Captain Phillips, Philomena, The Great Gatsby and American Hustle also struck gold in a star-studded affair, once again masterfully handled by host Stephen Fry.

Elsewhere there were big wins for Cate Blanchet, Alfonso Cuaron and a Fellowship Award for Dame Helen Mirren. Will Poulter nabbed the public vote for the EE Rising Star Award.
