This year, there were only five winners announced, as opposed to thirteen in years past. The top prize of Film of the Year went to Ben Affleck's Argo. In a statement, Affleck said "We thank the UK regional film critics on behalf of all the cast and production team for voting Argo Film of the Year in the Richard Attenborough critics’ awards."
The new James Bond film Skyfall by Sam Mendes took two prizes, claiming both Filmmaker of the Year and Rising Star for Ben Whishaw who played the new Q in the series.
Amy Jump, Alice Lowe and Steve Oram won Screenwriter of the Year for the black comedy Sightseers. Robert Pattinson won the public-voted award British Performance of the Year for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.
