Argo Tops Split Field at 2013 BAFTAs


The winners' field at this year's BAFTAs was pretty evenly split between the top contenders. Here are the big ones: As expected, Argo clinched Best Film, while Ben Affleck took home the Best Director trophy — a win he called his "second act." Daniel Day-Lewis won the Best Leading Actor award for Lincoln. Concerns about a showdown between Best Leading Actress contenders Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence turned out to be pointless, as the honor went to Amour's Emmanuelle Riva. Anne Hathaway grabbed yet another Best Supporting Actress nod for Les Misérables, and Quentin Tarantino got Best Original Screenplay for Django Unchained. Finally, Skyfall won the Outstanding British Film honor — "This is a first for the James Bond films," observed producer Michael Wilson — as well as the Best Original Music award, courtesy of Adele.
