Does it feel like it takes a lot of guts to predict anything but a sweep for The King’s Speech? Stranger things have happened. What if a movie got nominated for 14 BAFTA’s and only won 2. Like say, Best Film and Best Production Design. That would be strange, yeah? What if that movie happened to be Atonement. Today I’m praying for a little strangeness like that. Just a little. My No Guts, No Glory wishes serve a dual purpose as, “BAFTA, Hear my plea!” Somebody somewhere, please surprise us.
Choose three, and make ’em gloriously strange.
1. How to Train Your Dragon over Toy Story 3
2. Lesley Manville gets the recognition she deserves
3. Javier Bardem prevents Colin Firth from winning back-to-back BAFTAs
