In case anyone has been doubting that Slumdog Millionaire is going to take home Best Picture at the Academy Awards in two weeks, i've got some additional supporting evidence for you.

The film took home the BAFTA (that's the British Academy of Film and Television Arts award) for Best Film this weekend and also picked up trophies for Best Director (Danny Boyle), Music, Adapted Screenplay, Editing, Sound and Cinematography.

Oddly enough however, while it was also nominated in the Best British Film category, it lost to James Marsh's documentary Man on Wire. Interesting, no?

Also taking home awards were the usual suspects: Mickey Rourke for The Wrestler (Lead Actor), Kate Winslet for The Reader (Lead Actress), Penelope Cruz for Vicky Christina Barcelona (Supporting Actress), and (of course) Heath Ledger for The Dark Knight (Supporting Actor).
