BAFTA Award Winners 2006

Brokeback Mountain wins 4, Memories of a Ghisa wins 3 and Crash win 2 BAFTA Awards.........

*From MediaGuardian:

BBC1's Bafta Film Awards coverage attracted just 3 million viewers and a 12% audience share between 9pm and 10pm, according to unofficial overnights.
When coverage resumed after the BBC1 10pm news, the remainder of the show drew 2.9 million viewers and a 16% audience share between 10.15pm and 11.20pm.

But the movie awards' ratings decline has been swift and precipitous - two years ago it attracted 5.7 million viewers and a 24% audience share.
Last year the ceremony moved from its normal Sunday night berth to Saturday evening, drawing 4.4 million viewers and a 20% audience share.

Also intesting to note that the Brits hardly won an award this year - apart from the British Film catagory and some actree that wasn't even born in the UK. But it's good that the Bafta's awarded films on their talent not on their country of origin.
