa Redgrave received the Academy Fellowship for 2010 from actress Uma Thurman and HRH Prince William, the new President of the Academy, at the Film Awards Gala. The fellowship is the highest accolade bestowed upon an individual in recognition of an outstanding and exceptional contribution to film. Previously honored Fellows include Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, Sean Connery, Elizabeth Taylor, Julie Christie, John Barry, Stanley Kubrick, Anthony Hopkins and Judi Dench. Last year’s recipient was Terry Gilliam.
