Piercing Ken Thoughts: So what did you think of the winners list for the BAFTA’s? I must admit that I didn’t manage to watch the broadcast as I really can’t even think of who might have aired them. I was happy to find a couple of favorite releases from last year winning out and as I close this up I wonder what you thought of the end results. Did your favorites win out big or were they unfairly beaten by something you felt wasn’t as deserving? It sure does seem like “The Favourite” was a popular one last year with “7” awards. You can chime in your joyous celebrations or share your ire (within reason for a wide age rang audience of course) down below in the comments section. I’ll be back to share the full winners of the Grammy Awards which broadcast tonight unless something else meriting a post surfaces between now and then. Cheers.
