UK's BAFTA names 'Argo' best film of 2012

British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards are generally a key indicator of upcoming Oscars.

    The British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, or BAFTAs, have wrapped up in London.

    The ceremony is generally a great indicator for the upcoming Oscars in the US.

    The BAFTAs have picked the same best film as the Oscars for the past four years in a row.

    This year, the winner of best film was "Argo", a movie about the 1979 hostage crisis in Iran.

    Al Jazeera's Phil Lavelle reports from London.
