    THE HURT LOCKER SWEEPS THE BAFTAs 2010

    It set to be a two horse race between The Hurt Locker and Avatar again. Well, the night at BAFTA Awards - the premier annual British films award ala Oscar style has sprung another advantage for the Iraq War theme flick over the environmental-sci-fi flick.

    The Hurt Locker and Avatar were locked at eight nominations a piece but it was the former who scooped the top prize. Ouch! That was another blow for the ex-husband as the ex-wife continue the recent form to scoop in the Best Director and Best Film awards.

    The acting categories were dominated by the British actor, Colin Firth and British actress, the young and rising Carey Mulligan. Purely a home ground luck! No surprises on the supporting role categories nevertheless.

    Other technical awards were again either The Hurt Locker or Avatar. It was however still difficult to determine if the momentum carried by The Hurt Locker will be really transformed into a real Best Picture win at the upcoming Academy Awards in a fortnight time. I still bet my money and hope for it to win.
