you can follow me on twitter @berndt2_photo

If it's a big enough event (and the BAFTAs most assuredly are a big enough event), it gets a second journal - all monochrome, all widescreen, no distracting commentary and (often) a different set of photos. Emma Stone still gets the cover picture, though.
