Awards Watch: The BAFTAs '07

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has bestowed their Orange (?) British Academy Film Awards on the best of 2007, with Best Picture honors going to Atonement. However, just like the Golden Globes last month, they only saw fit to give the movie one other award (for production design).

The French Edith Piaf biopic La Vie en Rose landed the most awards with four, including Best Actress for Marion Cotillard. No Country for Old Men walked off with three BAFTAs, most notably Best Director for the Coen brothers and Supporting Actor for Javier Bardem.

Daniel Day-Lewis added another trophy to his case for There Will Be Blood, while Tilda Swinton picked up her first major win for Michael Clayton, thereby officially making the Supporting Actress race at the Oscars the toughest one to call -- four of the five nominees have each won major precursors.
