Tonight, the Royal Opera House plays host do some of the most

:00:41.:00:48.

celebrated stars in cinema. He is is hugely thrilling for Main.

:00:48.:00:53.

one of the nights in the business that is the pinnacle. The BAFTAs

:00:53.:00:59.

are a great events. And the red carpet is where it starts, the fans.

:00:59.:01:05.

Very passionate! To have people who love music -- movies this match,

:01:05.:01:09.

the love the event, who want to see the people on screen, standing out

:01:09.:01:14.

in the sleet and snow, it says a lot to me, it is really inspiring.

:01:14.:01:19.

We are British, we can handle this! I feel bad for them standing in the

:01:20.:01:24.

wet and cold. This is not bad weather, it is summer rain!

:01:24.:01:34.

No-one does glamour like London. The biggest names in film. Who will

:01:34.:01:40.

be taking home the much coveted BAFTA mask? Django Unchained was

:01:40.:01:45.

probably my favourite. There are so many international nominees tonight.

:01:45.:01:51.

I hope the British take it home! They are all good, that is why they

:01:51.:01:57.

are here. A lot of Bond fans. expect me to say anything but

:01:57.:02:04.

Django?! Ladies and gentlemen, please take your seats for the 2013

:02:04.:02:09.

British Academy Film Awards. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome your

:02:09.:02:19.
:02:19.:02:23.

Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Thank you very much indeed.

:02:23.:02:29.

Thank you, thank you. Good evening, my lords, ladies and gentlemen. Yes,

:02:29.:02:32.

sorry about this, but I suspect that I'm not the only actor who's

:02:32.:02:41.

come here tonight with a beard. It gives you great pleasure to welcome

:02:41.:02:44.

me to the Royal Opera House Covent Garden for the EE British Academy

:02:44.:02:54.
:02:54.:02:59.

Film Awards. The EE British Academy Film Awards, I hear you scream! Now,

:02:59.:03:02.

please, do not become hysterical, I assure you there is no need to

:03:02.:03:05.

panic, you are in the right place, we have simply prefixed a new

:03:06.:03:08.

prefix to our name for reasons. Allah loyal supporters have just

:03:08.:03:14.

had a makeover, we hope the evening will be doubly good. That is the

:03:14.:03:18.

kind of skill for, kidney rupturing hilarious word play you can expect

:03:18.:03:26.

this evening, you lucky people! It is our philosophy here at BAFTA,

:03:26.:03:33.

and I use that word quite wrongly... To focus not on self-congratulation,

:03:33.:03:38.

but on admiration and celebration, so let's get on and be quite

:03:38.:03:42.

unabashed about celebrating what has been based simply magnificent

:03:42.:03:46.

year in film-making. I can honestly say, having presented these awards

:03:46.:03:52.

on many occasions, I cannot remember a roster of films,

:03:52.:03:55.

performances, scripts and productions that I have so admired

:03:55.:04:05.
:04:05.:04:11.

and more importantly enjoyed. We are bursting at the seams here

:04:11.:04:14.

tonight with more panache, elan, radiance, joy, esprit, verve and

:04:14.:04:18.

obsession than you'd find at a perfume counter. This has been the

:04:18.:04:21.

year of the silent letter with Lincoln, Les Miserables and Django

:04:21.:04:23.

Unchained all benefiting from wholly unnecessary alphabetic

:04:23.:04:32.

incursions. Unlike the stars of those films, who are here tonight.

:04:32.:04:35.

Not a wasted letter amongst their names, just listen to how they

:04:35.:04:45.
:04:45.:04:54.

resound, Daniel Day-Lewis, Samuel L Les Miserables, from the French

:04:54.:04:59.

novel, featuring stand-out American and Australian performances is, of

:04:59.:05:07.

course a British film! It was a remarkable experience, quite

:05:07.:05:09.

astonishing, not least seeing Helena Bonham Carter burst in to

:05:09.:05:14.

spontaneous song before she'd had a drink. I am joking, of course, she

:05:14.:05:23.

was drunk every day on set! Banging the drum a little more, our very

:05:23.:05:25.

own 007, James Bond, came up against his most formidable

:05:25.:05:29.

adversary yet last year, a steely foe who sat at the head of a shady

:05:29.:05:33.

operation hell-bent on world domination. Of course, as ever, he

:05:33.:05:36.

emerged victorious when in the final scene he threw Her Majesty

:05:36.:05:45.

out of the helicopter. Talking of old queens, oh, no, I promised the

:05:45.:05:55.
:05:55.:05:59.

BBCi would not do that one! 2012 was the year of the film franchise

:05:59.:06:03.

With the likes of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, a film I don't

:06:03.:06:07.

mind telling you I played a small part in, though it remains in the

:06:07.:06:10.

cutting room, thus making it for me, more of The Hobbit: A Wasted

:06:10.:06:13.

Journey. In fact, I think my scenes will be shown next year in the

:06:13.:06:18.

second Hobbit film. Or if they can squeeze, by which I mean of course,

:06:18.:06:21.

lovingly craft another six films out of the slim volume Tolkien

:06:21.:06:24.

wrote, expect to see me in The Hobbit 9: Are We Nearly Home Yet,

:06:24.:06:32.

Gandalf? There was also Men In Black 3, The Twilight Saga:

:06:32.:06:35.

Breaking Dawn Part 2, The Bourne Legacy and the latest in the Batman

:06:36.:06:38.

series, The Dark Knight Rises, where the caped crusader works

:06:38.:06:42.

tirelessly for the good of his beloved city. Interestingly, I

:06:42.:06:44.

believe they based it on London's very own superhero, Boris Johnson,

:06:44.:06:47.

though he doesn't keep his alter- ego as a millionaire quite as

:06:47.:06:57.
:06:57.:07:04.

hidden. Then there was the first in The Hunger Games trilogy, where

:07:04.:07:07.

children are forced to fight to the death in a simulated arena, an idea

:07:07.:07:10.

we were very keen on to determine tonight's winners, but Quentin

:07:10.:07:13.

Tarantino was just a bit too keen on the idea. Most marvelously,

:07:13.:07:16.

though, the young shining star of The Hunger Games, the mesmeric

:07:16.:07:19.

Jennifer Lawrence, is with us tonight hoping to bag a BAFTA for

:07:19.:07:25.

her simply sublime performance in Silver Linings Playbook. Now,

:07:25.:07:28.

