The red carpet, and some of the stars, were left soaked by the rain.

There weren't many British winners, with only Thandie Newton picking up one of the big awards, for best supporting actress.

Some of your fave films did pick up technical awards though, with the Goblet of Fire, King Kong and The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe all taking home one trophy.

British film producer Lord Puttnam won the Fellowship Award, the highest honour given out on the night.
