    Should a film that's a remake be allowed to be nominated for Best Film?

    Craig could be in with a chance for best actor.

    Aside from that, I hope United 93 and The History Boys do well

    I hope Casino Royale does well, and it's got that mmmm-errr factor against United 93, beinga true story about a subject so tender. What will win more as a BAFTA? Fictional movie or factual movie?

    Plus I think The Departed is there just for Scorsese, I don't feel it actually deserves anything. And shock to see no nominations for Clint's movie 'Flags Of Our Fathers'.

    And Daniel Craig is also going to be handing out Best Actor award at the Oscars in February.


    Groovy.

    are any of the young fellas on here familiar with the term 'mercy ***'?
    cos that's what this is... it's just another establishment back-slapping exercise.
    even if i was a fan of the latest bond outing,i'd still regard this as such.
    we'll see how well it does in the oscars.
    not so good,i should imagine.
    ...
    and the song quote from the top of the thread... not from this film,was it?
    to me,that says it all.
    sorry to be so negative,please don't hate me.

    Nope...that song was 'Nobody Does It Better', performed by Carly Simon in the 1977 Roger Moore James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me.


    Although for years, when a James Bond actor/actress/movie/event is seen to do so well, this piece of music and lyrics are played, eg: A Tribute To Desmond Llewelyn.

    Felt it was appropriate for the back-slapping BAFTAs, y'know.