Jennifer, last year a certain Brad Pitt was here and did us the great

:07:28.:07:32.

honour of blowing a kiss to our audience at home, a joyous moment

:07:32.:07:42.
:07:42.:07:45.

that I replay in my mind often and 18 times a day on YouTube. It is a

:07:45.:07:49.

tradition we had started, and we would be delighted if you would

:07:49.:07:54.

continue the contrition down the barrel of camera nine... Gone, blow

:07:54.:08:04.
:08:04.:08:08.

a kiss! Wonderfully kind! A nation's hunger has been sated! We

:08:08.:08:11.

also welcome along one of my all time heroines Sally Field, star of

:08:11.:08:14.

Lincoln and of course amongst so many other things, Forrest Gump's

:08:14.:08:24.
:08:24.:08:24.

mother. Just to be in the same room as her makes my heart beat a tiny

:08:24.:08:29.

bit faster. Also here is the director of the incredible Life of

:08:29.:08:36.

Pee, Ang Li. Hang on, went astray there somehow. He knows what I mean,

:08:36.:08:45.

a brilliant film and director! Star of The Master, the masterful

:08:45.:08:48.

Joaquin Phoenix is with us, he's hoping to join the BAFTA winners'

:08:48.:08:51.

club and become a Baftologist, where he could reach Thetan level

:08:51.:09:01.
:09:01.:09:01.

and... I'm being told by the voice, I think it is Tom Cruise telling me

:09:01.:09:11.

to stop! I will leave it there. Yes, a terrifically terrific year all

:09:11.:09:14.

round, so let's take a trawl, and who better to take a look through

:09:14.:09:17.

such a wonderful year in film with than the ravishingly brilliant

I know people like to bet on who is going to win in various categories,

but let me assure you that the only match that is fixed here is my

outstanding British film presented in honour of Alexander Korda. As

this is the first award of the evening, the award genie granted us

:15:05.:15:08.

three wishes. So, first I wished for eternal youth, which as you can

:15:08.:15:10.

see, was indeed granted. And then I wished for two of the biggest, most

:15:10.:15:15.

talented stars of the moment. And would you believe it? Those wishes

:15:15.:15:20.

also came true. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the star

of Silver Linings Playbook, Bradley Cooper, and the director and star

of Argo, Ben Affleck. His home city is currently under three feet of

:15:40.:15:45.

Good evening. This is our first time at the BAFTAs and it is

:15:45.:15:50.

thrilling to be here. I have always been in awe of the excellence of

:15:50.:15:54.

the British film industry. Influential behind and in front of

:15:54.:16:00.

the camera since its inception. is an honour for me, too. I know I

speak for both of us when I say we are delighted to present the BAFTA

award for outstanding British film. He is keen to get home! I'm not

:18:47.:18:51.

thanks to BAFTA. This is a first for James Bond. And a big thank you

to the cast and crew of Skyfall. And that NGN, Gary, Jonathan and

Roger. Peter Taylor's team in the UK, who broke the all-time box-

:19:04.:19:14.
:19:14.:19:17.

Skyfall was conceived 60 years ago when Ian Fleming wrote the first

:19:17.:19:23.

James Bond novel. It was born 50 years ago when the first film was

:19:23.:19:28.

produced. Since then, it has been nurtured by a whole host of

:19:28.:19:33.

directors, actors, cast and crew. So today, James Bond is loved

:19:33.:19:37.

throughout the world. It is on behalf of those film-makers that

:19:38.:19:47.
:19:48.:19:53.

Barbara and I accept this award. 1292 people worked on this movie

:19:53.:19:57.

and I stand here on behalf of all of them. We all had very high

:19:57.:20:01.

expectations for the film and I think it is fair to say that all of

:20:01.:20:05.

them have been exceeded. This really is the icing on the cake.

:20:05.:20:10.

Thank you very much, BAFTA. There are two people I want to say a

:20:10.:20:13.

special thank you to. The person around whom we build this movie and

:20:13.:20:17.

without whom the movie could not have happened, and that is of

:20:17.:20:26.

course Daniel Craig. For his bravery and his brilliance and his

:20:26.:20:31.

friendship and his sheer bloody- mindedness. And last but by no

:20:31.:20:35.

means least, I want to say thank you to someone who is not here, the

:20:35.:20:40.

great Ian Fleming. 60 years ago almost to the date, he sat down and

:20:40.:20:46.

wrote that he was a secret agent and still alive thanks to the

:20:46.:20:56.
:20:56.:20:59.

detail of his profession. Here's to Although the Royal Opera House is

:20:59.:21:02.

nothing like as glamorous as a car- park in Leicester, let's hope we

:21:02.:21:06.

can unearth some royal bones here in what I hope will be confirmed as

the award for the original screenplay. To present it, the

sumptuous and superlatively scrum to us actor, whose career is now

:21:20.:21:24.

entering its 6th decade. She just keeps getting better and better. I

:21:24.:21:27.

:21:27.:21:36.

the true immortals of Hollywood. -- Louise Rayner. She is still at the

:21:36.:21:40.

top of her game. It goes me enormous pleasure to welcome the

:21:40.:21:50.
:21:50.:22:01.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I was supposed to be out here with

:22:01.:22:05.

the fabulous Eddie Redmayne, but he seems to be puking his guts out

:22:05.:22:09.

back there. He and I did a rehearsal and we were kind of, you

:22:09.:22:17.

know, close. Really close. If I turn grey and start not to feel

:22:17.:22:21.

well, we will know what it is and we are all doomed because this

:22:21.:22:27.

thing spreads like mad. I am absolutely thrilled to be here and

:22:27.:22:31.

I am very happy to be here to be presenting the award for best

:22:31.:22:35.

Original screenplay. As we know, that is where it starts, with the

:22:35.:22:39.

text. Without great text, you do not have a great performance and

:22:39.:22:49.
:22:49.:22:59.

you do not have a great film. So, I am curious what makes you so

:22:59.:23:06.

curious. What did you say, boy? Calm down. No offence given or

:23:07.:23:16.
:23:17.:23:20.

This is it. There is no one coming to rescue. There is nobody hidden

away. There is just us. And we are Is there something frightening

:23:32.:23:38.

here? Frightening? Yes. What scares you so much about travelling into

:23:38.:23:42.

the past? Are you afraid that we might discover that our past has

:23:52.:25:08.

And the BAFTA goes to... Oh, Thanks a lot. This is really nice.

:25:08.:25:16.

