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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


unabashed about celebrating what has been based simply magnificent


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


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


performances, scripts and productions that I have so admired


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


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


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


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


Unchained all benefiting from wholly unnecessary alphabetic


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


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


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


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


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


astonishing, not least seeing Helena Bonham Carter burst in to


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


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


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


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


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


emerged victorious when in the final scene he threw Her Majesty


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


lovingly craft another six films out of the slim volume Tolkien


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


her simply sublime performance in Silver Linings Playbook. Now,


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


such a wonderful year in film with than the ravishingly brilliant


young British singer-songwriter who has penned hits aplenty, as well as


appearing in St Trinian's and The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus. To


take us through this year in film, who better than the radiant Paloma

outstanding British film presented in honour of Alexander Korda. As


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


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


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


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


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

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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 97 seconds


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


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


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


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


organisation. I am famous for not joining organisations but having


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


when Argo turned out to be unnerved shred of the highest order.

morning and be in the movie business? I need you to make a fake


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


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


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


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


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


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


breathe. It only takes one second for them to spot you. It is about


normal people facing fear. If they stay here, they will be taken,


probably not alive. There is heroism and patriotism and it is an


escape story. There is an explosive world event when people's lives are


hanging in the balance and the clock is ticking. We do not have


the go-ahead from the President. tried to make something


entertaining and funny and scary and thrilling. This is what I do. I


get people out. I have never loved A film about a script that is


actually written and is never made, as if! But will Argo make it past


the ferocious BAFTA Revolutionary Guard and take off with the price?


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


will win best director, actor and actress, not to mention best film.


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


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


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


jumping with Felix Baumgartner, which is easier to say than


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


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


quite breathtaking, so please calculate wildly for Jennifer


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


and Leonardo DiCaprio and Sam Jackson and Kerry Washington for


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


a British writer, director or producer given in honour of the


great writer and producer Carl Foreman. He was the writer of the


immortal High Noon, a victim of the McCarthy era, he came to Britain,


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


that acceptance speech in vain, Scotland's finest folk singer


turned comedian turned A-list film star turned banjo player turned


hairstyle turned hobbit Corp. In fact, Scotland's only one of those,


the star Quartet, The Hobbit and Brave, the force of nature that is


I am overcome with joy. I am awash with bliss. At the very thought of


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


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


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


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


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


around the room, I might have some stiff competition. And the BAFTA...


We are The Muppets, and these are our biggest fans! James uses The


Muppets to bring them back to the big screen as Kermit and friends


reunite to save the studios from demolition. Start at the bottom and


work our way back up to the top! Experienced television documentary

Wow! Thank you so much. First, Samuel L Jackson, peeing next to


Samuel L Jackson and now this! I do not know... I don't think we ever


imagined that this amazing journey was going to lead us to be in this


room, doing some shaky public speaking in front of so many of our


heroes! There are so many people we should thank for this. Poppy


Dickson, our co-producer, who is somewhere in the room. We sent her


to taxes enough search of a story that did not want to be found, and


without her we probably would not have the film. -- Texas. Wally


Thompson, Katherine Butler at FilmFour. Tabitha Jackson. They


believed that we could mount this documentary and tell it like a


thriller, rather than a traditional documentary, and they believed in


two first-timers. And obviously, Andrew, our editor, and my very


dear friends and cinematographers, Eric and Linda, all of you, thank


you so very much, thank you very Well, now it is time to consider


the next of the five nominees vying for the best film supremacy. And


the simply mind-blowing achievement that is Life Of Pi, we are looking


at now. Once again... Yeah, what a piece of work. My feeble mind let


me down, and first hearing of it, I assumed it to be the latest


with fruit filled pastries. I suppose we will have to wait for


the director's cuts. It is of course a magical tale featuring,


among others, that great Russian And it contains some really special


special effects that are so startling, so well judged that they


give real life to the astounding, An old man at the table next to be


struck up a conversation, an amazing story. Where do we begin?


Life of by is the story of a 16- year-old boy who ends up on a


lifeboat with a tiger. -- Life Of Pi. As I was writing the book,


cinematic as it was in my mind, I thought it was completely on


filmable. You have to take those little symbols on the page and turn


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


unknowns about making this movie to begin with. It is about adventure,


survival, hope, wonder, but there is spirituality and faith, thinking

backstage is a man who was really excited to be here, although I


believe security has now escorted him from the building so I can


introduce our awards presenter, a damn fine actor, and the reason


there was gridlock around the cinemas during rush-hour. He is


also the reason we drove frantically back to the picture

performance in Silver Linings Playbook. Welcome Chris taco. --


It is great to be here to present the award for special visual

And the BAFTA is awarded to Life Of Wow. Thank you, BAFTA, this is


incredible. I am astounded by the other nominees city have this award


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


astounding and it was a dream job to work with you. Thank you so much.


For those of us that the visual effects, you mark us for our


science at times but we are artists and if you give us the opportunity


then we will make art with you. Now, tonight is amongst other


things a night of firsts. It's the first time Billy Connolly has kept


all of his clothes on in public. And Daniel Day-Lewis is speaking in


a British accent. But most remarkably of all, it is the very


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


Yes, after years and years we've finally caved in to his constant


barrage of phone calls begging us to be allowed to present an award


after a slot become available due to a last-minute drop out by David

you to ensure that your loins are well girded as I go all silly and

of us would be here. Thank you so The third film in contention for


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


called from two payphones, never using the same telephone number


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.

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


to be presenting the award for adapted screenplay. You certainly

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


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


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


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


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

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

time, and with films like Trainspotting and Slumdog

midfield general, Iniesta and Messi picked Paul Scholes of Manchester


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


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


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


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


incredible effort, determination and belief are why power industry


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


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


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


FilmFour, she has passionately championed new talent and actively


sought out challenging and controversial projects that were


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


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


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


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


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


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


thank-you to the extraordinary writers and visionary directors,


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


incredibly committed, they are clever, they are passionate and


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


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


built 30 years ago by some brilliant people, amongst them


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


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


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


nurturing talent, of doing things differently, of challenging


preconceptions, and taking those values to the community in this


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


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


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


it seems those values are what cherishing and working with even


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

my life. Abolishing slavery by constitutional provision settles

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


beginning, middle and end to an incredibly thrilling question of


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


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


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


This gang of talentless six rejected the amendment 10 months


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


relevant in the sense that understanding how we got to where


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


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


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


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


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


hook and crook to film not in the English language. To present it,

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


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


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


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


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


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

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


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


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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


responsibility, in that the director affects the work of


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


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


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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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


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


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


making originality as for his unswerving support of the British


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


defended the outside toilets. The resultant bloodshed, which was


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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