BAFTA brews genteel bash

Minghella, Jackson, Watts among attendees

The Brit contingent gathered at the St. Regis Hotel Jan. 24 for BAFTA/LA’s traditional day-before tea party during Golden Globes weekend.

Board member John Houlton described the affair as “the classy calm before the storm.”

BAFTA/LA chair Gary Dartnall, meanwhile, took a genteel dig at the studios: “We’ve had to see so many films since we didn’t get the screeners, this is our first chance to relax and have a cup of tea.”
