BAFTA awards held at Royal Opera House
Annual awards see Argo, Skyfall, Django Unchained and Life of Pi triumph.
Last night the Royal Opera House rolled out the red carpet to welcome the leading lights of the film industry for this year’s BAFTA awards.
Ben Affleck’s fast-paced Argo received three awards including Best Director and Best Film, while Sam Mendes’s Skyfall won Outstanding British Film as well as Best Original Music, marking the first time the Bond franchise has won a major award for fifty years.
Tarantino’s Django Unchained and Ang Lee’s Life of Pi also received two awards, while Ann Hathaway and Daniel Day-Lewis were also recognized for their roles in Les Misérables and Lincoln respectively. View the full list of winners.
Opera-fan Stephen Fry hosted the ceremony, which included a performance by singer-songwriter Paloma Faith. The full ceremony is available to watch again on BBC iPlayer.
The awards, now in their 66th year, have been held at the Royal Opera House for seven years running. Later this year, the auditorium will once again roll out the red carpet for the Olivier Awards, which celebrate British theatre.
