Predicting the BAFTAS!

This award's season has flown by with only two weeks till the Oscars, where as today on the other side of the Atlantic, the British Academy of Film & Television Arts and Sciences Awards are taking place. While the ceremony that we will see tonight on BBC America is pre-recorded from this afternoon, I have refrained from looking any of the winners up to be surprised tonight on the televised event at 8/7c. The BAFTAS have a tendency to lean more so towards populist fare, and the case isn't always that British films are the big winners, but that will be the case this year, I think. So here's my predictions (and for a full list of nominees, click here):

Best Film - The King's Speech
Best British Film - The King's Speech
Best Director - Tom Hooper, The King's Speech
Best Actor - Colin Firth, The King's Speech
Best Actress - Natalie Portman, Black Swan

Best Supporting Actress - Amy Adams, The Fighter
Best Original Screenplay - David Seidler, The King's Speech

Best Special Visual Effects - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-Part 1
The rest of the tech categories - The King's Speech
