Yesterday evening, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced this year's winners. The tight race between "12 Years a Slave" and "Gravity" has not been cleared, as both managed to nab top honors. "12 Years a Slave" won the awards for Best Film and Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor, but "Gravity" won the most awards, six including Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón. David O. Russell's "American Hustle" also performed well, taking home three awards including Best Original Screenplay and Supporting Actress for Jennifer Lawrence. Cate Blanchett won the Leading Actress award, which was no surprise, but the evening did prove to have at least one unexpected surprise in store as Barkhad Abdi won the Supporting Actor award for his breakthrough performance in "Captain Phillips".
