2009 BAFTA Awards Winners List

Last night was all about the Grammys here in LA, and the rest of the U.S. for that matter. But right across the pond in London, all of the focus was on the BAFTA Awards. And although the event isn’t held in tinsel town, it’s still a major one, and drew in all the A-listers.

We’re talking Brad and Angelina, Daniel Craig, Mickey Rourke, Penelope Cruz, and Robert Downey Jr., just to name a few. The BAFTAs honor people in the film industry just as same as all the others, but you might be surprised at who won the big categories.
