Many of you weren’t feeling her as a blonde. Emma Stone’s appearance at the BAFTAs should take care of that? Perhaps she’s softened it a little. Whatever it is, it’s amazing and it pops and I love that she’s into so much colour right now (remember the peachness at the Globes Full Story

Well who else would it be? He was the Best Actor. His costars were the Best Supporting Actors. His film was the Best Film. Colin Firth went home and they called her Your Majesty. Also, I just tried to spell that with a “G” and got told off by spellcheck and for that I blame Madonna. But I digress. Full Story

Written by Duana I’m dating myself here, but the very first thing I thought when I saw this dress was a long, crushed-velvet dress I used to wear in high school. Anyone? They came in the richest, most ‘muted’ jewel tones – and we wore them and felt so glam. Full Story

BAFTA Worst: Jennifer Lawrence

Cut off her head and, well, wouldn’t you expect that it was Blake Lively wearing this dress? Maybe Blake Lively wouldn’t have worn that choker. So 90s. But you get the idea, right? There’s so much titty action happening here, and I’m not sure Jennifer Lawrence means to be the titty action kind of girl, Mystique notwithstanding. Full Story

Written by Sarah Without all-American Armie Hammer and the style of Justin Timberlake to fall back on, Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield had to bring it to the BAFTAs to represent the cast of The Social Network. They didn’t disappoint. Full Story

BAFTA one shoulder: Annette Bening & Emma Watson

Two actresses – one a veteran, in the third act of her career, the other an ingénue, perhaps trying to terminate the first act of her career to begin a long, long second act that will see her emerge from underneath the heavy weight of a beloved literary character to embody a new roster of characters that will truly test her talent. Full Story

BAFTA Minnie Driver

February 14, 2011 01:02:54 Posted at February 14, 2011 01:02:54
Lainey Posted by Lainey

Written by Duana Prevailing wisdom says Minnie – who has had a series of ridiculously hard knocks in the romance department, but who works steadily if not flashily – can act. I don’t doubt it’s the case. I have yet to see Barney’s Version, mostly because to a person, everyone I’ve asked has said “I really want to finish (read: Start) the book first. Full Story

BAFTA Lisbeth: Noomi Rapace’s moment

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Written by Sarah The BAFTAs represent Noomi Rapace’s most prominent recognition for her work as Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium Trilogy, specifically The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. If you didn’t see the Swedish trilogy, Noomi is amazing. Full Story

BAFTA why are you there Jessica Alba?

The blue is lovely on her. Really, really sharp. It’s Versace. (The Jolie wears Versace a lot. I wish she’d chosen this for herself at the Golden Globes instead of looking like she’d just walked out of a polygamist sect.) I do love the double braid. A LOT. (Should I do this for the Oscars?) But that still doesn’t explain for me why Jessica Alba is at the BAFTAs. Full Story

BAFTA Worst Maroon Matron: Neve Campbell

Written by Duana Email exchange: Lainey: Unless - do you care about Neve Campbell? Because YIKES.Me: She is my girl crushLainey: Oh Christ. Yes, ‘another one’. The facts are as follows: Campbell is Canadian, and before she was Julia Salinger, she played a parallel-universe Brenda Walsh type (well, if Brenda was chilled) called Daisy on a show called Catwalk. Full Story

He was there to celebrate Harry Potter’s Outstanding British Contribution To Cinema. Good timing. The BAFTAs are sandwiched between the release of the Deathly Hallows Part 1, which of course happened in November, and Part 2 which is scheduled for July 15th. Is it July 15th yet? Among so many other things, I want to see how it plays out, when Ron and Hermione finally acknowledge their love. Full Story

BAFTA you can do better: Hailee Steinfeld

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Have been really, really impressed with Hailee Steinfeld’s awards season and premiere style choices. Her selection for the BAFTAs however fell a little short of standard. Not feeling the tricked out sheer top. Not feeling whatever it is that’s coming out of her waist. Reminds me of Mad Men and Christina Hendricks which, is fine for Hendricks, but maybe not a 14 year old who’s been doing a great job of looking 14 in an industry and on a circuit that ages people too quickly. Full Story

I really, really love the British star system. I wish Canada would encourage a star system. There are stars in Britain who are super, super, super famous there and no one knows who the f-ck they are outside their borders. Like those girls in Girls Aloud. I’m not actually sure how many Girls Aloud there are. Full Story
