Why the BAFTAs will be ace this year

GLITZY!The British Academy Film Awards, BBC1, 10pm

» With the writers' strike not yet having reached a conclusion, it is possible (unlikely, but possible) that the Oscars will not go ahead, thus making this THE film industry ceremony to be at in 2008.
» We liked a lot of the films we saw in 2007.
» Jonathan Ross is presenting, and he always does this kind of thing well.
» Being British, you get a better (or at least more British, older, less airbrushed) class of celebrity at this event than at the American ceremonies.
» Someone British will win something. Which will help us feel all self-satisfied and provide the papers with someone to coo over for a few days.
» The acceptance speeches are usually shorter than at the Oscars.
» We like everything we have seen that has been nominated (although we haven't seen everything on the lists) so we don't mind who or what wins.
» It has the Rising Star award that always features people who have had careers for several years, giving the audience something to complain at the screen about and thus feel superior.
» You can play 'spot the celebrity' bingo. First to spot Dame Judi Dench, Dame Helen Mirren, Dame Myleene Klass, Dame John Barrowman and Dame Jane Asher wins.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
