It's been a big night for the world of film. The British Academy Film Awards have been given out now far from here in central London. Our arts correspondent Vincent Dowd was at the ceremony at the Royal Opera House. He told me about the winners and losers.
"The biggest winner clearly in terms of trophies, six, was the film Gravity. But the bigger award which is what gets all the publicity, the best film went to Twelve Years A Slave, as everyone I think now knows story of slavery in the US side in the 1840s and 1850s."
That award, I have to say, wasn't a huge surprise. Chiwetel Ejiofor, the absolutely superb 36-year old actor, born in London of Nigerian descent, so accepting his award as an actor, he expressed his thanks to the film's director Steve McQueen.
"Thank you for your work, for your artistry, for your passion in this project. You really have the real vision to tell this kind of remarkable story to introduce me to Solomon Northup which I thank you for the extraordinary life that he had."
It didn't all go as the way of that film though Lupita Nyong'o from a Kenyan family who had been expected by many including me, to be honest, to win best supporting actress for her role in Twelve Years A Slave. That didn't happen. Jennifer Lawrence took it through American Hustle. However, Barkhad Abdi, now 28 and born in Somalia but long resident in the US since he was a teenager. He took the award for best supporting actor in the movie Captain Phillips. But as we've said, the other big winner at the BAFTAs was Gravity directed by Alfonso Cuaron. Now we always tend to refer to him as Mexican, but in truth, as he has been living in London now for 13 or 14 years, accepting the award for best director, which wasn't as we've said the only award the film got, Cuaron said he felt he'd earned the right to triumph as the man who made the best British film.
"You can tell from my accent, but I consume myself a part of the British film industry. I live in London the last 13 years and I've done almost half of my films in the UK. I guess I'd make a very good case for curbing immigration."
Londoner Alfonso Cuaron. Well, what were the other highlights?
"Well, there is always that standing contribution, isn't it? So that went this year to Peter Greenaway, the director. He said he'd always felt an outsider, so you are surprised to be told he'd ever been considered for that award. The other thing which I think will get a lot of publicity tomorrow, the Academy Fellowship Helen Mirren, which was given by Prince William, star, of course, of The Queen."
