BAFTA Awards, Mischa Barton Films New Music Video

24 Apr

BAFTA TV Awards 2012 – the nominations have been announced for this year’s BAFTA television awards.

Leading the list of nominated programmes is ITV’s Appropriate Adult, the mini-series about serial killer Fred West. The series received 4 nominations including best mini-series as well as a Best Actor nomination for Dominic West and a Best Actress nomination for Emily Watson, who starred as Janet Leach, Fred West’s social worker.

The other series which has done well in today’s nomination’s is BBC’s critically acclaimed Sherlock. This received 3 nominations including one for Benedict Cumberbatch for Best Actor. Both Martin Freeman (Dr Watson) and Andrew Scott (Jim Moriarty) received Best Supporting Actor nominations for their parts in the series. Although it won the Best Drama Series award last year Sherlock did not qualify this year as a change in the rules meant that any series had to have between 6 and 19 episodes to qualify for the award and the second series of Sherlock only had 3 episodes.

Other nominations include Maggie Smith from Downton Abbey and Miranda Hart from Call The Midwife who are both up for Best Supporting Actress. In the Best Soap or Continuing Drama category Coronation Street and Eastenders are up against Holby City and Channel 4’s Shameless.

Simon Cowell’s run of bad news continued today as both X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent failed to make the short list for Best Entertainment Programme. This year that category will be decided between Celebrity Juice, Derren Brown:The Experiments, Harry Hill’s TV Burp and Michael McIntyre’s Christmas Comedy Roadshow.

The 2012 BAFTA Awards are due to be presented at the Royal Festival Hall on 27 May with Dara O’Brian hosting the show. Dara has also been nominated in this year’s Entertainment Performance category.

Mischa Barton – the actress has been spotted on the streets of LA filming a new music video for Noel Gallagher.

There is no word yet on which Gallagher track will be featured.

Mischa was seen wearing a set of leopard print underwear and some red Converse trainers. She was acting with an unnamed man who was also wearing leopard print underwear.

Although she started off in the theatre Mischa is best-known for her work in movies. She has appeared in Notting Hill, The Sixth Sense and St Trinians. She is probably most recognised though from her role as Marissa Cooper in the Fox television series The O.C.

She has also been heavily involved with modelling and fashion. She has been used by Calvin Klein, Chanel Jewellery and has also designed a range of handbags for ASOS.

Around 2009 and 2010 Barton found herself in various kinds of trouble with charges against her for driving whilst under the influence of marijuana and having no valid driving licence. She was also sued for non-payment of rent by her landlord. In addition she was sectioned for 2 weeks in a psychiatric hospital after she got into an argument with nurses who were trying to give her some drugs via injection.

Mischa will be hoping that the exposure she gains in the new video will bring her to the attention of some film producers. She was involved with 4 different movies last year but none of them troubled the box-office much.
