Wrapping up all the winners from the 65th annual BAFTA Ee British Academy Film Awards...

Sunday evening marked the biggest occasion in the British film calendar as Hollywood descended upon London's Royal Opera House for BAFTA's 66th annual British Academy Film Awards, which celebrated the very best in cinematic excellence from the past twelve months.

Tom Hooper's acclaimed musical Les Miserables may have won the most awards, taking home Best Supporting Actress (Anne Hathaway), Production Design, Sound and Make Up & Hair, but the night belonged to Argo, the CIA thriller picking up Best Film and Best Editing, while Ben Affleck was also named Best Director, despite failing to pick up as much as a nomination at the Academy Awards.

Elsewhere, Skyfall received Outstanding British Film (and also received the award for Best Original Music), while Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln) and Emmanuelle Riva (Amour) were honoured in the lead acting categories.

Big Win for "Argo," Ben Affleck! Oh Yes, and "Skyfall!"

Ben Affleck's "Argo" is not only being celebrated in the U.S., it has also been receiving love abroad particularly at the recently concluded BAFTA Awards (British Academy of Film and Television), the U.K. equivalent to the Oscars.

"Argo" took home the Best Film of the Year trophy, as well as the Best Director Award for Affleck. Once again, take that Academy -- the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, that is...

In the acting categories, Daniel Day-Lewis won for "Lincoln" (surprise, surprise), while Emmanuelle Riva (love her!!!!) won the Best Actress award for "Amour." Now, call me crazy, but I have a sneaky feeling that Riva will win the Best Actress Oscar as well. She's beloved, a classic, an icon, a legend -- everything a Best Actress Oscar winner should be!

In the supporting acting categories, my favorite, Anne Hathaway took home the Best Supporting Actress

The BAFTA Winners List Announced

  • HeyUGuys
The ceremony is over here in London, bringing together some of the finest and most talented people in the film industry under the same roof for one night. The BAFTAs are this country’s highest honour in film, and they have handed out their awards for the 66th time to those whom they deem the most deserving in the past year in film.

And since Ben Affleck is one of my favourite filmmakers of all time, I have been in a brilliant mood tonight, because he’s won (and very much earned) Best Director for Argo, and taken home the Best Film prize alongside his co-producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov. If you haven’t yet seen Argo, I can’t recommend enough how much you should see it as soon as possible.

Baftas 2013: Guardian film predictions

The Guardian film team predict who will win what at this year's ceremony

On Friday Xan Brooks assessed the field of this year's Bafta contenders and found it "a hazy huddle of frontrunners, all seemingly bobbing back and forth in front of the finish line".

Lincoln is first among equals with 10 nominations. Les Misérables, Life of Pi, Skyfall and Argo all crowd in behind.

The awards momentum has swung from Life of Pi to Lincoln to Argo over the past few weeks. In a competition this close there could be upsets. There should be tears. There must be winners.

So here's what we think will take home scary award masks this year. We've listed all the nominees. Our predicted winners are in bold.
