Bafta Awards 2010

The British Academy Film Awards of 2010 has come to an end. The outright winner at Londons’ Bafta awards was Cameron’s ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow with the film The Hurt Locker.

The film of a US army bomb disposal men in post-invasion Iraq, won six awards including best film, editing, cinematography, director, original screenplay and sound.

On the other hand, Cameron’s Avatar won only two Bafta awards, even though has taken more money at the box office than any other film in the history of cinema.

The best actor award was given to Colin Firth for the film A Single Man and the best actress award to Carey Mulligan for the An Education.
