I’m watching the Bafta Awards 2005 – and would like to nominate another, the Daisy award for most boring audience ever goes to this lot. They’re warming up a bit now but for the first hour I sat there giggling at Stephen Fry’s wonderful presentation as they sat stoney faced and unmoved. Was his microphone broken and they can’t hear him? Have they been refused passes to the bar?
J.uliette Lewis has just arrived. Is she on medication? Is Stephen Fry working her with his foot?
Quotes of the night – first from the fabulous Mr Fry:
I’d like to thank members of the audience for coming tonight [camera pans the audience]. There’s Cate Blanchett, on many people’s A lists. And there’s Clive Owen, who is on many people’s To Do lists.
And from David Heyman on receiving the award for most popular British film (Harry Potter and something or other, voted for by the public):
I’d like to thank Peter Jackson for taking a year off.
