Now THIS is a BIG win!
It might always be nice to be nominated, but it's even better to win!
And the cast and crew involved in 12 Years a Slave is enjoying a major win as they were awarded Best Film at the BAFTA Awards.
The film beat out other top-notch films including American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Gravity, and Philomena.
We're super happy this film is being so well-received by audiences and critics. But now we're all wondering if this means it has a lock on the Oscar!
