2013 BAFTA Awards: 'Argo' and 'Skyfall' Win Big

Warner Bros.

While the British Academy of Film and Television may not have the international clout of the Oscars, they're still a big deal and can often drop some useful tidbits for all of the awards prognosticators out there. In this case, the BAFTA awards have only further propelled Ben Affleck's 'Argo' to the front of the pack.

Although no one film dominated the rest, 'Argo' was the clear winner, taking home Best Film, Best Director and Best Editing. At this point, it just feels like the rest of the world is rubbing the Academy's nose in the fact that they've snubbed Affleck. The other big winner of the night was 'Skyfall,' which won Outstanding British Film. There's something truly amazing about a James Bond movie beating 'Les Miserables' and 'Anna Karenina' in this category (Thomas Newman's score also won the Best Music prize).

Other winners include Michael Haneke's 'Amour' (Best Foreign Language Film and Best Actress), 'Django Unchained' (Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor), 'Silver Linings Playbook' (Best Adapted Screenplay), 'Lincoln' (Best Actor), 'Les Miserables' (Best Supporting Actress, Best Production Design, Best Sound and Best Make-Up) and 'Life of Pi' (Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects).
