I'll be watching it live on TV, but I'll definitely be on here at the same time! :p

Does anyone know what award he'll be presenting?

S4M985 said...

oh my hes presenting? How did i not know that... i just thought he was going to be there and we'd maybe get a quick glance as they panned the audience!
*tries to work out wat 9.00 pm GMT time is here*

Dude i need a laptop! I can't be in two paces at once!

cina said...

@Sam: I'm 99% sure he'll be presenting something, since he actually won last year. I hardly think he would go just to attend, now that he's busy filming in Morocco at the moment.
But hey - I could be wrong! (wouldn't be the first time... lol! )

Aaaah I'm so annoyed! I was going to make the treacherous journey from Southampton to London to be in the crowd on the red carpet but you have to que for a wrist band from 7am and there was no way I was gonna get there on time for that so I will have to watch from home! I wanted to be right there on the frontline to catch a glimpse of Jakey in the flesh but alas it was not meant to be! Maybe I'm not dedicated enough but whats a girl to do when she goes out drinking on a saturday night and is too hungover to sit on a train for hours...wow mini rant there folks sorry about that! Anyways cant wait to see Jake in a tux cos he sure wears it well!!

heddaparsons said...

Cina, is right. I don't think he would take time out from filming in Morocco to just sit in the audience. He will be presenting an award I guarantee!!

DC forum reports agents successfully in place...in the BAFTA "pen." I think Jake will be SO pleased when all the others are screaming for Daniel Craig, there will be screams for Jake as well.He will prolly forego the experience of presenting so he can be out in the rainy chill with his loyal and adoring fans. They will become BFFs and he will take them back to Morocco with him...Morocco can be lonely without the ones who love you....

Mmh, perhaps you should overthink your priorities...*lol*

Message from Kate and the two Dave Cullen-girls:
" "We're in. Right opposite where John Barrowman is interviewing"

I really hope the weather in London is better than here - whole day raining and freezing cold...

City Girl said...

I afraid I don't have the BBC station on my cable system so I'll have to tune in to the JakeWatch blog for my step by step account of the BAFTA.

I need to make sure I have the correct time. It's going to air at 9:00 PM in Great Britian,what time would that be in New York, New York? I know we're behind time, but how many hours exactly? Six or seven?

Oh man, I wish I could see how sexy he's going to look. I guess I'll have to wait for pictures.

Thanks guys!!!!!!!!!

Well, for their sake I truly hope Jake does the red carpet tonight. He's been skipping that A LOT lately, and that makes me a little worried for Kate and the others waiting there... :(
Please don't disappoint them Jake!

cina said...

Oh, and - Billie Piper?! LOL!!

Number Six said...

He went to the Jake Watch pre-BAFTA party. Did I not mention it?

This is N6 btw, we're just currently having a training programme.

Carla said...

Is everybody watching the Red Carpet??

I keep my fingers crossed that Jake will do the Red Carpet...

If he presents the Bafta to the "Best supporting actress" - it could be a get-together of the two "Effies"....

get real said...

Thanks, Carla!

cina said...

Love'ya Carla! :D

kokodee said...

cina said...

get real said...

OMG, that is so cool Kokodee! But it is not on the internet feed. :(

I wanna see Jake and Sir Ian and Helen!

kokodee said...

I'm watching E's coverage on Sky.
Ruby reminded jake that he promised to pee on her leg last year or something, and he turned to Ian mckellan and was like 'my leg just got stung by some jelly fish..lol!

cina said...

Oh WHY don't I have Sky!!! :(

kokodee said...

John Barrowman (from Torchwood)'Jake and Daniel?(craig)wooot!!
Haha, that's cute.

Anonymous said...

Jake was on Sky News's coverage. I think he's presenting best actress. The sound wasn't too great...

cina said...

DAMN! I just discovered that I Sky News were reporting from the red carpet, which means I just missed Jake! I can't believe this!!

Anonymous said...

Sky news - The interviews go James McAvoy, Judi Dench and then Jake.

cina said...

I just saw Jake's interview on Sky - he looked great! Unfortunately the picture kept freezing up on me - highly annoying. But anyway I got to see him and he looked wonderful and seemd to be in good spirit!

atk said...

Oh, I saw it! He looked good, but was not very keen on answering questions it seemed.

"What are you doing right now?"

"A movie?" Smartass! :)

Anonymous said...

Jake's presenting Best Actress then?

cina said...

Yes he is. :)

atk said...

Apparantly to Kate Winslet they talked on the phone last night and she told him to practice that the BAFTA goes to Helen Mirren. LOL

number six said...

I can't believe he's not seen The Queen yet! The urchin!

On the other hand, at least he likes to be screamed at.

phoebe said...

Oh I'm going to miss out on all the fun.. AGAIN! *pouts*

Thank God for JW and live blogging though! :D

atk said...

Okay, I saw it again. I got it not quite right I guess. My head is a mess. :)

phoebe said...

Oh my, I just saw the pics of Jake..

*faints*

The DC Forum agents (Lashers!) made contact with The Precious...The Sex....The Beautiful One....according to preliminary reports, there was touching...there was staring...there was even an autograph...there are no reports of breathing, however...and it seems Jake became mildly startled when the agents began to levitate...an aide whisked him away to his next interview, but he couldn't get their cries of distress out of his mind...he likes it when they scream. I suspect they will be debriefed as soon as they regain their power to speak...which may take some time. Right now, they are being given therapy in how to breathe.

Brian Erickson said...

Grr. It's not being broadcasted in America. God Jake's a hottie.

dani said...

