The 2012 BAFTA winners are…

13 February 2012

The Artist stole the show at the BAFTA awards in London last night, picking up Best Film, Director and Actor amongst others, taking six home in total.

Michel Hazanavicius' feature is widely tipped to take precedence at the upcoming Academy Awards, and given the silent pictures success in Britain, forthcoming success in Hollywood seems increasingly likely.

Jean Dujardin is the worthy winner of Best Actor, whilst Meryl Streep was rewarded for her wonderful depiction of Margaret Thatcher in 'The Iron Lady', winning Best Actress, despite losing a shoe on her way up to the podium.

John Hurt received the Outstanding Contribution To British Cinema Award while Christopher Plummer and Octavia Spencer were rewarded for their supporting roles in Beginners and The Help respectively, whilst Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy won Outstanding British Film.

It was yet another successful BAFTA night, recognising a vast array of quality over the past year, proving to be a very strong year for cinema. National treasure Stephen Fry did the honours of hosting the event, which included witty cameo's from Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman, as well as a heart-felt speech by the inerrable Martin Scorsese, awarded with the prestigious Fellowship honour, presented to him by Max von Sydow.

The only disappointment’s from the evening was the lack of recognition for Steve McQueen's Shame and Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin, whilst Drive also missed out on an award. However, for the full list of the winners, see below.
