BAFTAs and Oscars can’t be compared, feels former chairperson and current committee member Dr. Glenda Jones.
She explains the lack of hype about BAFTAS is due to the lack of glamour and glitz when compared to Hollywood. ‘BAFTA’s work is very different from what Oscars do which makes us incomparable to each other.’
She was speaking at the University of Glamorgan where she was attending an event to give a speech to young business students. The event was organised by students of the university also part of the Enterprise Team – an all British scheme to train students at entrepreneurial skills.
