Brits party post BAFTAs

Yanks join in Blighty party

Following the traditionally rain-soaked British Academy Film Awards, spirits on Sunday remained high at the post-kudofest bash — and not solely due to the Grey Goose sponsorship.

Guests celebrated late into the night at London’s Grosvenor House, including nominees Jesse Eisenberg, Darren Aronofsky and Amy Adams, who had all hopped across the pond for the awards.

Following dinner, guests sipped vodka cocktails and champagne, with “King’s Speech” winners Colin Firth and Tom Hooper celebrating in a labyrinth of private rooms off the main party.

The supporting actress winner, Helena Bonham Carter, justified her longer-than-average acceptance speech, explaining that movies are, as always, the collaborative work of lots of talent.

Her award’s presenter, James McAvoy, earlier in the evening had wanted recognition for his personal collaboration in her win, joking to the actress: “Are you glad I presented it? That was a really important part of it all, otherwise you wouldn’t have got it.”

Bonham Carter, after a little thought, acknowledged McAvoy’s direct involvement: “Exactly — in fact, he misread it, it said Amy Adams!” –
