23:04 The night’s not over till you”ve watched your friends dance to the BBC news music. Over and out.
23:00 “Gravity”, “Gravity”, “Gravity”
22:58 literally said as I came out of the cinema that I wanted Gravity to win sound
22:55 awed silence. Mirren is such a commanding speaker.
22:54 let’s hear it for the underappreciated people!
22:53 yeah, we all just raised our hands as per Helen Mirren’s instruction
22:45 Steve McQueen is making films for the right reason
22:41 At this point we’re just ogling actors
22:37 Maybe Sandra B there would be no Gravity, SHE IS GRAVITY
22:34 laughing at the bitter faces of directors who didn’t win – mainly Paul Greengrass
22:32 a lot of love for Gravity here – I think a bit too much actually. Though handling all that rigging is admirable
22:30 why do all these great actors suck at hiding the fact they’re reading off autocues?!
22:26 another correct guess for me! Also was predictable because Uma Thurman had a little panic about how to pronounce his name
22:23 wow, she is beautiful
22:21 where was James Gandolfini? – Beth pointed out he was omitted from the tributes
22:19 shamefully didn’t know Ruth Prawer Jhabvala had died this year, despite the fact that I’m doing coursework on some of the Merchant Ivory adaptations of Forster novels which she wrote screenplays for
22:18 Beth tears up…
22:16 that was cute
22:14 School buddy of Will Poulter, George Mackay loses with good grace
22:13 come on Lupita, you deserve this even more now that Jennifer Lawrence beat you for supporting actress!
22:12 Eddie, Leo already made that joke
22:09 he’s so right to make the point that, like slavery, the atrocities in Philomena affected many, not just one
22:08 Steve Coogan getting some decent exercise walking up to that podium
22:08 yes, well deserved coogan and pope!!
22:07 looking back a few hours I’m wondering why I thought Captain Philips would get this, it’s a really tough category
22:05 I gladly welcome Amy Adams
22:05 jokes are just not appropriate in the context of slavery
22:03 those of you in Oxford – 12 Years on at the UPP all next week if you haven’t managed to catch it yet. You should.
22:01 I’m really sad that Nebraska might not get any awards omg Stephen Fry why are you saying this, and why did it get edited into the broadcast!!
22:00 We’re all agreed that Gravity shouldn’t have won that (original screenplay). I wasn’t feeling American Hustle either
21:57 Yes, someone who can actually present with interest and charisma, Caesar Flickerman! erm, I mean Stanley Tucci
21:55 Apologies, my ‘informed’ opinions do not extend to Peter Greenaway
21:48 the female bladder is protesting but I will not give in
21:47 such a shame J-Law isn’t here…I’m sure she would have been hilarious. David O should have tripped on the stairs in tribute
21:46 mixed opinions on that…I REALLY love Jennifer Lawrence, but she did win just last year. Still, only Lupita upstaged her in that category, and she did get the SAG
21:45 I’m thinking Lupita
21:43 Me too LEO!
21:40 Cinematography – NEBRASKA PLEASE – the black and white is so justified ah shit
21:39 Yes Mr Fry, as I keep telling people it is time to build an ark! Darren Aronofsky is trying to warn us
21:37 I used to think I didn’t like Tom Hanks but I’ve changed my mind this year. He made me laugh in Saving Mr Banks (though I was totally on Thompson’s side) and is great in Apollo 13
21:36 laughing at Fry’s jokes out of obligation. Saving Mr Hanks, really?
21:35 loving how genuine the speeches are this year. none of that ‘I so wasn’t expecting this’ shit
21:33 ah that’s a nice surprise. But must see Captain Philips
21:32 come on fass
21:31 Dench has cheered up now that Thompson’s on stage
21:29 Ellie: “when they’re new they’re so cute”
21:28 We’re so excited in Dale common room that we just gossed over the results of that one… Kelly + Victor looks really cute though
21:26 Thanks a lot Total Film for spoiling the Best Film winner for me. You will be swiftly unfollowed. Though I did guess correctly…again
21:23 Bradley Cooper less than stunning for most of American Hustle imho… apart from the uncomfortable forceful almost sex scene with Amy Adams
21:22 Really hope American Hustle gets make up and hair. Anything else would be a crime
21:20 Frozen wins – another correct guess for me! Should have placed bets
21:19 I don’t know who these people are but they sound so scripted! and bored
21:18 I’ve only seen Monsters U in this category so can’t really judge – loved it though
21:17 Is it me or does David Heyman look like Daniel Day Lewis?
21:16 SANDY B WHERE ARE YOU
21:15 Gravity wins Outstanding British Film – as I predicted. Commiserations Stephen Frears, I was rooting for you
21:15 I find Idris Elba’s Mandela accent distracting tbh
21:12 It’s Oprah! Hoping for a win for Philomena in Outstanding British Film
21:11 Fry’s struggling with all these foreign names… but wouldn’t we all – Chiwe – erm?
21:09 Who do you think will win the EE rising star award?
21:08 loving the velvet
21:08 cue the montage
21:07 I LOVE EMMA THOMPSON. I hope Meryl’s there so they can have a catfight
21:06 Hanks does not look pleased!
21:03 TBH, I don’t want to lick any of them
21:02 Hey Stephen Fry. And beard.
21:01 I don’t care what they’re wearing! Tell me who’s won! I’ve resisted looking it up for the last 2 hours.
20:59 Watching with ma pal Beth White, check out her “live” tweets (ceremony real time) @Screenoxide and @bethanywhite
20:58 So excited I forgot how to switch the TV on!
20:49 I’ve posted predictions to some of the bigger categories in my previous post, http://scenealotoffilms.wordpress.com/2014/02/16/pre-bafta-blog-predictions-and-my-picks/. You might want to check it out before the broadcast begins.
