Les Misérables wins four BAFTAs

by Naman Ramachandran

11/02/2013 - Ben Affleck's scoops three awards while Michael Haneke's Amour goes home with two

Les Misérables wins four BAFTAs

In a year where honours were evenly distributed, Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables took home four BAFTAs at the British Academy Film Awards, for Production Design, Sound, Make Up & Hair and Supporting Actress for Anne Hathaway (photo). Ben Affleck won Director for Argo, which also won Best Film and for editing. While there was no surprise at Daniel Day-Lewis duly winning his Leading Actor award for Lincoln, there certainly was unbridled delight at veteran actress Emmanuelle Riva winning Leading Actress for Michael Haneke’s Amour [+see also:

Sam Mendes’ Skyfall won Outstanding British Film. In his acceptance speech, producer Michael G. Wilson said, “Skyfall was conceived 60 years ago when Ian Fleming wrote the first James Bond novel.  It was born 50 years ago, when Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman produced the first film.  Since then it has been nurtured by a whole host of directors, actors and crew, so that today James Bond is loved throughout the world.  It is on behalf of those filmmakers that Barbara Broccoli and I accept this award.”

Mendes added, “There are two people I want to say a special thank you to.  I want to say thank you to the person around whom we built this movie and without whom the movie could not happen, and that of course is Daniel Craig.  For his bravery and his brilliance and his friendship and his sheer bloody mindedness.  And last, but by no means least, I want to say thank you to someone who's not here, to the great Ian Fleming who, 60 years ago, almost to the day, sat down and wrote: “He was a secret agent and still alive, thanks to his exact attention to the detail of his profession.” Here’s to the next 50 years, thank you very much.”