Really cool. First I want to thank my actors for doing a banger out a

:25:17.:25:22.

job with my dialogue. Thanks a lot, guys, I appreciate it. And I want

:25:22.:25:26.

to thank BAFTA for giving me this. I think you guys are a terrific

:25:27.:25:30.

organisation. I am famous for not joining organisations but having

:25:30.:25:36.

said that, I am proud to be one of yours. And one last thing about the

:25:36.:25:43.

script. I would also like to thank, in particular, Harvey and Amy

:25:43.:25:47.

because this was a pretty hot potatoes script. For them to do it,

:25:47.:25:51.

pony up a lot of money, do it in the right way, take that same

:25:51.:25:58.

script and go out and make a hit, that is pretty impressive. Thanks a

:25:58.:26:08.
:26:08.:26:14.

Congratulations. Now, ladies and gentlemen, 5 Great films including

:26:14.:26:20.

Django Unchained are in contention for the best film accolade. There

:26:20.:26:24.

are five films, just five, in contention for best film. I could

:26:24.:26:30.

tell you who has won now and save a lot of time and shiny envelopes.

:26:30.:26:35.

Although times are hard, that is not how we roll around here. We are

:26:35.:26:39.

very much going against the fabric of award shows and we would destroy

:26:39.:26:46.

them for ever and then where we would be is... Don't answer that.

:26:46.:26:50.

We will take a leisurely look at each of the five contenders for

:26:50.:26:55.

best film and the first is the edge of your seat powerhouse Argo. It

could be my age, my hectic schedule, or my alcoholism, but when I heard

of this film, I fell foul of a misunderstanding. I was thrilled

:28:08.:28:13.

movie. You are going to be the big shot without doing anything? He yes.

:28:14.:28:20.

I think we were able to get such great actors and that just reflects

:28:20.:28:23.

on the story. I want to cement in people's minds that this is real

:28:23.:28:28.

and it is happening. If I am making a fake movie it has to be a fake it.

:28:28.:28:32.

This will be a first. We are putting them in harm's way and we

:28:32.:28:37.

have to get them out. We don't say it is impossible. People have no

idea how hard it is to direct yourself and the other actors. When

I am on set, he does it with ease. What is great about Argo, although

it is steeped in espionage and bureaucracy at the highest level,

it is about the inexperience. you give me a break? I can't

That's it is yet to be written, as are the scripts which tell us he

The award for best supporting actor has now arrived, so to tell us who

:30:16.:30:19.

has not written an acceptance speech in vain, a brilliant young

:30:19.:30:26.

actor on such an upward trajectory, trajectory, she will soon be space

jumping with Felix Baumgartner, which is easier to say than

:30:29.:30:35.

trajectory! Their performance that had us all salivating in The Hunger

:30:35.:30:39.

Games, quite peckish over here, in Silver Linings Playbook she is

:30:39.:30:44.

quite breathtaking, so please calculate wildly for Jennifer

:30:44.:30:54.
:30:54.:31:01.

Thank you. For a film to beef truly great, every role has to be filled

:31:01.:31:05.

by the very best. The five actors nominated tonight almost certainly

:31:05.:31:12.

that, let's take a closer look at the nominees for supporting actor.

:31:12.:31:22.
:31:22.:31:26.

I am at a slight disadvantage, in so far as I do not know what they

:31:26.:31:36.
:31:36.:31:39.

look like. But you do. Don't you? You want to set up a fake movie,

:31:39.:31:44.

like to Hollywood, where everybody lies for a living, then sneak 007

:31:44.:31:53.

into a country where they drink blood on their breakfast cereal.

:31:53.:32:03.
:32:03.:32:11.

What do you do? I too many, many things. I am a writer, a doctor, a

:32:11.:32:15.

nuclear physicist, a theoretical philosopher. But above all, I am a

:32:15.:32:25.
:32:25.:32:29.

man. What violates natural law? I do not give a damn about what

:32:29.:32:35.

they want. This is for the good of the people without caring much for

:32:35.:32:45.
:32:45.:32:51.

There is a first time for everything. What makes you think

:32:51.:33:01.
:33:01.:33:27.

And the BAFTA goes to... Christoph Thank you, thank you so much of

:33:27.:33:35.

this immense honour. It is... Why I get to stand here is not a mystery,

:33:35.:33:39.

because it says so at the very beginning of our movie, written and

:33:39.:33:46.

directed by Quentin Tarantino. But of course I want to thank Jamie Fox

:33:46.:33:50.

and Leonardo DiCaprio and Sam Jackson and Kerry Washington for

:33:50.:33:57.

their camaraderie and help, and Harvey Weinstein, for the attention

:33:58.:34:02.

and... I want to thank Adam Schweitzer for his support and

:34:02.:34:07.

enthusiasm, Lisa Costello for making me shine. But it all starts

:34:07.:34:17.
:34:17.:34:17.

and ends with Quentin. And... Really, beyond everything that I

:34:17.:34:20.

need and want to thank you for, Quentin, the thing that touches me

:34:20.:34:28.

the most is your unconditional trust that I will put your creation

:34:28.:34:38.
:34:38.:34:55.

to its proper use. Use silver pens We now turn to outstanding debut by

:35:11.:35:18.

and we hear were the winners in gaining Carl Foreman's talents as a

producer-director, and this award is named for him and all victims of

censorship and suppression. To tell us who has again failed to write

presenting an unsuspecting stranger with a desk man -- death mask on a

:36:34.:36:36.

For the most outstanding debut by a British writer, director or

:36:36.:36:40.

producer, clearly this is an award for someone relatively new to the

:36:40.:36:44.

industry, which kind of rules me out of it. But I might be in with a

:36:44.:36:49.

chance if the Watt was outstanding swansong for an old fart. Looking

:36:49.:36:59.

them into a visual reality. Facing the big idea of the unknown, it is

a mental scope. Because of that, I thought I might need another

dimension, the new look of 3D, a I think there were a lot of

is truly spectacular. One of the central themes of Life Of Pi is

asking the audience to question what they think is real. That was

our job in visual effects, to ask the audience if the tiger and the

ocean were real. I guess if we are holding this, we did OK. I thank

you. I want to thank Elizabeth and built for persevering to make this

film for 10 years. And their director, Ang Lee. The work is

first time this next actor has ever presented an award here at BAFTA.

:53:32.:53:35.

the best film award is the enthralling Zero Dark Thirty. This

:53:35.:53:37.

was billed as history's greatest manhunt for the world's most

:53:37.:53:40.

dangerous man, so naturally I assumed it was the National Rifle

:53:50.:53:52.

Association of America's attempt to track down Piers Morgan. I was

reluctant to see it because I had not seen 29th of the other an Zero

:53:58.:54:02.

Dark Thirty brand to his films. Behold, the sensational and Zero

:54:02.:54:12.

