The annual Awards party and gathering of BAFTA Members, friends and colleagues took place at Mickey Mantle's overlooking Central Park on February 13th 2011.

BAFTA's Annual Film Awards Party in New York was held at Mickey Mantle's overlooking Central Park - members were able to watch the live transmission provided by BBC America, from London's Covent Garden where the Awards Event was held.

The event, watched alongside the live transmission from London's Covent Garden was as usual crowded with BAFTA Members and friends who, also as usual followed every award - loudly!

This year's table prizes for winners increased the noise level noticeably as guests debated the results either shaking their heads or cheering, depending on their personal favorites.
Before the Awards began the raffle results were announced, with British Airways' round trip tickets to London and hotel rooms by Corinthia Hotel in London on everyone's wish list. Other providers of Raffle gifts for the party included, Exhale, Morrells Wine Bar, Central Park Conservancy as well as British Airways.
