Skyfall triumphs at the London Evening Standard British Film Awards

Feb 4 2013, 4:33pm CST | by

'Skyfall' picked up the Film of the Year award at the London Evening Standard British Film Awards.

The 23rd James Bond movie - starring Daniel Craig and directed by Sam Mendes - was awarded the prize at a ceremony at the London Film Museum on the South Bank on Monday (04.02.13).

Producers, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson, picked up the award, which was presented by Hayley Atwell

Sarah Sands, Editor of the Evening Standard said: ''Thanks in part to the extraordinary success of Skyfall - a truly big British movie, delivered with a panache Hollywood could envy - 2012 also highlighted the creativity, vision and talent of a new generation of British film-makers, actors and actresses.''

Andrea Riseborough picked up the Best Actress award for her performance as an IRA bomber in James Marsh's thriller 'Shadow Dancer' while Toby Jones beat off competition from Daniel Day-Lewis and Eddie Redmayne to take the top acting award for his role as a British sound designer in 'Berberian Sound Studio'.

Malcolm Campbell took home the Best Screenplay trophy for 'What Richard Did', which tells the story of Richard, a popular Irish teenager whose life is changed forever after a senseless act of violence.

'Transformers 4' star Jack Reynor, who shot to fame in 'What Richard Did', presented the award.

Sacha Baron Cohen was the recipient of the Editor's Award, for making an event of every one of his films.

The 40th Evening Standard British Film Awards were held in association with the London Film Museum, supported by Chopard and Moet & Chandon
