So here we are movie fans, the 2014 EE BAFTA Film Awards are here again.  They were held earlier this evening at London’s Royal Opera House and here is our rundown of who left with an award and who left with only their bulging goodie bags and the bitter taste of disappointment.

Going into the awards this evening, presented as always by Stephen Fry, Gravity and 12 Years A Slave led the pack with the most nominations of the evening, including Best Actor award for British star Chiwetel Ejiofor.

As we have come to expect with the BAFTA’s there is a good representation from the British acting community, as Emma Thompson and Dame Judi Dench both nominated for Best Actress, and director Steve McQueen for his wonderful job with 12 Years A Slave.

Dame Helen Mirren was awarded the BAFTA Fellowship award this evening, which is the highest accolade the Academy can award.  This for me is a highly deserved recognition for Dame Helen who has a truly awesome body of work and is an amazing lady.

So here we go, let’s see who the victors of the evening were;

So there we have it, thank you BAFTA.

As many predicted the movie of the night was Gravity with a total of six awards, including Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón, with 12 Years A Slave stealing Best Movie. Some unexpected results in Best Supporting Actor with Barkhad Abdi taking the prize.

A well deserved win for Steve Coogan and his writing partner Jeff Pope for the Best Adapted Screenplay win for the heart warming tearjerker Philomena.

There was no real shocker in the Best Actor category with a well deserved win by British star Chiwetel Ejiofor. Cate Blanchett dedicated her Best Actress win to “the monumental presence of Philip Seymour Hoffman, which is now so sadly absent.”

I would have personally loved to see Belfast writer Colin Carberry win for movie Good Vibrations however good on him for his nomination.

Do you agree with the winners, please let us know we would love to here what you all think. Keep up with 4YE as we head off to The Academy Awards.
