Batman Wins Bafta!

The British Academy¬† of Film & Television Arts awards (or “Baftas”) are like the UK’s Oscars & Emmy’s combined, at least as far as this American who’s never been across the pond can surmise. Something I was unaware of was that in addition to Baftas for Best Film or Best Actress in a Television Series, there’s an entire wing of Baftas devoted to video games. Pretty cool.

Here’s who won what for what at the 2010 Baftas:

  • Best Game: Arkham Asylum
  • Best Gameplay: Arkham Asylum
  • Gamer’s Choice: Call of Dury: Modern Warfare 2
  • Best Action – Uncharted 2
  • Best Family and Social – Wii Sports Resort
  • Best Sports – Fifa 10
  • Best Story and Character – Uncharted 2
  • Best Strategy – Empire: Total War
  • Best Best use of Audio – Uncharted 2
  • Best New Talent – Shrunk
  • Best Multiplayer – Left 4 Dead 2
  • Best Original Score – Uncharted 2
  • Best Handheld – LittleBigPlanet
  • Best Artistic Achievement – Flower
  • Best Use of Online – Fifa 10

I've written for National Lampoon & Cracked Magazine, been featured on NPR's "Marketplace", and had a pilot screen at the New York Television Festival. I've performed stand-up all over NY, Boston & LA. I love Babylon 5, yelling at the TV with my dad and naps.
