Other winners at the BAFTA awards were Kate Winslet and Mickey Rourke. Both were expected to win and I don't think either win changes much. Winslet should still be the frontrunner for Actress. I still feel like Rourke will lose to Penn. Milk was not well represented by the British Academy, which is understandable. Most people figured Penn would lose this. Penn has won the more important award this awards season, which is the SAG. Voters of the Globes and BAFTA don't vote for the Oscars.
Penelope Cruz and Heath Ledger also won, which should were also not huge surprises. Ledger has won everything. Cruz was in a film shot in Europe, so I figured that would give her the edge there. I do think that win will help her Oscar campaign in the wide open Supporting Actress category. I see that race between her and Viola Davis.
Oh, and Danny Boyle won again. N0 surprise as he should also cruise to the Oscar.
With the BAFTA awards done that leave only one award show left: The Oscars. Only two weeks away.
