Anyone watch British Academy Film Awards tonight?
Brokeback Mountain was recognized as the best picture.

However the highlight for me...

Richard Attenborough presented the "Fellow of the British Academy Award" to David Putnam who was the producer for Bugsy Malone, Chariots of Fire, The Killing Fields, and many others.

His acceptance speech was such a touching tribute to the art form. He told a story of how a scene in a movie, The Sixth Sense, was so personally meaningful to him. His recounting is now one of my all time favorite TV moments.

Anyone else see the show on BBC America tonight?

It's the first time I've watched this award show which is much lower key than the US Academy Awards, but very sincere and touching.
