2/24/02: Breaking news from Ananova: Lord of the Rings has won Best Film and four other awards as the biggest winner of the evening. (Okay, it's only 4 p.m. Digest time. Crazy Brits.)

In writing about the BAFTAs, the British equivalent of the Oscars (only, apparently, a lot quicker to get over with--it only took about two hours before Ananova started emailing news alerts to us), one of our news sources mentioned that these awards are second only to the Oscars in English-speaking importance. Not that we knew that, but still. And this is the first year that they've run before the Oscars--and keep in mind that, as one producer noted of the Golden Globes, "I mailed my ballot in the last day because it was so hard to choose." These awards may have some psychological impact on Oscar voters...
