Accolades for CalArtians Continue at BAFTAs

The film awards season continued this weekend in London with The British Academy of Film and Television Arts handing out its BAFTA awards. A number of CalArtians were again included in the international mix of nominees and winners. Kudos to the following alumni:

Chris Innis (Film/Video MFA 91) and her husband Bob Murawski won Best Editing honors for The Hurt Locker, which also took the top film prize. (See the video above for their reaction to winning their award.)

Pete Docter (Film/Video BFA 90) picked up awards for Best Animated Film for Up, beating out fellow CalArtian Henry Selick’s Coraline (Film/Video MFA 77). Docter was a double winner across the pond also collecting the BAFTA award for Original Screenplay with Bob Peterson.
