Keira Knightley attends the 2008 British Independent Film Awards

Keira Knightley attended tonight's BIFA (British Independent Film Awards). As previously posted here a month ago, Keira Knightley and Kelly Reily Nominated for 2008 British Independent Film Awards, but unfortunately, neither one of them won for Best Actress category. They both lost to Vera Farmiga for The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (co-star of Keira's boyfriend and fellow P&P co-star Rupert Friend). The Duchess did not win either in its 3 other nominated categories (Best Supporting Actor and Actress, Best Costume). Kelly Reilly was not in attendance as there were no pictures or reports of her attendance there. She was probably busy filming one of her upcoming films, Sherlock Holmes, which has already started production and filming.

Anyways, check out new pics of Keira @ BIFA below!

Judi Dench 'Threatens To Quit' Bond Role?

The Sun and various other news entertainment sites have reported that...

The Brit legend, who won an Oscar for her role in Shakespeare in Love, has played 007's boss for over a decade.

But despite being referred to as the “real Bond girl”, co-producer BARBARA BROCCOLLI has revealed silver-haired Judi is contemplating waving goodbye.

Barbara told “She is our anchor. She is the anchor of the film in terms of the character. She is the only authoritative figure in Bond's life.

“She had such a great relationship with Pierce on the screen and she has such a great relationship with Daniel. She is our anchor. She is the real Bond girl!
"The one that keeps it all going, and I don't want her to leave. She keeps threatening to leave but I will not let her!”

Judi first took on the role of M in 1995, opposite PIERCE BROSNAN in GoldenEye. She has since starred in eight secret agent flicks, including The World Is Not Enough and 2006's Casino Royale.
