So without further to do, here's the list of winners:
Best Film: Drive
Best Director: Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive)
Best Actor: Jean Dujardin (The Artist)
Best Actress: Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk about Kevin)
Best Supporting Actor: Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk about Kevin) and Christian Bale (The Fighter) - TIE

Best original script: The Artist and Midnight in Paris - TIE
Best adapted screenplay: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Best film not in the English language: The Skin I Live In
Best British film: Submarine

So there we are. I will say that one or two results left me hurtling vodka bottles at the founders screaming that (Redacted Film) was robbed, and how I'm going to get Harvey Weinstein to promote my picks next year. However, as a selection of awards, I did find it more unpredictable alternative than a certain star studded event , save for the best film award perhaps.
Next year, I do hope for a Best Documentary section to be added as many brilliant films such as Senna, The Interrupters and Beats, Rhymes and Life deserved to be seen by more people this year.
So there we have it. It may not have as much glam and glitz as the academy, but at least we won't bore you with a two hour fashion show before the event.
