Mick Jagger rocks the BAFTAs

Anybody else catch the BAFTAs last night? They’re the British equivalent of the Oscars and usually a kick, thanks to some unexpected presenters (i.e. Michael Sheen and David Frost, presenting together) and a good dose of British wit. Presenting the award for best picture, the perpetually awesome Mick Jagger cheerfully explained that he was part of a rock star/movie star exchange program, and that “tonight, Sir Ben Kingsley will be performing ‘Brown Sugar’ at the Grammys, Sir Anthony Hopkins is in the recording studio with Amy Winehouse, and Dame Judi Dench is gamely trashing hotel rooms somewhere in New York City.” And more . . .

Oh, and “Slumdog Millionaire” won pretty much every award imaginable, but you probably guessed that already.
