Gary Oldman is up against the Oscar-tipped George Clooney (The Descendants) and Jean Dujardin (The Artist) in the Best Actor category. But, with a British voting body, there's a chance he might just snag a Bafta for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. William Hill recently increased the odds on Oldman from 4-1 to 9-4.

An excellent presentation of views and comments on the Bafta Award hopes. Recommend this post.

Ah Bafta's with a British flavour, which means it will be presented by a Foreign Muslim in a Burka who has recently undergone gender reassignment surgery on the NHS and get's more in benefits for his 27 children than any of these Actors even though they work as a banker on the side. Ahhh Britain.

I don't take interest with rich snobs winning awards.
If "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" gets a BAFTA award, it will be the greatest travesty there has ever been in the history of the BAFTA awards. This film direction was abysmal. The first 20 minutes of the film was ridiculous, there was no thread and no story, the settings were so absurd that had that been the environment in which our security services actually worked, the lighting was so bad, causing all the employee's great difficulty to see anything. There were daft 15 and 30 second scenes interjected without any purpose at all; such as the principal actor playing 'Smiley' swimming in a pool with his 'glasses' on. Far from persuading film goers and film 'lovers' to not go and see this film, I persuade everyone interested in film and film-making, to go and see this film. Experience for yourself, the worst 'spy film' there has ever been. The BBC's ALEC GUINNESS 'Smiley' version, puts this one to shame. Please BAFTA do not give a 'BAFTA' to anyone associated with this film. I actually paid SKY BOX OFFICE £3.49 to se this film. I was so disgusted, I should demand a refund. Gordon J Sheppard
