With the lead-up to the Grammys this evening, some of you may have forgotten that across the pond another awards ceremony is currently being held: The 68th annual British Academy Film And Television Arts Awards. As something of a prelude to the Oscars, the BAFTAs are another occasion meant to celebrate true grandeur in film — and year after year, this independent charity gives kudos where kudos are deserved. Amongst this year's film nominees are Gone Girl, The Theory of Everything, Birdman, Boyhood, Big Eyes and more — and, of course, the women involved in the creation of these blockbuster beauties are being rightfully honored, too.
