Sam Taylor-Wood and Aaron Johnson, who met while filming Nowhere Boy, attend the BAFTA Soho House Grey Goose after party at the Grosvenor House Hotel on February 21 in London. Nowhere Boy, a chronicle of the early life of John Lennon (played by Johnson), was nominated for four BAFTAs: Outstanding British Film, Best Supporting Actress (Anne-Marie Duff and Kristin Scott Thomas), and Best Debut by British Filmmaker, though it failed to win anything.

Nowhere Boy was also nominated for four London Film Critics Awards, including Breakthrough British Filmmaker and British Director of the Year. Aaron Johnson, for his part, has completed two projects: Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass and Hideo Nakata's Chat Room.

A Single Man earned Colin Firth the 2010 Best Actor BAFTA. Firth is also up for an Academy Award – the film's only nomination for the 2010 Oscars. Last year, Firth was chosen as the best actor at the 2009 Venice Film Festival.
Anna Kendrick, an Academy Award nominee for Jason Reitman's Up in the Air, attends the BAFTA Soho House Grey Goose after party at the Grosvenor House Hotel on February 21 in London. Kendrick has won a few US critics' awards, but the favorite to win in that category is Mo'Nique, who plays an abusive mother in Lee Daniels' Precious.

Mo'Nique, in fact, won the Best Supporting BAFTA Award. She wasn't present at the ceremony, so Lee Daniels accepted the award on her behalf. Kendrick and Up in the Air's Vera Farmiga were also in the running, and so was the film's star, George Clooney who lost out to Colin Firth in A Single Man.

Mickey Rourke was present at the British Academy's awards ceremony to present the best actress award that went to Carey Mulligan for Lone Scherfig's drama An Education. Last year, Rourke won the Best Actor BAFTA for The Wrestler. (Photo by Ian Gavan/Getty Images For Grey Goose.)
