The BAFTA Awards: The Winners


Though they were understandably overshadowed by the Grammys, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts also held its annual awards ceremony on Sunday, in London. The reason we're paying attention, of course, is to get even more Oscar buzz. In case you weren't sure already, both Helen Mirren's and Forest Whitaker's chances are looking pretty sweet right now.
