James Bond, Andrea Riseborough and Toby Jones were the big winners at the London Evening Standard British Film Awards on Monday.
Bond’s Skyfall was named Film of the Year, while Riseborough and Jones picked up the top acting trophies for their roles in Shadow Dancer and Berberian Sound Studio, respectively.
Jones’ win was a shock to many as Daniel Day-Lewis was expected to continue his awards season dominance and pick up the Best Actor honor for his portrayal of former U.S. President Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln.
The prizegiving ceremony was held at the London Film Museum.

Film of the Year – Skyfall
