Bafta winners 2014: 12 Years A Slave

The Bafta Awards 2014 was a great night for British film as Gravity, which qualifies as a home-grown movie, took the lion's share of gongs. It won for Outstanding British film, Director, Cinematography, Music, Sound and Visual effects.However, one could argue that the night in part also belonged to Steve McQueen epic 12 Years A Slave. It landed Best Film at the awards which took place at London's Royal Opera House. In addition, its star Chiwetel Ejiofor may have boosted his Oscar chances thanks to his win for Leading Actor in 12 Years A Slave.Cate Blanchett is on her third Bafta win - she took Leading Actress for her role as a Manhattan socialite in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine. Her previous Baftas were for The Aviator in 2005 and Elizabeth in 1999. In her speech, she paid tribute to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, praising his "monumental talent".The likes of Brad Pitt - who produced 12 Years A Slave - and Angelina Jolie, Bradley Cooper and Tom Hanks trod the red carpet while Dame Helen Mirren received the Fellowship from Prince William.Click on the photos to see more winners from the Bafta 2014 Awards.
