Last night’s British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards ceremony raised plenty of eyebrows, as Gravity apparently passed the so-called cultural test to qualify it as a British film so it could be named Outstanding British Film. A lot of people were strangely pissed about that decision, but the event was otherwise free of controversial decisions and wardrobe malfunctions, no matter how much Judi Dench teased us with her revealing gown.
Perhaps the biggest moment of the night came as Cate Blanchett accepted the award for Leading Actress (sorry, Dame Sandra Bullock) for Blue Jasmine, as she chose to use her acceptance speech to dedicate the win to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. I doubt that she’ll be alone in her praise of Hoffman with the Academy Awards only a few weeks away, but it was definitely a classy touch to an otherwise typical awards ceremony.
Somewhere, Drake can’t believe that Cate dissed him.
