The Winners

Best Thriller
American Gangster

The Acceptance Speech
Chiwitel Ejiofor
"I'm thrilled to accept this award on behalf of Ridley Scott and American Gangster. It was a great film to be part of, as you all know his visual style is just extraordinary and Steven Zaillian on the script just made it into an extraordinary epic. So I'll make sure he gets this. Thank you very much."
