   The film swept the BAFTAs with a total of seven wins, including Best Picture (in our second video), Best Supporting Actor for Geoffrey Rush and, as reported earlier tonight, Best Supporting Actress for Helena Bonham Carter.
   Both The Black Swan and The Social Network took awards home at the BAFTAs, with Best Actress for Natalie Portman and Best Director for David Fincher respectively.
