Royal flush at BAFTA

From the Associated Press: "A gracious monarch and a charismatic dictator took the top prizes Sunday at the British Academy Film Awards."

BTW: At this point, Helen Mirren is such a favorite in every awards competition that even her competitors are starting to joke about it. As the AP reports: "I'm a betting woman, so I'll put money on Helen," [Judi]Dench said before the ceremony. "I'm just here for the show."

I like Dame Judi's other recently famous quote better. When asked about catching a glimpse of Daniel Craig in the nude while they were filming the James Bond movie, she reportedly answered, "It's a monster!"
