#OSCARS: “ARGO” WINS BEST PICTURE AT 2013 EE BAFTA AWARDS
The accolades continue to pour-in for Argo, which won top honours today including Best Picture and Best Director (Ben Affleck) at the EE BAFTA Awards, held at London’s Royal Opera House. Acclaimed Actor Stephen Fry filled hosting duties. The Drama also won Best Editing, further drawing attention to the Academy‘s snubbing of Affleck at this year’s forthcoming Oscars in the Directing category.
Winning British Film at the Awards this year was Skyfall, the latest in the James Bond Franchise. Composer Thomas Newman also won Original Music too for the connections of the Film.
Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables also took home an impressive four Awards including shoe-in Anne Hathaway for her work as Fantine. The Film also won Best Hair and Makeup, Production Design and Sound also.
Perhaps the biggest Shocker to come out of the EE BAFTA Awards was 85-year-old Actress Emmanuelle Riva‘s win for Amour, which also won Best ForeignFilm. The Category was seen widely as a match between Zero Dark Thirty‘s Jessica Chastain and Silver Linings Playbook‘s Jennifer Lawrence, further evincing what a wide-open affair this year’s Oscars really is. Not so surprisingly, Daniel Day-Lewis was honoured for his work in Lincoln.
Picking-up the EE BAFTA Rising Star Award this year is Juno Temple who is making a splash stateside in titles like Dirty Girl, Killer Joe and The Dark Knight Rises.
