Swedish vampire film Let The Right One In also scooped four, including one for best foreign film.

The film, about a young boy who falls in love with a vampire girl, also got the two breakthrough awards for its director Tomas Alfredson and young star Lina Leandersson.

It will be released in the UK in April.

British movie Slumdog Millionaire continued its award-winning streak, picking up one for editing. Mickey Rourke cemented his position as an Academy Award favourite by winning best actor for The Wrestler.
