    "The Queen" was crowned best film at the Orange British Academy Film Awards and "United 93" helmer Paul Greengrass took director kudos in a night where the spoils were spread out.

    British, American and international fare was feted at the BAFTA ceremony, held for the first time at London's Royal Opera House, having moved up the road from last year's venue, the Odeon Leicester Square.

    "The Last King of Scotland" and "Pan's Labyrinth" each landed three prizes, with two wins apiece for "The Queen," "Little Miss Sunshine," "United 93" and "Children of Men."

    "The Departed" and "The Devil Wears Prada," despite six and five noms, respectively, went home empty-handed.

    The top acting kudos went to Helen Mirren, for her turn as Queen Elizabeth II in "The Queen," and Forest Whitaker, for his portrayal of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in "Last King of Scotland."

    "Last King" also scooped the Alexander Korda Award for British film of the year as well as the adapted screenplay prize for Peter Morgan and Jeremy Brock.

    "Pan's Labyrinth" proved a big hit on the night, winning the trophy for best film not in the English-language as well as makeup and costume design.
    Wins for "Little Miss Sunshine" came for supporting actor Alan Arkin and Michael Arndt's original screenplay.

    "Children of Men" landed two BAFTA awards from its three noms, picking up the production design and cinematography honors.

    In addition to Greengrass' win, "United 93" banked the editing prize.
    Dual nominee "Dreamgirls" was a winner for supporting actress Jennifer Hudson.

    Andrea Arnold, director of "Red Road," won the Carl Foreman Award for a first-time British filmmaker. Accepting her prize, Arnold joked, "I hear there is some money that comes with this award, which is great as my boiler's packed up."

    "Casino Royale" came into the evening with nine noms and high hopes, but went home only with the award for sound design. But the latest Bond girl, French thesp Eva Green, collected the Orange Rising Star award for emerging talent, which is decided by public vote.

    Other winners were "Pirates of the Caribbean 2: Dead Man's Chest" (special visual effects), "Babel" (the Anthony Asquith award for achievement in film music) and "Happy Feet," in BAFTA's new animated feature category.
