James Cameron, who's spent the past five years working on Avatar, was named best director. The film, which is on course to become the highest grossing movie of all time, is now considered to be in pole position to do well at the Oscars.

The Hangover, a film based around a stag party in Las Vegas, won the award for best comedy.
