The British Academy: And the Award Goes to…

We’ve been rolling out the red carpet for weeks now anticipating Sunday night’s Academy Awards ceremony. So, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank Mom and Dad, our awesome cat Oliver, the fans who made it happen, and The British Academy of Film and Television Arts, the body behind the Bafta Awards.

The British Academy calls 195 Piccadilly in central London home. We love this particular academy because you don’t have to pay celeb prices to take part in their year round paparazzi-worthy events. For between £5 and £10, you can attend film premieres, pick the brain of The Guardian‘s film critic, or spend the night with César Charlone, who was nominated for an Oscar for City of God.

Heck, if you’re free tomorrow night and you happen to be zipping through W1J 9LN, we recommend the exclusive screening of the winners and nominees of the Bafta Orange Award for short and animated films.

Let’s face it. We hate to pay A-list prices like everyone else, but we sure love feeling all Hollywood and stuff.

    Ah Piccadilly. . . such fond memories. Those cupcakes, friend. Awesome.

    This sounds right up our alley. We hope to get back there sometime in the very near future.
