News, but not the serious kind
Accepting Brad Pitt’s award is Zippy!
Blog Guy, I’m really pumped for the Oscars – I love all the glamour and razzle-dazzle. Don’t the Brits have something like that, too? I’d love to see it.
They have BAFTA. You’d hate it. It’s not nearly as glitzy.
Really? How is it different?
The actors and actresses don’t really show up. They just send pictures, which are placed around the Royal Opera House to look like an audience.
I don’t believe that!
See for yourself. Here are Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Kate Winslet enjoying themselves at the event.
That’s just lame. What happens if Brad Pitt wins an award?
A trained chimp takes his poster up to the podium and waves it around.
But don’t they at least have presenters?
Sure, if you count sock puppets.
Place markers are arranged during preparations for the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) awards ceremony at the Royal Opera House in London February 7, 2009.
