Insert ‘The British are coming’ related pun here…

The biggest night in cinema proved a runaway success for the brilliant Slumdog Millionaire last night, as the gold was dished out by the bucket for Danny Boyle’s Slumdog underdog.

The best film of the year to date stormed the awards, winning in every category it was nominated bar one – taking a total of eight of film’s prestigious paperweights.

Elsewhere Kate Winslet also managed to get her irritating self on stage to collect a Best Actress award for The Reader., while the night’s big shocks came from most nominated film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button walking out with just three gongs and Sean Penn slipping the rug from Mickey Rourke for the Best Actor award.

Here is the full list of winners, and – lest we forget my astute predictions – Chad bang-on predictions are marked in green.
