The Bafta Film Awards took place at the Royal Opera House on Sunday night - and it was all kicked off by Kasabian. Of course.

Kasbabian - who had already caused a stir on the red carpet:

Although nominee JK Simmons's pre-ceremony behaviour also left a little to be desired:

As did some of the backstage shenanigans:

And the Baftas - or rather, the EE Baftas - were off!

So who was going to win big on the night? Twitter had some ideas...

Fingers crossed indeed. As Kasabian played, there was the obliagtory montage of the year's best films:

Although not everyone appreciating Kasabian's performance...

Not everyone was a fan of Stephen Fry's script, either...

And while Fry was, of course, our host, it was the presenter of the first award - for Outstanding British Film Of The Year - who caused the biggest stir:

Yes, it was all a little... odd.

Still, at least their was some genuine Hollywood wattage in the audience...

And also on stage:

Including Julie Walters co-presenting...

...with Ralph Fiennes:

Note to future awards script-writers: do not, repeat do not, make a 'Selma' joke like this one...

And the categories kept coming:

And Cuba Gooding Jr took off his sunglasses:

Robert Downey Jr led a moving tribute to Richard Attenborough:

And Julianne Moore set tweeters' hearts a-flutter:

Hungry Julianne Moore, that is:

Still, not everyone was happy by this stage:

That's Alice Eve, who had to deliver one of the more unfortunate lines of the night:

There was still hope for 'Paddington' fans, though:

Although it was 'Ida' which actually won:

Whether in the audience or presenting awards, the stars were the gift that kept on giving:

As the end approached, it was all too much for some:

But then it was time for Stephen Fry to unveil...

Tom presented the Best Film award to 'Boyhood':

And then Sally Hawkins and Imelda Staunton presented the Bafta Fellowship - aka Lifetime Achievement award - to Mike Leigh:

Yes, we think we can safely say that David Beckham was the true winner at this year's Baftas.

Along with 'The Lego Movie', of course:

Although not everyone was a winner:

Ah well. At least everyone got away safely. We hope...
