NO BAFTA FOR JEREMY BRETT
VERY sad news indeed that The British Academy of Film and Television Arts will not be honouring Jeremy Brett with a posthumous Award.
Despite BAFTA 4 JB’s valiant fight, creating a petition and generating massive support for the cause with even several leading actors, producers and directors getting behind it, the Board of Trustees decided that their initial decisions on posthumous Awards would not change.
For many people though, Jeremy Brett will ALWAYS be THE Victorian Sherlock Holmes, and with or without a BAFTA Award, his legacy will always live on.

“Of all ghosts the ghosts of our old lovers are the worst.”

“But love is an emotional thing, and whatever is emotional is opposed to that true cold reason which I place above all things. I should never marry myself, lest I bias my judgment.”
— Sherlock Holmes, The Sign of Four
“I love your topaz-coloured eyes
That light with blame these midnight streets,
I love your body when it lies
Like amber on the silken sheets.
I love the honey-coloured hair
That ripples to your ivory hips;
I love the languid listless air
With which you kiss my boyish lips.
I love the bows that bend above
Those eyelids of chalcedony:
But most of all, my love, I love
Your beautiful fierce chastity.”
