Bartfa Awards winners list in full
Friday 01 March 2013
The winners of the first ever Barfta Awards (British Academy of
Rubbish Films and Terrible Acting) are in.
The Barfta Academy says: “2012 was a bumper season for terrible film. In a normal year any of the nominees could have walked away with the top prize, so this years winner has proved itself to be something very special indeed. The Academy would like to salute the verve and single mindedness of all those nominated here, without whom the cinema would be a much safer place to go.
