2012 BAFTA Awards

It was quite a night for The Artist. It won seven awards, three of which were major awards. The film is looking very strong for the Academy Awards. It's also safe to say that if Chrisopher Plummer and Octavia Spencer do not win the best supporting actor and actress awards at the Oscars it will be a major upset.

My thoughts on the best and worst dressed celebrities:

Best dressed female - Michelle Williams looked elegant.

Best dressed male - A tie between George Clooney and Brad Pitt. Both looked spiffy in their suits and coats.

Best dressed couple - Colin Firth in a bow tie and his wife Livia in a smart, feminine suit.

Worst dressed celebrity - Helen Bonham Carter looked as ridiculous as she always does.
