James Bond hit Skyfall - the UK’s biggest box office hit - has taken two UK movie awards.
The picture was named best film at the Evening Standard British Film Awards, while viewers voted it their blockbuster of the year.
Sacha Baron Cohen - whose outrageous characters have included Borat, Bruno and Ali G - took an honorary title, the editor’s award, to celebrate his “extraordinary achievement”.
Oscar nominee Daniel Day-Lewis missed out on the best actor award, despite huge acclaim for his lead role in Lincoln.
Instead, the prize went to Toby Jones for the independent art house film Berberian Sound Studio, which sees him play a British sound designer in homage to 1970s Italian horror.

Andrea Riseborough collected the best actress prize for her role as an IRA terrorist turned MI5 informant in Shadow Dancer.
But Tom Bradby, who wrote Shadow Dancer’s screenplay as well as the novel on which it is based, lost out on the best screenplay prize. That award went to Malcolm Campbell for What Richard Did.
The drama, based on the novel Bad Day In Blackrock by Kevin Power, tells the story of 18-year-old Richard Karlsen, whose life is changed forever after a senseless act of violence.
The Peter Sellers award for comedy went to deranged road movie Sightseers, directed by Ben Wheatley.
The black comedy had jointly led the nominations with gang drama My Brother The Devil, with each having been put forward in three categories.
The latter film also saw success, winning the most promising newcomer award for its writer and director Sally El Hosaini. Its star, James Floyd, had also been nominated for the prize.
Other wins included best documentary for The Imposter, about a conman who manages to dupe a Texan family into believing he is their missing son.
The ceremony, hosted by actor Stephen Mangan and formally known as the London Evening Standard British Film Awards, was held at the London Film Museum on South Bank.
