More proof that everybody loves Shia: BAFTA

Monday, February 11th, 2008

The British Academy of Film and Television handed out their awards last night, and Shia LaBeouf won the Orange Rising Star award.  Obviously good news, I know, but there’s more:  the winner of this award is not selected by the Academy, but is chosen by popular vote.  That’s right, in jolly old England, Shia is king, beating out homeland favorite Sienna Miller.  Why the Orange?  No, this isn’t an eBay star.  It’s named after mobile phone company Orange, who sponsored the evening.