Our Katie from right here at JW was with the DC people that got to see Jake up close and get the GQ cover autographed. I am happy for Katie and extremely jealous at the same time. Katie was suppose to be getting an autograph for me also since she had two magazines. She better have. I will accept no excuses!

heddaparsons said...

Brian Erickson: If you have cable and it carries BBC America, you can catch the Baftas there, 5:00 eastern time, check you schedule!

PS: Thanks all for the interview links!

Shouldn't britpopbaby be there?!! I'm seriously starting to think she has been kidnapped. I don't know why but I'd just love to see BPB and PG with Jake!

cina said...

I'm so freakin' happy for Katie!!! And GOD am I jealous!! LOL
But seriously - I would have fainted on the spot.

Anonymous said...

We'll all get to meet him at the premier of Jake Watch The Movie so chill ;)

Anonymous said...

How could anyone within five hours of London, who is in good health, and free to do it (not working or responsible for someone else) pass up a chance to see Jake! I hope and pray he decides to do some stage work!!!!!West End. A play that will run for months!!!!!

nice anonymous said...

I watched the Sky News tape loop, and Jake makes some amusing faces at the camera & isn't very forthcoming & seems to be holding himself at a slight, ironical distance from the whole experience of being questioned on the red carpet. He's so cagey, he won't even commit himself to stating whether he thinks whether Helen Mirren will win the award he's presenting. He looks extremely handsome, though, and amused as the interviewer at how he's being screamed at. I'm terribly proud of the lung power & perseverance & pluck of my fellow British jake fans.

KayDee said...

wooo hooo! just saw jake on sky!!! it's nice to ber screamed at.... smartass. oh, and he's ...huuuummmm.... working...?

are they going to show the whole ceremony live on sky on the net or only the red carpet?

also, is it just jake-induced craziness or do all the public there scream jake all the time?

KayDee said...

his face is so mobile, like on a baby chimpanzee ;P

and i'm sure i saw and most of all HEARD JW agents there

cina said...

LOL Kaydee! That was the cutest description of Jake's facial expressions I've ever heard! It's so true, and yep - he's so cute! :D

KayDee said...

there was tongue action!!!!

phoebe said...

^^ I KNOW!!!

GAAGAHHGAAAGAHH..

*dead*

nice anonymous said...

Yes, he lifted his eyebrows and shrugged, he sucked his lips inward, put out his tongue slightly, lowered his eyes (with those amazing feminine eyelashes), looked down at his feet & shuffled them, looked to the left of the interviewer & to the right, looked behind himself, at the yelling fans. So, in general, amused, aloof, a little self-parodying. And his hair looked simply outstanding. Perfectly combed, tousled slightly, nearly immovable. (Somewhere, Donald Trump is weeping bitterly, because all his money won't buy him a head of hair like Jake's ;-)

Bwahahahaha!!

kokodee said...

nice anon, you're the best!
God, I wished you seen Jake being all playful with Ruby and Sir Ian. I can only imagine your commentary then

nice anonymous said...

Thanks, Kokodee. Oh, I want to see that interview, too! I'm sure that will be posted online somewhere. (Doubtless the technically adept ladies at IHeartJake are downloading it, even as we speak.) BTW, I heard that Mirren won, unsurprisingly. (But "The Departed" was shut out, which makes me SOO sad :-( I'll look forward to clips of Jake presenting to Helen Mirren. I really do enjoy seeing our boy embracing an older woman.

E! is covering BAFTA red carpet Monday morning, 8 AM!!! Will I get a chance to see Ruby and Sir Ian and Jake clowning around if I watch it?? Bcz the SKY interview was sort of ho-hum. Personally, I think Helen Mirren isn't his top choice favorite to win. That's the impression I got. Either that or he's bored of the same ol' "Who do you want to win? Do you think HM will win? Did you see The Queen?" Actually, in order to be who HE is, true to himself and his roots in Indie films, etc., he gave the very answer I'd expect. In fact, I thought he was almost too candid in his reaction to that line of questioning. What I found pretty strange, tho, is that when he was asked what's new, or words to that effect, he didn't mention Zodiac getting ready to come out.And when he said he was in Morocco working on Rendition, he didn't mention Gavin Hood. Maybe he didn't want to appear to be hawking his wares on this special occasion. Who knows! He look delicious. His hair is...different.In the photos, he looks like he's scruffy, but on the Sky, he looked clean shaven.

kokodee said...

I am technically challanged or I would have put the E! snippet on youtube or something. Doubtless, you americans will get to see it I am sure.
The awards themselves are shown here with an hour's delay so its not live per se, (around 9pm GMT) but I'm not suprised at Helen winning, she has always been the fav, plus she's very british!

dani said...

There are some great photos over at DC. He looks simply wonderful!

get real said...

I think Jake looks beautiful. He so could play JFK Jr. in a film. Love it!

As for the interview, I have no problem with it. Wasn't like he was a total jerk to the interviewer. I have seen much worse with other celebs. Btw, it was cute when Kate Winslet said she called him and told him how to pronounce Helen Mirren, lol. And I can't wait to see the E! interview with him, Sir Ian et al! And of course the awards show when it airs in the US tonight.

*Off to see BAFTA*

^^ You're so lucky, hon!!

Hey dani, where? I can't seem to find them.. :-/

dani said...

The photos are on the Eyelashes thread the last few pages!

Katie said...

This ecstatically happy and deranged Agent/Lasher has just posted her pics on the forum.

I've just been alerted to this BBC report

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6352719.stm

If you read down about a Trio of Women going for Our Boy, I will not deny it. That was us and I'm not jesting!!

Don't know whether to be proud or embarrassed - I think I'll stick with HAPPY!!!
