Some quick marks and comments following last night's BAFTAs.
Ross 8/10 - welcome back
Winslet 5/10 - boring, although I've changed my position. I think that Daldry's The Reader is an inferior film but her performance probably does merit an award
BBC1 2/10 - for showing the same Terry Gilliam summary reel twice then cutting the bulk of his acceptance speech...
... running the end credits directly over that third of the screen in which the minor awards were being reviewed
Danny Boyle 8/10 - nice speech, awesome Indian-name recall, first-class, raucously affectionate son
Mickey Rourke 6/10 - startling everyone with a potty-mouth, then bringing them all back onside by dedicating the award to our own hell-raiser Richard Harris
Mick Jagger 4/10 - making a good joke then repeating it thrice
Goldie Hawn 7/10 and James McAvoy 6/10 - for treating the autocue with the disdain it deserves
Ian McKellen 5/10 - ugly plug for Godot but the best award announcement of the evening
Daniel Craig either 2/10 or 8/10 - naming Kate Winslet as Best Actress sotto voce as, depending on your view: he couldn't be bothered, or; he knew no one care's about the film, only the actor
Brad Pitt 7/10 - enduring the steady procession of 'tough job making Brad look old and unattractive' gags with good grace
