BAFTA 2009: the best moments

09 February 2009

What with the dresses, the eyeliner analysis and Brangelina-spotting in our live Twitter feed from the 2009 BAFTAs, we almost missed the actual ceremony itself. Luckily for us – and you – some of our favourite bits have spilled on to the internet. Here's Grazia's rundown of the best bits of this year's BAFTAs. Not including Sharon Stone's singing...

Is Slumdog Millionaire the cutest movie ever? As if lovely, smiley Dev Patel and gorgeously glowing Frieda Pinto weren't enough, Danny Boyle's son stood up to shout ‘I love you, Dad' while he was accepting his best director gong. All together now: Aw...

Sorry Wossy, but Mick Jagger's speech was the comedy highlight of the night – particularly his joke about Brangelina and their brood starring in The Sound Of Music. There's still life in the old rocker yet.

We were thrilled that Mickey Rourke won best actor, and we adored his expletive-laden speech. And – call us perverse – but we're even a little excited about his extremely non-Hollywood, bleached, 1980s rock star hair.

That said, Sharon Stone's tears at Mickey Rourke's speech were too luvvie for words – so luvvie, in fact, that she made Kate Winslet look down to earth.

Speaking of which, Kate Winslet's red carpet comment that her tight Zac Posen dress was ‘very comfortable – and I think comfort is paramount' was pretty cringeworthy. Please Kate, stop trying to be ‘normal' – you're a star, it's fine, and we all know you're dressing for the world's media, not to slob out on the sofa. If you missed it watch it here - 19.44 minutes in.
