    Default Heartbreak for Keira Knightley and Julie Christie at the BAFTAs

    British actresses were sensationally snubbed at the Baftas in favour of an unknown French starlet.


    Julie Christie and Keira Knightley both lost out in the best actress category to Marion Cotillard, the 32-year-old star of La Vie En Rose about the life of the Parisian singer Edith Piaf.
    This is believed to be the first time a French actress has ever won best actress at the Baftas. Only Audrey Tautou had previously come close - when she was nominated for the comedy Amelie in 2002. Scroll down for more...

    Miss Christie, 66, had been bookies' favourite to win at the awards at the Royal Opera House, which are seen as Britain's Oscars. Miss Knightley, 22, was also hotely tipped for her part in wartime epic Atonement.
    But Miss Cotillard's shock victory now puts her in pole position to win a best actress Academy Award in two weeks' time when she will again be up against Miss Christie, who plays an Alzheimer's sufferer in Away From Her. Scroll down for more...

    At the recent Golden Globe awards, both Miss Cotillard and Miss Christie won best actress awards in separate film and musical categories.
    French-made film La Vie En Rose, named after one 40s singer Piaf's most famous hits, also became the big winner of the Baftas – the British Academy Film Awards – taking more awards than any other with four including those in the categories of music, costume design and make-up.
    Favourite Daniel Day-Lewis, 50, took best actor for playing an oil magnate in There Will Be Blood, beating James McAvoy and George Clooney. Scroll down for more...

    Keira Knightley at the bash, although Knightley failed to win the Best Actress award, Atonement won for Best Film



    Despite Atonement stars Knightley and McAvoy both coming away empty-handed, Tim Bevan's wartime epic did win best film.
    Atonement only picked up one other award – for production design – a disappointing statistic for the team who had picked up some 14 Bafta nominations.
    Despite being favourite to win best director, Atonement's Joe Wright also lost out to the Coen brothers who directed No Country for Old Men. Scroll down for more...

    In the best supporting actor category, Spanish actor Javier Bardem won for his part in No Country for Old Men about drugs running in south America.
    The best supporting actress award was however taken by a Brit. Tilda Swinton, 47, won for her role in the legal drama Michael Clayton. She is also up for a best actress Oscar for the part.
    This Is England, Mark Herbert's gritty depiction of the life of small group of British neo-Nazis growing up in the Thatcher era, won best British film. Juno, a comedy about teenage pregnancy, triumphed in the best original screenplay category. Scroll down for more...

    The low-budget film , which is up for an Oscar, has been a surprise hit in the US where it has taken some £50 million and has made an overnight star of the 20-year-old Canadian actress Ellen Page who is also nominated for an Oscar.
    The Diving Bell and The Butterfly, the true story of Elle editor Jean-Dominique Bauby who suffers a stroke and can only use her left eye, won best adapted screenplay.
    Anthony Hopkins was awarded the Academy Fellowship and Barry Wilkinson was hailed for his outstanding contribution for British film. Scroll down for more...

    Ratatouille won best animated film, while The Lives of Others won best non-English language film. Awards for cinematography and editing were picked up by No Country for Old Men and Bourne Ultimatum respectively.
    The Golden Compass won an award for visual effects. Shia Labeouf - who starred in Transformers – won the Orange rising star awards which was last year won by James McAvoy.
    Overall the night will have been seen as a disappointing one for the British film industry with just eight British wins across the 21 categories. But it also reflects the growth of the Baftas as an international awards ceremony.
    The Baftas moved forwards in the calendar to take some of the Oscars' thunder back in 2001 and has been steadily growing in importance since.
    The awards were held at London's Royal Opera House for the second time.
    Stars flooded a red carpet which ran the length of one side of Covent Garden causing large parts of central London to come to a standstill.
    Apart from the nominees, on the red carpet came Kevin Spacey, Sir Ian McKellen, Ricky Gervais, Kate Hudson, Orlando Bloom and Tom Wilkinson.

    Congrats to Marion! I didn't like La Vie en Rose, but there's no denying that Marion's performance deserves every award.

    I think Jéssica Biel is beautiful with that hair color. She looks older though.

    Heartbreak my ass!

    Marion was simply brilliant as The Môme, absolutely deserves any award she can get.
    I can't even put it on words, seriously, but I am so proud, happy ...god, so happy for my girl Marion.
    At last some recognition!


    I would have been happy for Julie Christie as well, of course, what a lady & what a beautiful performace.

    Kiera was horrible in Atonement. She kept speaking too fast and looked like a fish blowing bubbles every time she tried to say a line . Glad she didn't win but i was rooting for James McAvory to win.

    Keira is so ugly. Her career needs to end now.
