Our forum posters predict who'll win the BAFTA Awards

February 7, 2009 |  7:37 am


"Sean Penn and Mickey Rourke aren't the slam-dunk front-runners to win the BAFTA," warns our forums moderator Darrin "DoubleD" Dortch. "Frank Langella and Dev Patel are definitely in this race, too."

However, HollywoodStar is among our forum posters who sticks out his neck to say that Penn will, indeed, win best actor at this Sunday's BAFTA Awards. He's probably right. Penn's the Oscar front-runner and BAFTA Awards have predicted all four of the Oscars' acting races correctly for the past two years.

But NovicMode pipes in: "Rourke and Winslet just won best actor and best actress, respectively, at the London Critics Awards. 'The Wrestler' won best picture. Could this be foreshadowing of the BAFTAs?" Follow more of the hubbub, suspense, chatter and dishing in the Gold Derby forums.

The BAFTA Awards will be bestowed Sunday, Feb. 8, at the Royal Opera House in London. They can be viewed on U.S. television on BBC America at 8 p.m. EST/ 5 p.m. PST. Here's a full list of nominees.
