The big winners at tonight's BAFTA Awards? GravityAmerican Hustle and 12 Years A Slave

Gravity bagged five prizes including Best British Film and Best Director. The movie starred George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. Neither of its lead actors were at the ceremony, but director Alfonso Cuarón gave a beautiful speech while accepting the gong for Best Director.

 'I don't know if I can open my mouth,' the half-Mexican Brit said. 'I consider myself a part of the British film industry. I guess I make a good case for curbing immigration.'

Jennifer Lawrence scooped Best Supporting Actress for her part in American Hustle but couldn't attend the ceremony due to filming commitments. Meanwhile, fresh from winning big at the Golden Globes, Cate Blanchett bagged Best Actress for her role in Woody Allen flick Blue Jasmine

J Law wasn't the only member of the Hustle cast to be celebrated at this year's awards ceremony, the movie won Best Original Screenplay and Best Hair And Make Up.

'Thank you for you work, your artisty and your passion in this project,' he said. 'To make it of such value, of such worth. This is yours by the way – I'm going to keep it, that's the kind of guy I am, but it's yours.'
