No-one likes a bad loser

Julie ChristieJulie Christie has gone down in my estimation somewhat after missing out on the Best Actress BAFTA last night.

The award went to Marion Cotillard for her role as Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose, even though Christie had been tipped to win for her portrayal of an Alzheimer’s sufferer in Away From Her.

When asked about missing out on the gong, Ms Christie pointedly said that the Baftas was “a night for the media to fill gaps”, intimating that they shouldn’t be taken seriously, because she didn’t win.

Clearly it’s a bit of a pisser to miss out on winning something, but you would have thought that someone with as much wisdom and experience as the 66-year-old Christie could take the decision with good grace.

It will be interesting to see her reaction if she misses out again at the Oscars!
