'Argo' triumphs at the BAFTAs with three awards
'Django Unchained', 'Lincoln' and 'Les Misérables' also do well at the UK film bash
Argo came out top at last night's (February 10) BAFTAs by winning three awards.
The film, a dramatization of the CIA-led operative to release American hostages held captive in Iran during the 1980 revolution, won Best Picture, Best Editing and Ben Affleck picked up Best Director.
Daniel Day-Lewis won Best Actor for Lincoln, while French actress Emmanuelle Riva was the surprise winner of the Best Actress award for her role in the subtitled film Amour.
'Les Misérables' picked up four awards on the night, although three were in the production categories, including Prouction Design, Sound and Make Up & Hair. However, unsurprisingly, Anne Hathaway won Best Supporting Actress for her role in the musical film.
Elsewhere, Skyfall took away two awards for Outstanding British Film and Original Music, while Django Unchained won two honours for Original Screenplay and Cristopher Waltz's performance in the Quentin Tarantino film earned him a Best Supporting Actor gong.
Searching For Sugar Man won the Documentary prize, Life Of Pi won the Cinematography honour, Amour won Film Not In The English Language and Pixar's Brave won Best Animated film.
