Did Graham Norton just die a death in the opening sequence or is it just me?

PenelopePortrait Sun 12-May-13 21:56:40

OP faced?? should be PO faced lol

DebsMorgan Sun 12-May-13 21:57:03

No, the ceremony was poncey and fake - goody bag was just accidentally forgotten blush.

DebsMorgan Sun 12-May-13 21:58:05

Penelope grin. I did start out trying to be all demure.

I would have had far too much to drink and tried to dance with someone from Enders I suspect. Not a good look for an overweight, middle aged Mumsnetter I suspect. I struggle to control myself on a school mums night out.wink

Ooh, just watched the Baftas, didn't know there was a thread.

Agree with all of the above, really.
Yup, GN did die a little, at first. But then recovered, and was lovely.
Loved Olivia C, who is of course the very definition of loveliness.
Loved what Romola Garai said about her vagina - good for her I say.
Loved Grayson Perry (and really, if you;ve not seen that series, so - it was amazing).
Loved Claire Balding, Mel and Sue (was Mel pissed?), Sheridan Smith, Helen McCrory, and the Homeland boys.

debs and fox I think these things always look fantastic and slick but maybe when you are there they are possibly a bit tedious? Although given half a chance I'd be there like a shot smile. I suspect I'd be more like fox describes though grin

As Catherine Tate's nan would say "what aload of old shit" eastenders. What are they having a laugh. Mel and sue make me extremely stabby. The Paralympics!!! No way, sorry it was dreadful compared to the main event. Claire balding, go away love you.re everywhere. Made in Chelsea over I'm a celeb.!! Whatever.

LemonPeculiarJones Sun 12-May-13 22:16:15

What did Romola Garai say about her vagina?!

HazeltheMcWitch Sun 12-May-13 22:34:09

"After having my baby, I had the misfortune of 23 stitches in my vagina. I didn't think I'd be laughing for a long time."

She then went on to say something about how she was introducing the BAFTA for best comedy, or similar.

It was the way she said VAGINA (rather than something ruder, or twee), that made it so shockingly funny, IMHO.

She was presenting a comedy award and pointed out that since she had recently had 23 stitches in her vagina (following the birth of her baby) it was probably unwise for her to laugh much at anything!

Charliefox Sun 12-May-13 22:38:37

That after having 27 stitches in it, she never thought she'd find anything funny again!

wintera Sun 12-May-13 22:39:54

Jesus, my sympathies, 23 is a lot!

Charliefox Sun 12-May-13 22:40:05

Ha! Funny how we all watched the same thing but reported it back in 3 different ways!

ohforfoxsake Sun 12-May-13 22:41:55

You could buy tickets for it this year, but it's the party I want to go

Dominated by lots of good women this year. Good to see.

LemonPeculiarJones Sun 12-May-13 22:43:49

Ha! She's brilliant grin Amazing woman.

I also adore Julia Davies. Olivia is so lovely, but Julia should have won that one. She's flipping extraordinary.

Choccyjules Sun 12-May-13 22:45:29

Chipstick, what was so dreadful about the paralympics? I was glad to be 'introduced' to a bunch of talented people who up to then weren't getting the recognition for their efforts; plus the Last Leg (is that right?) was fab!

invicta Sun 12-May-13 22:47:00

Did Ant and Dec not win this year?

teejwood Sun 12-May-13 22:50:56

I really enjoyed the BAFTA's. Much though I love Stephen Fry, I enjoyed Graham presenting tonight. The Tom Daley gag was really close to the bone but also very funny - and in fact quite close to some of the threads on here last summer!!

The thing that struck me this year is that there have been so many amazing dramas, documentaries and comedies over the past twelve months. For a comparatively small nation, we're bloody spoiled.

DP and I were genuinely torn about who we wanted to win in a lot of the categories.

Loved the great ladies tonight - national treasure aka Olivia C, Sheridan S, Lady Balding, Mel & Sue, Romola and her vag, Helen McCrory and Anne Marie Duff. Brilliant actresses/presenters.

Delighted to see Ben Wishaw win, but gutted for Sean Bean who was fantastic. And Peter Capaldi was robbed when Steve Coogan won.

And while we're at it, Girls winning the international award ahead of The Bridge??

That said, the C4 Paralympic team deserved their BAFTA for making the paralympics as unmissable as the Olympics imho. And that takes NOTHING away from the team who presented the Olympics - that also was fabulous but, let's face it, an easier sell for mass audiences.

squoosh Sun 12-May-13 22:57:50

Much preferred Graham Norton as a presenter (once he got past his intro nerves), Stephen Fry fancies himself to a yawnsome degree.

Personally I was delighted GoT beat the Olympics thingy.
Olivia Colman is a brilliant actress.
Peter Capaldi was robbed.
Ripper St was robbed.

Made in Chelsea and Alfie Moon cheapened the atmosphere a bit.

All in all qite a good show. Helen McCrory's 'tranny' reference was a bit ill judged!

squoosh Sun 12-May-13 22:58:22

Oh and loved Romola's vag gag!

squoosh Sun 12-May-13 22:59:21

Rebecca Hall should have won instead of Sheridan Smith. I don't think SS is a particularly talented actor.

LadyBeagleEyes Sun 12-May-13 23:02:14

So lovely to see Michael Palin get his award.
Like Terry Jones said, he really is the nicest man in the world.

waikikamookau Sun 12-May-13 23:06:00

only saw the second part , started to guess, if I haven't seen it, it had won.
love Olivia colman and delighted for her smile

wintera Sun 12-May-13 23:13:04

I love Olivia Coleman but can't help thinking that she got two this year because there was a media and twitter storm last year when she failed to be recognised for Tyrannosaur. This happens with awards ceremonies all the bleeding time! Like when Kate Winslet won two golden globes a few years ago because she didn't get the awards she deserved for Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. Then the powers that be over-compensate usually the year after. Wish they'd just get it right the first time.
