The dust has settled, the stars departed. So what key themes have emerged from this year's Bafta awards?
Eddie Redmayne was backstage "puking his guts out", reported Sally Field, with whom he'd been meant to present the best original screenplay award. Forced to go it alone, Field expressed fears he'd infected her, and that, moreover, it might be one of those bugs so contagious the whole opera house would shortly be awash in vomit. Anne Hathaway, herself under the weather, leaped to Les Mis's co-star's defence in her best supporting actress speech, saying it was merely food poisoning. We may never know.
An elbow in Oscar's ribs
Not only did Bafta dole out just one gong to the Academy Awards' clear frontrunner, they then proceeded to give the best director award to Ben Affleck, a man conspicuously snubbed in that same category at the Oscars.