The movie takes you behind the scenes on the decade-long hunt that

:54:12.:54:16.

led to finding the world's most dangerous man. I want to make

:54:16.:54:19.

something absolutely clear. There is nobody else coming to the rescue,

:54:19.:54:24.

it is just us. Nobody knows what it is like to disappear in the shadows

:54:24.:54:29.

as a CIA operative in that part of the world. Why should I help you?

:54:29.:54:33.

Why do you only call me when I need help? How about a Lamborghini? I

:54:33.:54:38.

only need a phone number. But there are lots of people across the world

:54:38.:54:42.

involved in the hunt and we could not capture every aspect. He has

:54:42.:54:47.

called from two payphones, never using the same telephone number

:54:47.:54:53.

twice. It was those specific and it led the CIA to him. You cannot run

person who was the hero. There is a 60% probability that he is there.

think there were many heroes in that story. I know that this freaks

you out but it is 100. It is going to happen? When? Tonight. The Zero

:55:21.:55:26.

Dark Thirty means 20 minutes past midnight, which means wait until it

:55:26.:55:36.
:55:36.:55:51.

is dark enough and then come in. Quite literally history in the

:55:51.:55:54.

making and the making of history. But will it complete its not-quite-

:55:54.:55:57.

as-secret mission tonight and carry off the BAFTA? I have no idea, but

:55:58.:56:01.

I'll stick my neck out and say it has a one in five chance. The award

:56:02.:56:05.

for best film is one of the many delights still awaiting us. Others

:56:05.:56:09.

include, but are not limited to, the awards for rising star,

:56:09.:56:10.

documentary, actor, actress and of course the fellowship. All in good

:56:10.:56:16.

time though. Or just time. So, in the pre-ordained order of things we

:56:16.:56:19.

now come to adapted screenplay. To present this award we have found

:56:19.:56:21.

ourselves a couple of real belters from opposite sides of the Atlantic.

:56:21.:56:24.

Representing the UK is an English King Midas who has worked his magic

:56:24.:56:28.

on such as Star Trek and Mission Impossible. And representing the US

:56:28.:56:31.

is an award-winning actress whose multi-talented talents have been on

:56:31.:56:35.

display in the likes of Pearl Harbour and Juno. Please go "yee-

:56:35.:56:38.

ha" and "jolly good show" in equal measure for Simon Pegg and Jennifer

:56:38.:56:48.
:56:48.:56:56.

Thank you. I think I speak for both of us when I say how excited we are

:56:56.:57:00.

to be presenting the award for adapted screenplay. You certainly

:57:00.:57:06.

do. I thought that rather come up with something original and funny,

:57:06.:57:11.

we would adapt the words that we used last year. With that in mind,

:57:11.:57:17.

please give it up for Jennifer. OK, here goes. Let's take a look at

:57:17.:57:27.
:57:27.:57:35.

Why did you ordered tea? Because you or did raisin bread. I didn't

:57:35.:57:39.

want you to mistake it for a date. It can still be a date if you order

:57:39.:57:49.
:57:49.:57:51.

raisin bread. That is not a date. Do you want to be dead? No. The E

:57:51.:57:58.

want to leave me alone? -- do you want to leave me alone? If you be

:57:58.:58:08.
:58:08.:58:09.

I never thought it would bring me so much happiness. That a bucket

:58:09.:58:16.

and a knife could become my greatest treasure. In times like

:58:16.:58:20.

these, I remember that he has as little experience of the real-world

:58:20.:58:30.
:58:30.:58:33.

In that 2000 year-old book of mechanical law, it is a self-

:58:33.:58:36.

evident truth that things that are equal to the same thing are equal

:58:36.:58:43.

to each other. If you are going to do this, you

:58:43.:58:51.

have got to do it. You cannot build cover stories around a movie that

:58:51.:58:57.

does not exist. You need a script and a producer. You are an

:58:57.:59:07.
:59:07.:59:09.

Who do you want to win? The Bath did goes to Silver Linings Playbook.

:59:09.:59:19.
:59:19.:59:49.

This is a wonderful year for film and for writers, and it is very

:59:49.:59:52.

difficult to put all these films together. Our film is about emotion

:59:53.:59:57.

and people, and this is for every family that faced those emotions,

:59:57.:00:01.

those struggles, and millions do it every day. I want to think Jennifer

:00:01.:00:07.

Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Chris Tucker, our entire cast.

:00:07.:00:15.

I want to thank my son, who inspired the story. And I... I am

:00:15.:00:20.

probably forgetting lots of people, but I will keep it short. God bless

:00:34.:00:40.

which is presented in honour of one of Britain's foremost producers,

:00:40.:00:45.

Daniel Day-Lewis' grandfather, the great Michael Bolton. To make this

:00:45.:00:48.

presentation, a multi-award-winning director has made an outstanding

:00:48.:00:51.

contribution to sport, although if you have ever seen him on a pommel

:00:51.:00:56.

horse, you will know that I do not mean athletically. He was the

:00:56.:01:00.

creative genius behind the greatest Olympic Opening Ceremony of all

:01:00.:01:04.

time, and with films like Trainspotting and Slumdog

:01:04.:01:07.

Millionaire to his credit, he is one of the greats. Please welcome

:01:07.:01:17.
:01:17.:01:26.

Thanks very much! Barcelona are arguably the greatest football team

:01:26.:01:27.

ever, but when asked to was the greatest living footballer, their

:01:27.:01:34.

midfield general, Iniesta and Messi picked Paul Scholes of Manchester

:01:34.:01:42.

United. Stick with me! There was surprise, because Paul Scholes is a

:01:42.:01:46.

modest man who shuns the limelight, even when his car is nicked from

:01:46.:01:52.

his driveway. I am very proud to be here tonight to thrust another shy

:01:52.:01:56.

genius into the spotlight on behalf of the British film industry. Their

:01:57.:02:01.

incredible effort, determination and belief are why power industry

:02:01.:02:04.

continues to thrive. She is a visionary, someone who was willing

:02:04.:02:08.

to take a chance, take a risk and back a writer, director or producer

:02:08.:02:13.

when others have turned them away. As head of film and drama at

:02:13.:02:16.

FilmFour, she has passionately championed new talent and actively

:02:16.:02:20.

sought out challenging and controversial projects that were

:02:20.:02:24.

deemed too risky or unprofitable by the open market. What is more, time

:02:24.:02:28.

and again, their uncanny instinct has been proven right, and these

:02:28.:02:32.

projects have become huge worldwide successes. Many of us here tonight,

:02:32.:02:37.

myself included would not be where we are today without her wise,

:02:37.:02:43.

indefatigable, modest and, yes, capable of the odd mistimed tackle,

:02:43.:02:47.

