Piercing Ken Thoughts: It’s interesting to see a lot of the films that are popular over here getting the love on the other side of the pond. I read that the awards ceremony will air on February 10th and I promise to return with the full winners list of these BAFTA’s. If you feel like making some comments on who you’d like to see win a few of the categories, by all means please do so. Stay tuned for the forthcoming winners post and I’ll see you soon with other stuff before then.
