LONDON, UK  12 Years a Slave, the distressing tale of a man sold into slavery, was the big winner at the Baftas on Sunday, February 16 (February 17 in Manila), giving the Steve McQueen directed picture a huge pre-Oscars boost.

The film, adapted from Solomon Northup’s 1853 memoir, took the coveted best film prize at a star-studded ceremony at London’s Royal Opera House.

It scored an earlier success when British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, who portrays free black man Northup as he is kidnapped and enslaved in the United States, walked away with the best actor prize.

London-born McQueen used his acceptance speech to thank his “one and only mother” and to highlight the issue of modern day slavery.

“There are 21 million people in slavery as we sit here,” he explained. “I just hope 150 years from now our ambivalence will not allow another film-maker to make this film”.

McQueen’s work beat off competition from crime-comedy American Hustle, pirate drama Captain Phillips, space sci-fi thriller Gravity and Philomena, the tale of an Irishwoman searching for a son taken by nuns.

However, Philomena did win in the adapted screenplay category. Leading actor Steve Coogan praised the “real Philomena Lee”, revealing that she was in the audience.

“Her story has been told and her story finished in the Vatican,” he said. “She has been heard but there are 60,000 women who are yet to trace their children”.

Rising star Jennifer Lawrence won the best supporting actress award for her role in American Hustle and Barkhad Abdi claimed the best supporting actor prize for his portrayal of a Somali pirate in Captain Phillips.

McQueen missed out on the best director award, which instead went to Mexican Alfonso Cuaron for Gravity.

Accepting his award, he said: “You can not tell from my accent but I consider myself a part of the British film industry”.

Australian Cate Blanchett paid tribute to late colleague Philip Seymour Hoffman, calling him “a continual profound touchstone”, as she claimed her best actress award for her part in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine.

“Phil, buddy, this is for you, you bastard,” she said. “I hope you’re proud.”

Italy’s The Great Beauty won the best film not in the English language. The film is also nominated for best foreign language film in the upcoming Academy Awards.

Nominated in the category was British director Sean Ellis’ heist thriller Metro Manila, one of the 3 Philippine-themed films submitted to the foreign language category in the upcoming Oscars. (Read: ‘Metro Manila’ film an Oscars entry)

Although Metro Manila did not make it to the final list of Oscar nominees, the film was named Best British Independent Film of the year at the 16th Moet British Independent Film Awards last November 8.