I can pay her no greater compliment than to say she really is the poor

:02:47.:02:53.

skills of the British film industry. Let's take a look at some of her

:02:53.:03:00.

work. -- Paul Scholes. Right, Mr Braithwaite, the sun will come out

:03:00.:03:10.
:03:10.:03:14.

I am sick of all these stereotypical murderous type movies.

:03:14.:03:24.
:03:24.:03:27.

You do not know karate! Crazy! repairs and a racist talk. Is that

:03:27.:03:37.
:03:37.:04:00.

Everything all right? Ready? Set? 1, 2, 3, Go! It stops them taking

:04:00.:04:10.
:04:10.:04:10.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 97 seconds

:04:10.:04:53.

I think it could work, don't you? Ladies and gentlemen, the Michael

:04:53.:04:55.

Balcon Award for Outstanding Contribution to British cinema goes

:04:55.:05:05.
:05:05.:05:24.

Well, thank you, thank you so much. You will have seen those clips and

:05:24.:05:27.

you will know jolly well that work is by a host of other people, an

:05:27.:05:33.

army of other people and not me, not least this wonderful man, whom

:05:33.:05:37.

I have had the most wonderful time working with. I would love to list

:05:37.:05:40.

aims and do proper thank-yous, but the list is so long that I thought

:05:40.:05:44.

she would not mind and you would forget me if I just said a huge

:05:44.:05:47.

thank-you to the extraordinary writers and visionary directors,

:05:47.:05:52.

the magical technicians and actors, the dogged producers that I have

:05:52.:05:55.

had the huge privilege of working with. I have learnt something every

:05:55.:05:59.

day and continue to do so, and in truth those wild, winding, Crazy

:05:59.:06:03.

Jenny's, looking at Danny, have been the very best bit of the work

:06:03.:06:09.

for me. -- Crazy journeys. I get to take this wonderful thing home to

:06:09.:06:13.

put it on my mantelpiece. I have looked jealously at the team's

:06:13.:06:17.

coming up, because I share this with my team at FilmFour, a group

:06:17.:06:21.

of people who are truly exceptional and like a second family. They are

:06:21.:06:25.

incredibly committed, they are clever, they are passionate and

:06:25.:06:29.

patient, full of ingenuity, and they have huge integrity. They do a

:06:29.:06:34.

huge amount with very little, and really the reason we can work this

:06:34.:06:38.

built 30 years ago by some brilliant people, amongst them

:06:38.:06:43.

David Rose and Jeremy Isaacs. The vision was very simple, and it was

:06:43.:06:47.

this, to take the values of what was then a very new public service

:06:47.:06:52.

channel, Channel 4, and those values were of taking risks, of

:06:52.:06:55.

nurturing talent, of doing things differently, of challenging

:06:55.:06:58.

preconceptions, and taking those values to the community in this

:06:58.:07:01.

country, talented people who want to make feature films, and really

:07:01.:07:05.

that is it. It is as simple as that, and that is the vision we have

:07:05.:07:09.

today. As the world changes and our business changes at a rate of knots,

:07:09.:07:12.

it seems those values are what cherishing and working with even

:07:12.:07:18.

more than ever before. It really works like this, my team and I meet

:07:18.:07:21.

somebody, somebody we have never met, somebody who has a story to

:07:21.:07:25.

tell that we could not have imagined. A story that only that

:07:25.:07:29.

person could have told, and our job is to support that person, to

:07:29.:07:34.

protect their creativity above all else, to give them time and energy

:07:34.:07:39.

and money. And there is no greater privilege than supporting people

:07:39.:07:44.

like that. So thank you very much for this. It is wonderful to be

:07:44.:07:46.

part of building a legacy that his film for, but in truth the thing

:07:46.:07:49.

that matters most to me is that it should continue to do bigger and

:07:49.:07:53.

braver things and that it should be a central part of the cultural life

:07:53.:08:03.
:08:03.:08:09.

for very many years. Thank you very For those of you keeping count, and

:08:09.:08:12.

those of you that can't, we now come to the fourth film sweating it

:08:12.:08:17.

out in the best film category, the epic, thought-provoking Lincoln. I

:08:18.:08:21.

actually got an email inviting me to join this film, the call from

:08:21.:08:25.

Spielberg has come at last, I thought. Sadly, though, on closer

:08:25.:08:35.

inspection I had in fact been invited to join LinkedIn. A huge

:08:35.:08:40.

disappointment that we all share, will you stop it, LinkedIn?! But

:08:40.:08:45.

then I thought, who wants to be in a film about a small cathedral town

:08:45.:08:49.

in the English countryside. So I bought the rights! Call me Susan in

:08:50.:08:53.

Lincoln did not turn out to be a master work about a masterful

:08:53.:08:57.

leader. As my dear old grandmother used to say, cop a load of this,

:08:57.:09:07.

I have always been interested in telling the story of Abraham

:09:07.:09:11.

Lincoln, one of the most compelling figures in American history and in

:09:11.:09:15.

my life. Abolishing slavery by constitutional provision settles

:09:15.:09:21.

the fate For All coming Time! wanted to show him accomplishing

:09:21.:09:27.

something monumental. On February 1st I will sign the 13th Amendment!

:09:27.:09:31.

However, we also wanted to show he was a man, not a monument.

:09:31.:09:34.

choosing the last four months of the war, you get not only a

:09:35.:09:38.

beginning, middle and end to an incredibly thrilling question of

:09:38.:09:44.

whether the 13th Amendment is going to pass Congress... But you also

:09:44.:09:48.

get Lincoln, you get his interior fighting with himself, you get the

:09:48.:09:54.

people around him, people he trusts, and you get his political skills.

:09:54.:09:58.

This gang of talentless six rejected the amendment 10 months

:09:58.:10:03.

ago, we will lose. I like our chances now. In such a rich way,

:10:03.:10:07.

through his intellect, his humour, his melancholy, we see someone

:10:07.:10:13.

whose life is lived at one and the same time in that strange paradox

:10:13.:10:17.

of public and private. I wanted to make a film that represented the

:10:17.:10:22.

