Finally. Made by a British director but set in America, 12 Years A Slave tonight scooped the award for Best Film at the Baftas. In a glittering ceremony in London packed with stars, the British-made film Gravity was also among the big winners.
ITV News's Nina Nannar was there:
Jennifer Lawrence has been awarded Best Supporting Actress for her role in American Hustle at the British Academy Film Awards.
Gravity beat Rush and Philomena for the Bafta for outstanding British film.
The presence of the film - which stars US actors Sandra Bullock and George Clooney and was directed by a Mexican (Alfonso Cuaron) - in this category has caused controversy.
It was, however, filmed in Britain and the team responsible for its visual effects are UK-based.
