Skyfall," the latest installment in the James Bond series, won the Outstanding British Film of the Year prize at the Baftas, beating out "Les Miserables."

"Skyfall," directed by Sam Mendes, holds the box office record in the United Kingdom and features Spanish actor Javier Bardem, who attended Sunday's Bafta awards ceremony, as the villain.

Bardem was nominated for best supporting actor, but he did not win.

Mendes said he had "high expectations" for "Skyfall," which starred Daniel Craig as Agent 007. EFE
