Since 12 Years a Slave opened in the UK over a week ago, it has received nothing but high praise from British critics and movie fans alike. Although 12YAS is not a British film, it has a large British/Irish talent backing with US money, courtesy of Brad Pitt. The film is expected to sweep the Feb 16th BAFTAs, including Best Picture and hopefully all three acting categories will be won by Lupita, Chiwetel, and Michael.

Also, the media office of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) posted select pictures on Instagram of the 'Congratulations you were nominated letter' package. On Tuesday they posted a picture of a letter addressed to Meryl Streep, and yesterday, they posted the letter to Michael Fassbender. Isn't that awesome? We're having a peek at Fassy's official Oscar nomination announcement letter. It just makes me proud of him again!
