I really see Oscar night being very kind to SLP...
So Russells BAFTA win means SLP is gaining popularity even though best actress "lock" Jen Lawrence lost to Riva?
I don't think so. I love both of those upsets, but I really can't see a trend in them, especially from a European award, even if their voters somewhat overlap with Hollywood.

So everyone's thinking Russell now b/c it won Adapted Screenplay at the BAFTA's? Is that enough? I still feel like Spielberg has more name recognition / clout / and a Best Actor winner to win it (a la Polanski in 2002).
It would be awesome though to see SLP sweep some of the majors - including BP (!)
