    Lincoln may have been the BAFTA favorite going into the competition, but it couldn't shut down Argo.

    Although the presidential biopic racked up 10 nominations for the British Academy Film Awards this year, it was Ben Affleck's drama that stole the show, winning Best Picture.

    While the Academy may have snubbed Affleck for this year's Oscars in the Best Director category, the Argo filmmaker won big at this awards show, taking that category as well.

    Affleck could not make a three-peat out of his BAFTA wins, however, losing the leading actor honor to Daniel Day-Lewis for his starring role in Lincoln. On the the women's side, Amour star, 85-year-old Emmanuel Riva, beat out the likes of Helen Mirren, Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain for the leading actress nod.

    Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway and Christoph Waltz took home the supporting actress and supporting actor nods for Les Miserables and Django Unchained, respectively.
