Press Release Summary: BAFTA predictions in Radio Times magazine

Press Release Body: Radio Times film critic Andrew Collins predicts that The Lives
of Others will beat fellow contenders including No Country for Old Men and Atonement
to win the coveted Best Film category at the British Academy of Film and Television
Arts (BAFTA) Awards on Sunday 10th February.

In this week's Radio Times, Collins also tips:
- The Lives of Others will win the Best Original Screenplay award
- Atonement, starring Keira Knightley, will scoop the Best British Film award
- Ang Lee's Lust, Caution will win Best Foreign Language Film
- Joel and Ethan Coen will win Best Director for No Country for Old Men
- Daniel Day-Lewis will top the Best Actor category for his role in There Will Be Blood
- Julie Christie will win the Best Actress award for her performance in Away from Her
- Supporting actor and actress awards will go to Javier Bardem and Cate Blanchett

British actor and Full Monty star Tom Wilkinson also tells Radio Times:

"There have been some very bleak films this year that are BAFTA and Oscar
favourites, so maybe that reflects the sobriety of the times. There aren't enough
British films in the main nominations. It's almost all American films. Maybe what
it's saying is that there is no British film industry, which is sort of true."
