Kate and Slumdog Win Big at BAFTAs

The road to the Oscars is paved with other movie industry awards, including the BAFTA Awards, which presented today amid torrential London rain. Kate Winslet, wearing a black Zac Posen dress with sideswept hair, claimed the award for Best Actress. Mickey Rourke was named Best Actor for his performance in The Wrestler and swigged champagne straight from the bottle during post-show photo ops. Slumdog Millionaire won Best Film and six other awards; its young female lead, Freida Pinto, turned heads in a ruffled pink gown.
