The second in the JRR Tolkein trilogy walked away with three prizes - including Orange Film of the Year, voted for by the public.

In that category it was up against some stiff competition like Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, which, like last year, won absolutely nothing.

Two Towers was up for nine awards in total.
