BAFTA 2013 Winners

Every aspect of the industry was celebrated last night: the initial seed of an idea, the classic works of literature that inspire screenplays, the great people who are worthy of endless portrayals, the wild thoughts that ignite these movies. The technicality of filming, the original shots, the page turning scripts, the costumes, the sweeping scores and soundtracks. Actors; people who breath life into concepts, who enact words on a page into a visceral and tangible reality, who bring us laughter, fear, tears and entertainment. Press junkets, premieres, the spectacle of trips to the cinema, opening night anticipation. Then awards season buzz which eventually leads to these tremendous shows where the story tellers of this world are celebrated and decorated. Films have the power to change lives, brighten days, distract you from the mundane, remind you it's not that bad, help you to imagine, to feel, to dream. 

Hopefully, after last night's show, this great art form has inspired many more future directors, writers, actors...

Scroll down for the winners list and some pictures of the stars with their awards. Bet the Academy are feeling a bit red faced for snubbing Argo now...
