The Baftas Make A Meal Of It

It takes place in at the Royal Opera House, and is televised on BBC1, so allowing the masses to see inside the building.

The do is run by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, billed as The Academy, a title so steeped in pomposity that the great and good are either forced to take it seriously as they wonder if an overweight actress is going to win a statuette of a metal face on a stick, or take it all as some grand joke.

The value of this event is put in context by the newspapers’ coverage which focuses almost exclusively on thin actresses in slinky dresses.

The Sun has Keira Knightley (grey Versace), Sienna Miller (backless black dress), Tilda Swinton (selection box chic) and Kate Hudson (Marbella gold).

More dresses in the Mail, including a shot of Jeffrey Archer’s former mistress Sally Farmiloe (blue puffball) and Myleene Klass (shower), both proving that there is an end to British talent, although it’s too late to reserve that table at the Happy Eater…
