‘The Artist’ Cleans Up 2012 BAFTAs With Seven Wins

Written by on February 12, 2012 

Although the Brits had better nominations than over here in the states for their celebration with the year in film, they still went with fairly predictable choices. Michel Hazanavicius’s The Artist led the night, taking home seven awards including Best Film, Director, Actor and Original Screenplay. Expect a similar pattern at the end of the month for the Academy Awards. Meryl Streep also took home Best Actress after seemingly strong contention with Viola Davis for The Help.  

It was great to see Senna take home Best Documentary and Best Film Editing, as well as Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy win Best Adapted Screenplay and Outstanding British Film. There was some surprise with The Skin I Live In beating out A Separation for Best Film Not In English. Check them all out below (winners in red) and we’ll see you for what is shaping up to be a dreadfully boring Oscar night.
