    “The British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced today that computer games are to be the “third arm” of the organisation, elevating interactive entertainment to the same status as the traditional entertainment media. This should sock it to critics who claim that games are a lesser art form.”

    you’re right, Claire they did for the oast 2 or 3 years, I believe… Don’t think they were seen as major awards though. The BAFTAs have loads of minor categories as well as the major ones publicised inthe press. Kind of like the Oscars that way
