WHAT is the point of having a major British film awards ceremony if some of the top stars don't even bother to turn-up? The BAFTA's on Sunday night was more like a snub than a celebration of all that is great in film. Little Miss Sunshine, shown without too much success at the Renoir cinema received a number of awards but no-one from the film was present in London. Apart from a few who had flown in for the ceremony and those that live in London (thankfully, Helen Mirren could attend along with Daniel Craig) none of the big guns from Hollywood were present even though many had been nominated for awards. Perhaps, the BAFTA's should become just a celebration of British film rather than trying to copy the Oscars. No-one outside Britain appears to care for them too much and the whole event in its present form appears to be pointless. And please next year ditch Jonathan Ross as well! P.S. What a fantastic goal David Beckham scored for Real Madrid on Saturday. Manager Fabio Capello was forced to play him (despite saying that Beckham would never play for the club ever again). He had to eat his words on Saturday and Becks certainly savoured the moment as Real Madrid cruised to victory. England manager Steve McLaren should take note. In Madrid Beckham is a hero and Capello may be out of a job. It is often said that no player is bigger than the club, in the case of Becks I am not too sure!
