Video: Jennifer Ehle wins the BAFTA award

Have all of you seen this video? It's Jennifer Ehle (Lizzy, you know) winning the BAFTA award in 1996 for her performance in P&P.  I think it's quite fun to watch, as long as seeing Jennifer Ehle with blonde hair won't spoil your image of Elizabeth. ;-)

I start watching from 1:28 to 1:45 which is where they show a clip of P&P, then skip to 2:36 for the announcement of the award. I can't vouch for the other stuff in the video because I haven't seen it.

I love how they play part of the soundtrack as she goes up to accept it and then when she leaves the stage... and I was quite pleased to learn that she first read the novel when she was twelve. Yay, Jennifer Ehle!

The video always puts me in mind of Emma Thompson's acceptance speech at the Golden Globes for the screenplay of Sense and Sensibility; if you haven't seen that, you might like to it too. (Supposing you've already seen S&S95, that is.) They played a clip of "Throw the Coins" from the soundtrack in that one.

Oh, and just to make you laugh: if you haven't seen it, here are some bloopers for P&P. I love the one at the end. ;-)

Her blonde hair is so pretty. She looks beautiful as a blonde or a brunette though. The bloopers are so funny. They really scared her in the last one! :)

Jennifer Ehle looks absolutely lovely. :) Even with her blonde hair. I just loved the blooper with the horse 'blowing his nose', having spent some time around horses, I know how inconvenient and messy it can be! :D
