Silent movie The Artist has dominated the 65th Baftas, taking seven prizes including best film, best director and best actor, for its star Jean Dujardin.
As well as his director prize, filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius picked up the best original screenplay prize.
"Some people thought there was no script because there was no dialogue so the British are very clever," he said.
Meryl Streep won best actress, for Iron Lady, The (2011), while Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (2011) won outstanding British film.
The Artist's Dujardin, picking up best actor, said he was "thrilled to be in the company of such illustrious, talented actors" as fellow nominees Brad Pitt, Gary Oldman, George Clooney and Michael Fassbender.
"To receive this award from the country of Laurence Oliver, William Webb Ellis and Benny Hill is an honour," the Frenchman added.
Accepting his best director Bafta, Hazanavicius, who gave a series of colourful speeches, said he was thrilled that award presenter Pitt "said my name correctly".
"I know that I will have some bad days because I'm a director but I will remember this day, today, as a good day," he added.
The film, the favourite for best picture at the Oscars on 26 February, also won prizes for best original score, cinematography and best costume design.
