London — Hollywood stars squelched up a soggy red carpet Sunday at the British Academy Film Awards, which pitted presidential biopic "Lincoln" against epic musical "Les Miserables" and Iran hostage crisis drama "Argo."
Steven Spielberg's stately historical drama about slavery-abolishing U.S. President Abraham Lincoln has 10 nominations at Britain's equivalent of the Oscars, including best picture and best actor, for Daniel Day-Lewis – though no directing nomination for Spielberg.
Stars including "Argo" director and star Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Samuel L. Jackson, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper braved a chilly rain that turned to snow as they walked the red carpet before Sunday's ceremony at the ornate Royal Opera House.
