Watch: The BAFTA Award Winners Speeches

Last Sunday, the British Academy Film Awards were held at London’s Royal Opera House. There wasn’t much difference in their nominees and the one’s we have for the Oscars and, I’m thinking their winners and our eventual ones.

In the Leading Actor categories, Jean Dujardin won for The Artist and Meryl Streep won The Iron Lady.

In the Supporting Actor category, Christopher Plummer won for Beginners and Octavia Spencer for The Help.