Times and mood of the nation, the mood of the individuals trying to

:10:22.:10:27.

find the solutions. I wanted to feel there was a real sense of

:10:27.:10:30.

authenticity on the set were the only real imposition would be the

:10:30.:10:35.

camera. Lincoln is relevant to the present because his presidency, I

:10:35.:10:40.

believe, offers the most vivid model of a leader, and I always

:10:40.:10:42.

believe that trying to make sense of what actually happened in the

:10:42.:10:46.

past always helps to shape our present, and that history is always

:10:46.:10:49.

relevant in the sense that understanding how we got to where

:10:49.:10:56.

we are well help figure out where we want to go from here. Congress

:10:56.:11:05.

must never declare equal those who God created unequal! Slavery, sir,

:11:05.:11:15.
:11:15.:11:15.

A truly inspired work, but what does the more immediate future hold

:11:15.:11:23.

for Lincoln? It doesn't have a reputation for doing well in

:11:23.:11:30.

theatres, that this will change everything. We now come by both

It is such a pleasure to be asked to present the EE Rising Star Award.

:16:05.:16:11.

I love it because these young nominees are still untouched by

:16:11.:16:15.

fame and fortune so they are not all jaded and gross like, well, you

know... Yeah, that is why I have always made a conscious decision to

thank you to all of the voters, especially my little brother Felix,

of this without Michael or Billy Lazarus, the most amazing agents

that you could ever ask for. I also have to thank Terry, and Tesco, for

wonderful people and to my father who made him want to do this. Thank

We come now to that sad interlude where we take a few, all too short,

:20:22.:20:25.

moments to remember those from our industry who have sadly passed away

:20:25.:20:28.

during the last twelve months. As Abraham Lincoln said, "In the end,

:20:28.:20:32.

it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your

:20:32.:20:35.

years." and the wonderful memories they have given us are testament to

:20:35.:20:45.
:20:45.:21:13.

I have travelled so far and all I I am just a fat, little man. A fat,

:21:13.:21:23.

:22:00.:22:10.

up your mind and then I will tell Yes! Yes! I will have what she is

:22:20.:22:20.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 97 seconds

:22:20.:23:02.

You are my best friend. No, really. Angels just light up in heaven.

:23:02.:23:12.
:23:12.:23:31.

Now, my radar has picked up very strong signals that the award for

:23:32.:23:34.

documentary is close by, so let's get the presenters out here and

:23:35.:23:38.

hope that it's correct. One of them has taken a leaf out of my book and

:23:38.:23:41.

is about to be seen wearing his underpants over his trousers,

:23:41.:23:44.

though in his case it's because he's the new Superman as opposed to

:23:44.:23:50.

an absent-minded old oaf. And the other has been delighting us all as

:23:50.:23:57.

Bilbo Baggins. He will continue to for many years, as many years as

Warner Brothers can squeeze, again I mean lovingly craft... Ladies and

gentlemen, Martin Freeman and Henry Good evening. Perhaps more than any

:24:18.:24:22.

other form of art the documentary has the almost unique ability to

:24:22.:24:31.

inform, astonish, and enthral and entertain its audience at the same

:24:31.:24:37.

time. The five powerful words nominated in tonight's category do

:25:47.:25:57.
:25:57.:26:27.

What an honour. There is so much stuff I would like to say but I am

:26:27.:26:31.

not going to do that tonight. I want to say thank you to some

:26:31.:26:39.

people, firstly BAFTA. This is fantastic. Thank you, BAFTA. I want

:26:39.:26:49.

to thank Sony Classics, Simon, John, sitting over there, wonderful.

:26:49.:26:53.

Thank you to Studio Canal as well. We are incredibly gratified to be

:26:53.:27:00.

able to introduce the wonderful Rodriguez and his music to say many

:27:00.:27:07.

people through this film. You want to say something? We hope to would

:27:07.:27:12.

be here but at this very moment he is playing to a sold-out stadium in

:27:12.:27:19.

Cape Town. It is particularly great that he is finally getting the

:27:19.:27:29.
:27:29.:27:34.

recognition and royalties that he Now where would the top five best

:27:34.:27:37.

film category be without the fifth film? Well, a top four, but you

:27:37.:27:40.

nominated five, so five you will jolly well have. That final nominee

:27:40.:27:48.

is the earth-shattering triumph Les Miserables. Now I must say, when I

:27:48.:27:51.

went to see Les Mis, I found the 3D effects to be quite remarkable,

:27:51.:27:54.

though somewhat less so when I realised I'd gone to see it on

:27:54.:28:04.
:28:04.:28:09.

stage. I assumed it would be in French and I managed to understand

:28:09.:28:16.

80% of it! Feast your eyes on the spectacle, the wonderful, filmed

:28:16.:28:26.
:28:26.:28:27.

with the accent on the second From the very beginning, what

:28:27.:28:32.

excited me about doing Les Miserables was doing it live. There

:28:32.:28:36.

is something about what an actor does live on the day, that whether

:28:36.:28:41.

you pre-record or post record, is never the same. Singing live is

:28:41.:28:46.

daunting but what it gives you is freedom. When you are doing a love

:28:46.:28:50.

scene as an actor you wish there was music to help you get there.

:28:50.:28:55.

But now you can hear the piano and the music. What comes with this way

:28:55.:28:59.

of working is the fragility of the voice, which matches with the

:28:59.:29:06.

emotions of what a character is saying. Everybody felt that it was

:29:06.:29:10.

breaking a lot of very new ground. You have got to find a language and

:29:10.:29:20.

the language in this film comes right from the actives' hearts. --

:29:20.:29:25.

actors'. There seems to be something selfish about going for

:29:25.:29:35.
:29:35.:29:36.

the British version. Les Miserables has to feel real, immediate. There

:29:36.:29:43.

is an emotional level to those that cannot be created in the studio.

:29:43.:29:46.

thought there was an amazing opportunity to do something

:29:46.:29:56.
:29:56.:30:11.

So five awards remain, but not any five, just listen, director,

:30:11.:30:16.

actress, actor, film and fellowship. They meatier bunch of awards you

:30:16.:30:22.

could not wish for, and not a trace Macca -- a trace of horse in any of

:30:22.:30:26.

them. The first to concern us is the award for director, named in

:30:26.:30:32.

honour of David Lean, and to present it a towering, shining,

:30:32.:30:37.

multi-award-winning, accolade receiving acting legend, ladies and

:30:37.:30:47.
:30:47.:30:55.

gentlemen, the Peerless Divinity, Stephen, good evening, ladies and

:30:55.:30:59.

gentlemen. Of the many people who contribute to the making of a film

:30:59.:31:06.

and its success, none works harder than the director. None has more

:31:06.:31:09.

responsibility, in that the director affects the work of

:31:09.:31:13.

everyone else working on the film, and that is why actors so often

:31:13.:31:17.

want to share their best acting awards with the director, and why

:31:17.:31:24.

the same is certainly true of awards for best film. And now the

:31:24.:31:28.

five contrasting and outstanding directors whom BAFTA has said have

:31:28.:31:38.
:31:38.:31:46.

been working at their very best I Denmead the biscuit, but God made

Thank you so much! I will try to be brief, everyone has been so

:33:34.:33:38.

eloquent and brief. I have to thank Warner Brothers, who supported

Payne, Sue, Veronica, Geoff, I remember their names in part

:33:42.:33:49.

because they are sitting right there! They did amazing things,

Graham Kane, the greatest producers in the world, they use their cachet

:33:53.:33:58.

to make great films and they stood by me, George Clooney, really

spectacular. Chris Terrio wrote the script, it is masterful, it will

Sam, very much, although I am quite sure they are asleep by now.

