The fact that the BAFTA bunch handed its Best Director prize to The Social Network director David Fincher this evening instead of to the King’s Speech helmer Tom Hooper — overcoming Hooper’s home court advantage — suggests that Fincher is all the more likely to win the Best Director Oscar on 2.27.

Otherwise The King’s Speech ran the table at the Orange British Academy Film Awards, taking 7 trophies including Best Film, Best British Film, Best Original Screenplay, and acting honors for Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter and some other prize.

TSN won for Best Film Editing, the Best Cinematography prize went to Roger Deakins‘ work on True Grit, Best Art Direction went to Inception and Best Costume Design was won by Alice in Wonderland.
