The BAFTA Winners Of 2007

‘This year’s Orange British Academy Film Awards were held today Sunday, February 11, 2007 at the Royal Opera House in London. The awards were sponsored for the tenth year running by Orange and will be broadcast on BBC America in the U.S. BBC presenter Jonathan Ross hosted the event for the first time.

This year marked the 60th anniversary of the BAFTAs, cementing their position within the awards calendar as the largest globally recognized international film awards ceremony outside of the United States. The BAFTAs has steadfastly remained an international rather than a purely British showcase.
