BAFTAs 2014: The Winners In Full

Alfonso Cuaron and David Heyman, BAFTA winners for Gravity

The 2014 EE British Academy Film Awards took place on a surprisingly dry and pleasant evening at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, and it was a night without too many surprises.

The big winner of the evening - both in numbers and in spirit - was Gravity, with a grand total of 6 awards. It won Outstanding British Film for producers David Heyman and Alfonso Cuaron, as well as gongs for Best Director, Cinematography, Sound, Original Music and Special Visual Effects.

But the main award of the evening, Best Film, went to 12 Years A Slave, which also captured Best Actor courtesy of Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Though the film didn't take home the big prizes, the feel-good triumph was surely Barkhad Abdi, who won Best Supporting Actor for Captain Phillips

American Hustle got the BAFTA for Original Screenplay, and deservedly took home Best Hair & Make Up, so all those tiny hair curlers and comb-over wigs didn't go to waste. Elsewhere in the more aesthetic categories, The Great Gatsby had a good run, winning for both Production Design and Costume Design. Best Editing went to Rush, with Ron Howard accepting the gong on behalf of his regular editors Dan Hanley and Mike Hill.

Joshua Oppenheimer won Best Documentary for his extraordinary film, The Act Of Killing, and took the opportunity to speak out about the Indonesian genocide.

Two wins, however, were no surprise at all, given they were pre-announced. Peter Greenaway was awarded a BAFTA for Outstanding Contribution to British Film, while Dame Helen Mirren received the Academy Fellowship. 

Stephen Fry did an admirable job as the bearded master of cermonies, entertaining the absurdly famous and beautiful audience with his soothing, tweed-infused tones. No Gervais-esque controversies to be found here, people, though he did take the opportunity to flirt with Leonardo DiCaprio, Sam Claflin and Douglas Booth. But if we're honest, who wouldn't?

You can read our minute-by-minute accounts of tonight's ceremony and the red carpet, where you'll see our real-time thoughts and terrible jokes about tonight's winners, losers and wardrobe malfunctions (maybe).
