The thrilling John Le Carre adaptation earned best actor for Tom Hiddleston and best actress for Olivia Coleman, who unfortunately wasn't able to attend the event.

Hugh Laurie was named best supporting actor for his character, bad guy Richard Roper. In his speech he made a swipe at president-elect Donald Trump  by saying: " I accept this award on behalf of psychopathic billionaires everywhere." 

And the British wins didn't stop there.  Actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson also joined the ranks of Brit winners.
