'Hurt Locker' tops BAFTA Awards with six wins
Following on the heels of an original screenplay prize at the Writers Guild of America awards, "The Hurt Locker" took an impressive six awards home from the 2010 Orange British Academy Film Awards, the British equivalent of the Oscars, on Sunday (Feb. 21).
The Iraq war drama won for best film, best director for Kathryn Bigelow, original screenplay for Mark Boal, cinematography, editing and sound.
"The Hurt Locker" has been on a roll lately. Besides the WGA, the Directors Guild of America also recognized Bigelow with their top prize. With the Oscars just around the corner, it bodes well for "The Hurt Locker."
Of interest to the "Twilight" fans is Kristen Stewart's win for the Orange Rising Star Award. Stewart, who plays Bella in the "Twilight" saga and stars in the Sundance hits "The Runaways" and "Welcome to the Rileys," beat out Carey Mulligan, Jesse Eisenberg, Nicholas Hoult and Tahar Rahim for the prize.
