The cold and wet BAFTA awards got under way Sunday night in London. The big question for Oscar-watchers was whether "Argo" would keep its awards juggernaut rolling, even though "Lincoln," like the Oscars, has the most nominations, ten, including best film and best actor for Daniel Day-Lewis. Ben Affleck (up for three awards) and producer George Clooney made the schlep to London with that hope in mind. As host Stephen Fry noted, "I have a strong feeling I'm not the only actor who’s come here this evening with a beard."
