15.2 - The BAFTAs
The BAFTAs (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) are the British awards for movies.

Book 1 – read a book where the author's name matches the name of the winner (name highlighted in blue) of the BAFTA for male leading actor (any year).
Best Actor in a Leading Role

AND

Book 2 - Read a book where the author's name matches the name of the winner (name highlighted in blue) of the BAFTA for female leading actress (any year)
Best Actress in a Leading Role

Names can be in any position, and genders need not match, but the names must match EXACTLY. Diacritical and accent marks may be ignored.

Aprilleigh (aprilleighlauer) | 1055 comments I assume we only need to match one name, e.g. "Audrey" is sufficient for "Audrey Hepburn."

yes - otherwise the "name can be in any position" wouldn't mean much, LOL!

Deedee | 2079 comments The link has two sets of "Best" per year:

Best British Actor
Best Foreign Actor

Are names from both "Best"s usable? Or only the "Best British Actor" name?

For example, 1952

Best British Actor: Ralph Richardson
Best Foreign Actor: Marlon Brando

Both Ralph & Marlon? Or only Ralph?

Thanks

since both are listed under "best actor," you can use either.

Marie (UK) (mazza1) | 2476 comments so if I match with Kate Winslet 2008 and Kevin Costner 1991 that would work?

Whitnie | 281 comments Can we use a book that has multiple authors as long as one matches?

Thanks

Sorry, no. Please see the FAQs:

"9. What if a book has multiple authors in a task involving author names or initials?
The general default rule is that books by a single author must be used. This can be varied by the task creator until task becomes final."
