The truth is, you only really get the loser's hump about the winners if you think that they're crap, and tonight I get a real buzz out of nearly all the awards. Chuffed for jolly Michael O'Connor (best costumes, The Duchess), who assisted Lindy Hemming on Topsy-Turvy, and delighted that Benjamin Button only got technical awards! Wanted Mickey Rourke to win best actor (I voted for him) and, no disrespect to Kate and the other girls, I desperately miss Sally. I genuinely can't see how any of their performances are as original, creative, profound, witty or versatile as hers. But there you go.
