Award show season inexplicably rolls on. With the Oscars less than two weeks away, I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel. Almost. This weekend, two more prestigious award shows entered the fray to make sure their picks were heard, too. The BAFTAs turned in some real love for fellow Brits, including Carey Mulligan and Duncan Jones, continued love for THE HURT LOCKER and AVATAR, and a non-shocking Best Supporting Actor win for Christoph Waltz. The WGA Awards kept going with THE HURT LOCKER love, pleasing this little blogger to no end.

Hit the jump to see the winners for both awards!
