Firth and Mulligan awarded BAFTAs

The British Academy Film Awards were presented last night at the Royal Opera House in London and for those in the US who did not catch it on BBC America, I will reveal that two Austen actors, Colin Firth (Pride and Prejudice 95) and Carey Mulligan (Northanger Abbey 07), won the lead actor awards for A Single Man and An Education respectively. This is a good indication that they will be front runners to The Academy Awards to be presented Sunday, March 7th, 2010 at the Kodac Theatre in Hollywood. Best of luck Colin and Carey. Here are their acceptance speeches. Wish I knew how to repair refrigerators. I'd gladly volunteer to fix Colin's without hesitation.

Cheers, Laurel Ann, Austenprose

OH, and the Guardian asks, "Could Colin Firth be the Great British Actor of our time?" Could? Nuff said!

LOL, I was gonna say the same. BAFTA.

As BBC reported afterwords, BAFTA winners are "a single man" and "an educated lady". Here are some red carpet scenes:

Colin Firth (A Single Man)

Carey Mulligan (An Education)

Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air)
