Ben Affleck's "Argo" was crowned best film at the BAFTAs on Sunday (February 10) while Daniel Day-Lewis bagged yet another leading actor award for the title role in "Lincoln" as an increasingly familiar awards season script unfolded in London. Affleck also won the best director trophy for "Argo", about the rescue of American hostages in Iran during the 1979 revolution, and the movie is now in pole position to win the biggest movie award of all on Oscar night. SOUNDBITE Ben Affleck saying (English): "I want to say this is a second act for me and you've given me that, this industry has given me that and I want to thank you and I'm so grateful and proud and so I just want to dedicate this to anyone else out there who's trying to get their second act because you can do it. Thank you very much." Steven Spielberg's biopic of Abraham Lincoln was nominated in 10 categories but went away with just one award for Day-Lewis, following a pattern seen at the Golden Globes and at other prestigious U.S. award nights. SOUNDBITE Daniel Day-Lewis saying (English): "Just on the chance that I might one day have to speak on an evening such as this, I've actually stayed in character as myself for the last 55 years." Anne Hathaway won the BAFTA for best supporting actress for her singing role as the tragic Fantine in "Les Miserables", the movie version of a global hit stage musical. Christoph Waltz won the supporting actor award for his performance in Quentin Tarantino's slavery-era Western "Django Unchained."
