BAFTA Winners in 2009 (for films in 2008)

The results are in and it's a sweep for Slumdog Millionaire which picks up 7 awards including the prestigious Best Film, Director (Danny Boyle) and Adapted Screenplay (Simon Beaufoy). The Curious Case of Benjamin Button takes home 3 awards of the tech variety and the remaining titles took home one award each. I'm thrilled that Man on Wire was awarded Outstanding British Film. Acting awards went to Kate Winslet (Lead, The Reader), Penélope Cruz (Supporting, Vicky Cristina Barcelona), Mickey Rourke (Lead, The Wrestler) and Heath Ledger (Supporting, The Dark Knight). Congratulations to all the winners!
