  Rings named best film at Baftas
Updated 16 February 2004, 07.35

The Return of the King was the big winner at the Bafta awards, taking home five awards including best film.

The final film in the trilogy was also named The Orange Film Of The Year, which is voted for by the public, just like the first two Rings films.

Rings director Peter Jackson said: "I'm absolutely thrilled, completely thrilled, my heart's thumping."

The awards are often thought to give clues as to which films will win at the Oscars, which happen on 29 February.

The Orange Film Of The Year (Voted By The Public)
There was a surprise when Peter Weir was named best director for Master and Commander, which won four Baftas.

Both the big acting prizes went to the same film - Lost in Translation.

Bill Murray was named best actor and 19-year-old Scarlett Johansson won the best actress award.

The biggest disappointment was Cold Mountain, which only won two awards despite getting 13 nominations.
