It was an incredible evening as the stars descended on the Royal Opera House for the BAFTAs, with 'Argo' sweeping the top honours, but what exactly were the stars saying? From George Clooney's love of Stephen Fry's beard to what Eddie Redmayne and Samuel L Jackson were doing backstage, we've got the best quotes.
"Just in case I might have to speak at these awards, I have stayed in character as myself for the last 55 years. Every time I rose from a chair, it spontaneously released a soundtrack of tremendous applause, with an occasional boo and drunken heckling." - Daniel Day-Lewis pokes fun at his method acting technique when accepting the Best Actor Award.
"I share this with the cast and crew of Les Miserables, who are the most gold-hearted group of loves and it was a pleasure to work with them every day. Thank you to Tom Hooper, for your ability to make dreams come true. Thanks to Victor Hugo without whom none of us would be here.” - Anne Hathaway gets a little carried away and thanks an author who died over a century ago.
"Our film is about emotions and people, and this is for every family that faces those troubles every day." - David O. Russell dedicates 'Silver Linings Playbook's' Adapted Screenplay win to troubled families.
"This is a second act, and you've given me that, this industry has given me that. So I'd like to dedicate this award to anyone else who is looking for their second act." - Ben Affleck thanks Hollywood for not giving up on him after the 'Gigli' debacle.
"First I had a pee next to Samuel L Jackson and now this! I don't think we ever imagined that this amazing journey was going to lead us to be in this room doing some shaky public speaking in front of so many of our heroes." - 'The Imposter' director Bart Layton reveals the stranger elements of the BAFTA ceremony for a newbie.

"You can't stare at anyone's t**s without the flashbulbs going off."- Billy Connolly reveals why he's not a fan of aftershow parties to The Telegraph.
"We would want to make a better movie next time around, and if we thought we could do that they might let me have another go again." - 'Skyfall' director Sam Mendes reveals his plans for the next Bond movie.
"Thanks for making it OK for leading men to have facial hair." - A hirsute George Clooney owes a strange debt to Stephen Fry.

"Hey Eddie, get well soon. I'd come and hold your hair – but, you know." - Anne Hathaway reveals that her 'Les Miserables' co-star Eddie Redmayne is err... chucking up backstage.
"Why I get to stand here is really no mystery, because it says at the very beginning of our movie, 'Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino' and of course I want to thank Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio and the rest. But it all starts and ends with Quentin. Really, beyond everything I need and want to thank you for, most of all is the trust that I will put your creation to good use, you silver-penned devil you! Thank you!" - Best Supporting Actor winner Christoph Waltz calls Quentin Tarantino a "silver penned devil".
