One thought on “The BAFTAs 2014 – Nominations, Predictions & Winners

  1. It will be interesting to see the outcome of this. I was surprised The Hobbit wasn’t nominated for more awards but happy to see Seven Psychopaths up there. I think Les Mis should take the most awards and well deserved as well.
