Dance: I saw the Nederlands Dans Theater 2 at Sadler's Wells, which was fantastic.

Geoffrey Macnab: This year the British found themselves out in the cold

After the triumph that The King's Speech enjoyed last year, the Baftas 2012 were a disappointment for the Brits. The hopes that Gary Oldman or Michael Fassbender might pip The Artist's Jean Dujardin to the Best Actor award were dashed.

In the event, Branagh lost out to Christopher Plummer for Beginners.
