The 64th Annual British Academy Film Awards  
So the BAFTAs were last night, but I didn't have time to type up my predictions which I made long before the actual ceremony. Therefore, I wasn't swayed by the actual winners, aha. The best part is of course that my bb Andrew Garfield was nominated. Take that, Oscars! And so, without further ado - you know the drill.
