Thoguhts on the BFCA winners

Not much to think about really. All the major awards went to the expected winners (the only one I missed was Jeff Bridges for Best Actor), with the slight exception of a surprise tie in Best Actress for the second consecutive year, this time between Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock.

The craft awards are a welcome addition to this group's slate of laurels, but I'm not sure what to make of their winners. Will they have any bearing on Oscar's choices at all? Can Avatar really sweep the crafts clean through, even in Cinematography and Editing? As for the other craft winners, decent choices, but The Young Victoria's win in Costume Design is a discouraging omen. Did all those critics really think it was the best, or are they trying to predict Oscar?

Golden Globe predictions later today.
