Bafta's inclusion of films such as Adaptation and Frida, which have not yet gone on public release in Britain but were nominated for awards this year, has added fuel to the argument that the event is increasingly becoming an extended PR exercise.

In conclusion, although there is a good evidence basis to support adjusted-dose warfarin as the most effective strategy for the prevention of stroke in AF, there are limitations when applying these data to older people (75 years or over) and a trial focusing on this age group is needed [19].
The primary aim of BAFTA is to compare the incidence of fatal and non-fatal disabling stroke (ischaemic or haemorrhagic) and systemic embolism in older patients with AF who are treated with either adjusted dose warfarin or aspirin.
BAFTA is a primary-care based, pragmatic randomised controlled trial where older people (aged 75 years or over) with AF are randomised to receive either warfarin or aspirin.

 The BAFTA's, 1999
The BAFTA's are the British equivalent of the American Academy Awards, the much more renowned Oscars, and usually offset the, not uncommon, prejudices which the American's show towards their own, home grown, block-busting, Tinsel Town manufactured, so-called gems.
If the BAFTA's were solely about British films then perhaps the result couldn't be severely criticised; there aren't that many British candidates in the running anyway although last year was better than many others (Elizabeth, Little Voice, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Shakespeare In Love and Velvet Goldmine).
For self indulgent back-slapping, the BAFTA voters have excelled themselves; their patriotic bigotry has shone through.
