Hosted for the tenth year by Stephen Fry at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, the winners of the EE sponsored 68th annual British Academy Film Awards have been announced with Boyhood nabbing the accolade for Best Film and The Grand Budapest Hotel making off with five wins out of its eleven nominations!

Eddie Redmayne picked up the gong for Best Actor for his turn as Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, which also won Outstanding British Film and J.K Simmons walked away with Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Fletcher in Whiplash.

Julianne Moore won the Leading Actress Award for her portrayal of Dr. Alice Howland in Still Alice and Patricia Arquette was awarded with Best Supporting Actress for her role in Boyhood.
