Long the standard-bearer of avant garde British cinema, Peter Greenaway -- director of such unhinged works as "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover," "The Draughtsman's Contract" and "The Pillow Book" -- has never even been nominated for a BAFTA. (Nope, not even in the days before they tried to out-Oscar the Oscars.) As of Sunday, however, he'll have one, as he's been named the recipient of this year's Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema Award at the ceremony. Says Greenaway: "Everyone agrees that cinema is changing its characteristics very fast and to be awarded a BAFTA for trying to contribute to that change is a pleasure and a delight, an encouragement and an acknowledgment that the effort is valuable, certainly for myself and certainly for all those numerous collaborators who have assisted me in this effort over more than 30 years.” [BAFTA]
