Argo has continued its award-winning streak, picking up three Baftas including the top prize for best film.
Ben Affleck was named best director for his film about the rescue of American hostages in Iran, following its success at the Golden Globes last month.
The director spoke to the BBC's Lizo Mzimba ahead of the ceremony.
