The Artist won lots of BAFTAs

"Solo! Hay lapa no ya, Solo! Boonowa tweepi, ha, ha."


The BAFTAs, aka the British Oscars (The Oscours, as I like to call them), held their awards ceremony last night, and the big story was that The Artist only took home six of the 11 awards it was nominated for. What a sad night it must have been for its make-up artists and production designers. Meanwhile, Meryl Streep took home Best Actress honors for The Iron Lady, proving that even British people are impressed by the ability to do a British accent.

Elsewhere, Adam Deacon took home the Orange Wednesdays Rising Star Award, which is apparently an arbitrary assortment of words presented to a British citizen chosen at random, by drawing names out of a Bobby’s hat. The names are written on the sides of fags, which is of course Cockney-rhyming slang for “Pifflequags”, which is a type of rodent. Why are the Bobbies’ hats so full of rodents? Tradition, mostly. (Full list of winners and nominees after the jump):
