The Flickering Myth BAFTA Predictions

The Flickering Myth team predict the winners of the British Academy Film Awards….

It’s that magical time of year again where loads of famous people gather around to perpetuate how great they are. They don’t call ‘em celebrate-ories for nothing.

This Sunday plays host the the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, or, to those found of an acronym, the BAFTAs – hosted by Stephen Fry, one national institution being hosted by another. Flickering Myth will be on the red carpet on the day, uploading photos of as many nipple slips and drunk Michael Fassbenders as we can muster. We’ll also be at a special screening where we get the results entire minutes before BBC broadcasts them.
