Edgar Wright bashes BAFTA

We were singing Edgar Wright's praises only 10 days ago but it seems our loving words weren't enough for him, he also wants affirmation from BAFTA.

According to Edgar's myspace blog he's not happy that Hot Fuzz missed out on a Best British Film nod for Hot Fuzz. And we think he's got a point. "Losing out on the Screenplay one was not a surprise or any kind of upset. Shaun was never nominated in that category and - hey - it's a cop stroke action stroke comedy film, which in any combination is not a genre usually deemed awards worthy.

But I have to say, it was somewhat ironic to be nudged out of Best British Film by Hollywood Action Blockbuster The Bourne Ultimatum. That's just rubbing salt in the wound.

I would have been more than fine with a period drama or chamber piece making the grade along with excellent British films like Control and This Is England, but Bourne? A British Film? That's just not cricket, surely?"

But he doesn't stop there - go to his blog to read the rest .
