Yeah, these don't get a picture either.

Best Picture
The Artist (Thomas Langmann)
And so it continues...

Best Director
Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist)
And again...

Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role
Jean Dujardin (The Artist)
I'm actually quite surprised that Gary Oldman didn't win here, and a little disappointed.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role
Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady)
As expected, but this one remains as open as ever.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role
Christopher Plummer (Beginners)
He can't lose.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role
Octavia Spencer (The Help)
Neither can she.

Best Original Screenplay
Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist)
Something tells me he'll win the Oscar too. If the WGA vote for him, he'll win the Oscar in this category. Does Woody need another?

Best Adapted Screenplay
Bridget O’Connor and Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy)

Best Cinematography
Guillaume Schiffman (The Artist)

Best Editing
Chris King and Gregers Sall (Senna)

Best Production Design
Dante Ferretti and Francesca Lo Schiavo (Hugo)

Best Costume Design
Mark Bridges (The Artist)

Best Sound
Tom Fleischman, Eugene Gearty, John Midgley and Philip Stockton (Hugo)
So many thought Harry Potter would win this. I'm glad it didn't.

Best Special Visual Effects
Tim Burke, Greg Butler, John Richardson and David Vickery (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2)
Harry Potter did win this, though, and it did not deserve it.

Best Make-Up
Marese Langan (The Iron Lady)
Good make-up indeed.

Best Original Music
Ludovic Bource (The Artist)

Best Animated Film
Rango (Gore Verbinski)

Best Documentary
Senna (Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, James Gay-Rees, Asif Kapadia, Manish Pandey)

Best Film Not in the English Language
The Skin I Live In (Agustin Almodóvar, Pedro Almodóvar)

Best British Film
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Tomas Alfredson, Eric Bevan, Eric Fellner, Bridget O’Connor, Robyn Slovo, Peter Straughan)
It is though.

Best Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer
Paddy Considine and Diarmid Scrimshaw (Tyrannosaur)

Best Short Animation
A Morning Stroll (Sue Goffe, Grant Orchard)
Of course I haven't seen it.

Best Short Film
Pitch Black Heist (John MacLean, Gerardine O’Flynn)
Haven't seen this either. Been meaning to though. I'd see The Skin I Live In again if it had Michael Fassbender in it.

The Orange Wednesdays Rising Star Award
Adam Deacon
Well it makes sense doesn't it? If Jessica Chastain can't get nominated here, surely the least deserving nominee ought to win. Chavs FTW.

Outstanding Contribution to British Film
John Hurt
