  Rings wins five Baftas, Potter gets none

The Lord of the Rings was the big winner, and Harry Potter the big loser at the Bafta Awards.

Lord of the Rings claimed five prizes at Britain's biggest movie awards, including best director and best film.

It also won the audience award for favourite film, the only prize voted for by ordinary people and not film insiders.

But Harry Potter rode home on its Nimbus 2000 with nothing, even though it was nominated in eight different categories.

But the weather almost overshadowed the glittering event, with pouring rain forcing the big-name stars to hide under umbrellas.

The 'not so red' carpet
And even worse, the red carpet had only just been cleaned, so the rain brought all the shampoo to the surface and ruined loads of pairs of really expensive shoes.

Other films that did well were Moulin Rouge with three Baftas, and Gosford Park, Amelie and A Beautiful Mind with two each.