Everyone who worked on the Mowgli, everybody this movie is about, all

want to thank everyone. And I want to say, you know, this is a second

:34:53.:34:58.

want to dedicate this to anyone else out there who was trying to

strange, and there is nothing odd about BAFTA, as you have found out,

Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. actors working today that I believe

And the BAFTA goes to... Daniel Thank you, ladies and gentlemen,

:42:19.:42:25.

thank you, BAFTA. Well, just on the chance that I might one day have to

:42:25.:42:29.

speak on an evening such as this, I have actually stayed in character

:42:29.:42:39.
:42:39.:42:45.

I had a varied selection of sets down scaled, dating from the late

:42:45.:42:50.

1950s, placed in every single room of every house I have ever lived in.

:42:50.:42:56.

And every time I rise from nature, it spontaneously unleashes a

:42:56.:43:03.

soundtrack of thunderous applause, with a few boos and some drunken

:43:03.:43:13.
:43:13.:43:17.

I am so very grateful to BAFTA for this and for all the encouragement

:43:17.:43:22.

you have given me over the years, it has meant a great deal to me,

:43:22.:43:26.

such generous recognition of our film. My fellow nominees, I do not

:43:26.:43:29.

know if I deserve this, but I know that every single one of you

:43:30.:43:38.

deserves it at least as much as I do. My colleagues, represented here

:43:38.:43:45.

by the wonderful producer Kathleen Kennedy, I... I miss you, I Miss We

:43:45.:43:49.

were still on this expedition together, and it turns out we were

:43:49.:43:55.

not on a rudderless boat. Steven Spielberg was the rudder, the

:43:55.:44:00.

helmsman, the boat builder, the boat and the sea we sailed on, and

:44:00.:44:10.
:44:10.:44:17.

to the end of my days, thank you, So, we've teased and tantalised the

:44:17.:44:23.

nominees for best film and now it's time to coax out the winner. To

:44:23.:44:26.

help us find our presenter we enlisted some of the world's top

:44:26.:44:31.

casting directors and gave them a seemingly impossible task. We

:44:31.:44:34.

specified that we wanted a brilliant actor who's appeared in

:44:34.:44:40.

some of the biggest films ever and Snakes On A Plane. He had to be A

:44:40.:44:47.

List, cool, legendary and most importantly in London tonight.

:44:47.:44:50.

Frankly, we didn't think they'd come up with anyone suitable, but

:44:50.:45:00.
:45:00.:45:20.

boy were we wrong. Please welcome Can I just said I... Of course I

:45:20.:45:26.

can say, I am Samuel L Jackson! It has been an absolutely marvellous

:45:26.:45:29.

evening and I think half of Hollywood is here tonight. It is

:45:29.:45:36.

not just movie-star us here. Everybody has made the trip. Agents,

:45:36.:45:40.

lawyers, management, PR people, everyone. I know because they were

:45:40.:45:50.

all on my flight. I was doing a remake of Snakes on a Plane. But

:45:50.:45:55.

enough about award-winning films of the past. It has been a truly

:45:55.:45:59.

magnificent year in film which is why I could not pick a winner out

:45:59.:46:03.

of the five great works of film in the best Film category. Let's take

:47:55.:47:58.

smart and you know what you want but more importantly you love what

:47:58.:48:02.

you are doing and I cannot tell you what an honour it has been to work

with you. Grant, 30 years ago we were in a play together in Los

me $100 to get head shots. I still use those! We have been partners

:48:22.:48:25.

ever since. We have failed a tremendous amount of our careers

:48:25.:48:31.

are over time, which were great lessons. I am so proud to be able

:48:31.:48:35.

to stand up here and introduce you to a man who I believe to be the

:48:35.:48:42.

best producer that I have ever worked with and a dear friend.

:48:42.:48:52.

Thank you. We would like to thank BAFTA for this. This is amazing. Of

:48:52.:48:58.

course all the folks at Warner Brothers and a whole litany of

:48:58.:49:03.

people to thank that we will do on our own. I want to turn to Ben

:49:03.:49:07.

Affleck, the director of this film. I want to say thank you for coming

:49:07.:49:12.

on board and taking us on this journey. It has been amazing. I

:49:12.:49:16.

also wanted to say how much I love my beautiful wife Lisa and our

:49:16.:49:22.

children. Thank you so much, everybody, really. That was what I

:49:22.:49:27.

was going to whisper in his ear. Every single person that is part of

:49:27.:49:34.

BAFTA and has welcome doves and been so -- welcomed us and been so

:49:34.:49:37.

kind, when I was back in the studio they said that we never win, and

:49:37.:49:43.

everybody has been so nice. I want to thank BAFTA, and just everybody.

:49:43.:49:53.
:49:53.:50:02.

A wonderful evening for Argo. Congratulations to everyone

:50:02.:50:06.

concerned. We now come to the fellowship, the highest honour

:50:06.:50:09.

bestowed by the British Academy. To make the presentation a double

:50:09.:50:12.

Oscar winning, BAFTA winning actor. He is a true master of his craft

:50:12.:50:15.

and to his eternal credit has chosen to live in England rather

:50:15.:50:18.

than his native America. Amazing how quickly he's picked up the

:50:18.:50:21.

language. If I said The Usual Suspects, your pulse rate would

:50:21.:50:26.

increase. If I said LA Confidential, you'd begin to feel an almost

:50:26.:50:29.

uncontrollable excitement. And if I said American Beauty you would

:50:29.:50:32.

break out in unrestrained rapturous and riotous applause for the

:50:32.:50:42.
:50:42.:51:00.

Good evening. Why is Alan Parker? Why is he? Hello. Congratulations.

:51:00.:51:05.

