James Bond Flops At Baftas

JAMES BOND movie CASINO ROYALE failed to live up to hype at the BAFTAs, winning just one of the nine awards it was nominated for. Despite nods in the Best British Film category and for star DANIEL CRAIG in the Best Actor category, the latest installment in the superspy franchise had to settle for Best Sound. But Craig insists it was an achievement just to be nominated - particularly in a role rarely recognised by awards. Speaking on his way to the ceremony in London, the actor said, "Win or lose, it's going to be a good night." There was some consolation for the film's cast and crew - Casino Royale starlet EVA GREEN lifted the Orange Rising Star award, as voted by the British public.
