Abigail Breslin

Ten-year-old actress Abigail Breslin has earned Bafta and Oscar nominations for the comedy Little Miss Sunshine, but lost out on the UK honour to Dreamgirls' Jennifer Hudson.

Toni Colette

Breslin's co-star and fellow nominee Toni Colette said before the ceremony that she would "prefer not to win, then I don't have to get up and speak in front of anyone".

Pedro Almodovar and Penelope Cruz

The ceremony at London's Royal Opera House saw Pedro Almodovar's Volver, starring Penelope Cruz, beaten to the foreign language film prize by Pan's Labyrinth.

Eva Green

The latest James Bond film, Casino Royale, took just one award for best sound from nine nominations. But Bond girl Eva Green won the rising star honour voted for by the public.

Forest Whitaker

Forest Whitaker was honoured for his performance as Idi Amin in The Last King of Scotland. This follows Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and numerous other successes.

Paul Greengrass

The best director award went to Paul Greengrass, for United 93, ahead of rivals including Martin Scorsese and Stephen Frears. The drama depicts one of the 9/11 plane hijackings.

Stephen Frears

Frears' The Queen took the best picture prize. The drama about the Royal family's reaction to the death of Princess Diana is a contender for the same award at the Oscars.

Dame Helen Mirren

British acting legend Dame Helen Mirren has enjoyed the greatest awards success of her career with The Queen and is clear favourite for the best actress Oscar later this month.
