BAFTA winners 2013For those unaware, BAFTA or the ‘British Academy of Films and Television Arts’ is the Brit equivalent of the Oscar’s and the Golden Globes. So you can imagine that winning a BAFTA is a pretty big deal. On Sunday night the BAFTAs for this year were announced, in a grand ceremony attended by stars both from Hollywood and from the British film and television industry. Ben Affleck’s Argo managed to create a stir even here. It walked away with the Best Film and the Best Director awards. And once again forced everyone to question, as to why Affleck wasn’t nominated by the Academy for the Best Director award for Argo.

As expected, Daniel Day Lewis won the Best Actor award for Lincoln. Emmanuelle Riva on the other hand won the Best Actress award for Amour. Christoph Waltz won the award for the Best Actor in a supporting role for Django Unchained; again something that most were expecting. Anne Hathaway’s win for her supporting role in Les Misérables many would say was also on the expected lines. Here is the complete list of BAFTA winners:
