The British Academy Awards (BAFTAs), hosted by Brit wit Stephen Frym=, took place Sunday at London's Royal Opera House; the edited version of the always entertaining show airs stateside at 5 pm Pacific on BBC America. The Brits have long had an impact on the Academy Awards--there's an overlap of several hundred members. Several Oscar contenders got a needed boost from wins, as the Best Picture race remains too close to call. Oscar voters got their paper ballots late last week and online voting opened on February 14. Completed ballots are due by 5 pm on Tuesday, February 25. This year, Helen Mirren and Peter Greenaway accepted achievement awards. 

Inevitably, BAFTA nominees with strong Brit participation have an advantage. Wily campaigner Harvey Weinstein's Best Picture Oscar contender "Philomena" was in a position to gain a boost on its home turf during prime Oscar voting season, and sure enough homeboy Coogan beat American John Ridley ("12 Years a Slave") for Adapted Screenplay. 

The winners were spread out among several films. Brit director Steve McQueen's "!2 Years a Slave" chalked two key wins, finally winning Best Film and Best Actor for Brit Chiwetel Ejiofor, as Michael Fassbender lost to Barkhad Abdi of "Captain Phillips" and Lupita Nyong'o lost to Jennifer Lawrence ("American Hustle") for Best Supporting Actress and to homeboy Will Poulter for the Rising Star Award. Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity," starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, which was filmed in England with a British crew, earned eleven BAFTA nominations and controversially led the contenders for Best British Film, which indeed it won, along with Best Director, Visual Effects, Sound, Cinematography and Original Film Score, for a total of six awards. "American Hustle" had three. As expected, Australian thespian Cate Blanchett won the Best Actress BAFTA; she is still the Oscar frontrunner for her role in "Blue Jasmine." She dedicated her award to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.
