The BAFTA awards—the British Academy of Film and Television Arts—held the ceremony in London. Not only did they hand the Best Film award to “Argo,” they also awarded Affleck the Best Director award. The film won a third award, Best Editing, for William Goldenberg.
The BAFTA awards also award other Best Films. For Best British Film, the award went to “Skyfall,” the latest Bond film, which also snagged Best Original Score for Thomas Newman. Best Film Not In The English Language was awarded to “Amour.” And Best Animated Film went to Pixar’s “Brave.”
As could be predicted, Daniel Day-Lewis won Best Actor for “Lincoln” and Anne Hathaway won Best Supporting Actress for “Les Miserables.” Emmanuelle Riva won the Best Actress award for “Amour,” and Best Supporting Actor went to Christophe Waltz for “Django Unchained” (another instance where poor Leonardo DiCaprio loses out on a stunning performance).
