The British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) were handed out today in a spectacular ceremony at London's Royal Opera House. The BAFTAs are considered the British counterpart to the Academy Awards here in the U.S., as well as an accurate bellwether.

If you want to watch the awards on TV they will be broadcast on tape on BBC America at 8:00 PM Eastern/7:30 PM Pacific time in the US, but check your local listings because some providers vary.
