The British film industry at the Oscars 2010.

As part of our mission to bring British cinema closer to enthusiasts and fans across India, we’ve decided to create a little blog-collage of how the British were represented in the Oscars from all over the web.

As you may know already, we sent a whole contingent of nominees out to LA, and we came back with two big wins – not quite as good as other years – but we are satisfied nonetheless.

Our British Oscar Winners this year:

Sandy Powell for costume design on The Young Victoria and Ray Beckett for sound editing on ‘The Hurt Locker’. Here’s a report on the winners from Times Online.

Those who were nominated

Here’s a video of (our favourite) Colin Firth on the red carpet.

Here’s a video snippet of Carey Mulligan at the post-oscars party.

This is an insightful interview with Dame Helen Mirren on her endearing and deeply moving role in The Last Station.

Barry Ackroyd the Cinematographer on ‘The Hurt Locker’ on winning his BAFTA (at least).

Nick Park on the competition for his Fifth Oscar for his work on Wallace and Gromit.

Nick Hornby, the writer, for his screenplay An Education - a video interview with ITN.

Armando Iannucci talking about his ‘rude’ oscar nomination in an LA hotel.

Jenny Shircore’s history the expert at royal makeup artistry.

We hope that’s given you enough to be going on – don’t forget you can see BAFTA award winning Colin Firth in Easy Virtue tomorrow night, Friday March the 12th and Monday March the 15th in the film ‘Genova’. Check out the schedule to find out which cinema is showing it – and buy tickets in person!

There’s also an opportunity to get up close and personal with the famously rude writer Armando Iannucci (In the Loop) on the 16th March via live webcast into your cinema. Ask him a question by  sending an SMS text message to 0091 98 2083 2445*