It is a great privilege for me to present the BAFTA Fellowship Award

:51:05.:51:09.

tonight, the highest accolade bestowed upon an individual in

:51:09.:51:11.

recognition of outstanding an exceptional contribution to the art

:51:11.:51:17.

of motion pictures. Once in a lifetime, a generation, an

:51:17.:51:20.

individual, comes along who transforms and transcends their

:51:20.:51:24.

craft and tonight's recipient, ladies and gentlemen, is no

:51:24.:51:32.

exception. He is a legendary writer, producer, cartoonist, a chef... Are

:51:32.:51:37.

you a chef? You are tonight. Story teller, champion of emerging film-

:51:37.:51:42.

makers, teacher. Famed as much for his clarity of vision and film-

:51:42.:51:45.

making originality as for his unswerving support of the British

:51:45.:51:51.

film industry, that he loves so very much. Alan Parker's entry into

:51:51.:51:55.

directing could not have been less planned. He had successfully worked

:51:55.:51:58.

in commercials and he asked his boss if his team could be given a

:51:58.:52:02.

budget to continue the experiment in advertising. One guy held the

:52:02.:52:07.

camera, one guided the art department, and he decided to be

:52:07.:52:11.

the guy that said action. His films played two or wide audience but

:52:11.:52:18.

each is significant and unusual. -- played to a wide audience. His work

:52:18.:52:21.

with actors is crucial but he also lets his camera subtle on people,

:52:21.:52:26.

sometimes people new to the art form. He allows his lens to be

:52:26.:52:36.
:52:36.:52:37.

patient anti-freeze them up. His work allows us to get close. -- and

:52:37.:52:46.

he makes them free. He has given us some of the most memorable movie

:52:46.:52:51.

moments ever. His incomparable contribution to British cinema has

:52:51.:52:55.

won him the acclaim that he so clearly deserves. His films have

:52:55.:53:00.

won a breathtaking 19 BAFTAs. He is a man that I am very proud to call

:53:00.:53:06.

a colleague and above all a friend. Let's take a look at some of Sir

:53:06.:53:16.

:53:21.:53:28.

:53:35.:53:40.

:53:40.:53:49.

:53:49.:53:59.

version without his 35. -- is 35. Don't you want success? Sure, I

:53:59.:54:09.
:54:09.:54:18.

just don't think my tits are up to # Fame! I'm going to live for ever.

:54:18.:54:28.
:54:28.:54:44.

Ladies and gentlemen, please be upstanding for a remarkable film-

:54:44.:54:48.

maker. If you come to the party after, he has promised to make you

:54:48.:54:58.
:54:58.:55:38.

Oh, boy. Thank you. Thanks. God, this is incredibly flattering. When

:55:38.:55:43.

it was first mooted that I might get this award, I thought about

:55:43.:55:51.

what I might say. 10 years went by... So Russell Crowe has written

:55:51.:56:00.

me a poem. It will only be cut out. When you are halfway through your

:56:00.:56:08.

first film, you are certain that it is surely going to be your last.

:56:08.:56:13.

Then you kind of blink, and 40 years have gone by. And then you

:56:13.:56:19.

have made 14 films. It is quite a surprise, really. But you always

:56:19.:56:23.

know you are going to get there. However hard it is on the movie, if

:56:23.:56:27.

you squeeze your eyes together, you're always going to get to the

:56:27.:56:33.

wrap party, even if you think not. When I was a little boy I was aged

:56:33.:56:42.

about 10 and my junior school. We had been to see Jack plans and Jeff

:56:42.:56:49.

Chandler in Sign of the pagan. I came back and I divided the entire

:56:49.:56:56.

playground into Roman's and hands. Although I did not actually say

:56:56.:57:02.

action, I did give the command for them to attack the Romans, who were

:57:02.:57:09.

defended the outside toilets. The resultant bloodshed, which was

:57:09.:57:16.

quite considerable, meant that I went before the headmaster. He said,

:57:16.:57:21.

why, Parker? Why? If I had known then that I was going to get this I

:57:21.:57:31.

could have really shut him up! I will be very brief. My mentor, the

:57:31.:57:35.

great Fred Zimmerman, who used to critique each of my films, not

:57:35.:57:42.

always kindly, said to me that it is a great privilege to be a

:57:43.:57:50.

director. Don't waste it. Hopefully over the last 40 years, some of the

:57:50.:58:00.
:58:00.:58:12.

time I did not waste it. Thank you, Well, I don't know when I have had

:58:12.:58:17.

more fun, certainly not without the use of a water-soluble lubricant.

:58:17.:58:22.

Till everybody watching, thank you for supporting film. Keep going to

:58:22.:58:27.

your local cinemas, keep talking and arguing about film. Some of you

:58:27.:58:31.

watching will find your way to this stage one day. If you do, contrary

:58:31.:58:36.

to popular belief, you will not find yourself in the company of a

:58:37.:58:41.

bunch of bitches, self-obsessed, up themselves Prix Madonnas, well,

:58:41.:58:46.

maybe one or two. You will be in the company of film-makers whose

:58:46.:58:50.

overriding passion is to make a film that succeeds well enough to

:58:50.:58:54.

allow them to make another one. What they will have in common is a

:58:54.:58:59.

deep desire to tell stories, stories of today, yesterday and

:58:59.:59:03.

tomorrow. Stories about you and me. This year they have done it as well

:59:03.:59:07.

as it can be done. I congratulate everyone here and to those of you

:59:07.:59:13.

out there, keep watching, get writing, start shooting you sure

:59:13.:59:23.
:59:23.:59:25.

it's... That sounds of! Enough. -- start shooting your shorts. That

:59:25.:59:31.

sounds strange! Thank you and good night.

:59:31.:59:41.
:59:41.:59:42.

The awards presented earlier: Short film. Swimmer. I always thought the

:59:42.:59:46.

BAFTA at for short film should go to new talent, not old gits like us.

:59:46.:59:56.
:59:56.:59:56.

:59:56.:00:06.

beautifully. Thank you to Jo Wright and Keira Knightley for inspiring

:00:17.:00:25.

me. Make-up and hair. Miserables. Unfortunately, Lisa

:00:25.:00:28.

cannot be here tonight but we will make sure that she gets this.

:00:29.:00:38.

Animated film. The BAFTA goes to Brave. Thank you, BAFTA, for this

:00:40.:00:50.
:00:50.:00:53.

amazing and beautiful award. Sound. Les Miserables. Les Miserables was

:00:53.:00:57.

a massive collaborative effort and we are overjoyed that BAFTA has

:00:57.:01:03.

recognised the film for its sound. Thank you very much. Editing.

:01:03.:01:08.

It is unbelievable, thank you. Cinematographer Yves. A life of
