Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy picked up more awards, however. It won for British Film of the Year and also picked up Screenwriter of the Year and British Film Star (Gary Oldman).
Michael Fassbender was named Best Actor for Shame. Best Actress was Meryl Streep in the Margaret Thatcher biopic The Iron Lady.
