Skyfall wins best film at Evening Standard Awards

Skyfall has won the Best Film prize at the 40th Evening Standard British Film Awards, in a ceremony at the London Film Museum on the Southbank.

The paper’s editor, Sarah Sands, said the “truly big British movie, delivered with a panache Hollywood could envy” ensured that 2012 highlighted “the creativity, vision and talent of a new generation of British film-makers, actors and actresses.”

The film was also voted the Best Blockbuster by Evening Standard readers in an online poll.

The jury, comprising critics from the Standard, the Times, the Telegraph and the Indpendent, named Toby Jones as their Best Actor, for his role in Berberian Sound Studio, beating off competition from Lincoln‘s Daniel Day-Lewis and Eddie Redmayne, from Les Miserables, while the Best Actress prize went to Andrea Riseborough, for her portrayal of an IRA supergrass in Shadow Dancer.

Sightseers won the Best Comedy award, Imposter was the Best Documentary, Anna Karenina won the Technical Achievement award for its production design, Sally El Hosaini repeated her London Film Festival success as the Best Newcomer, for My Brother The Devil, and the Best Screenplay trophy went to Malcolm Campbell, who wrote What Richard Did.

The Editor’s Award was bestowed upon two-time Best Comedy winner Sacha Baron Cohen, most recently seen as the comic relief in Les Miserables.
