Daniel Craig attends the BAFTA Britannia Awards in Los Angeles on the eve of Skyfall's US release

A host of big names made an appearance in Los Angeles as the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) stopped over Stateside for their annual Britannia Awards. Daniel Craig was the chief name in attendance, and he walked off with British Artist of the Year Award at the BBC America-sponsored event, causing the media to go into overdrive as he displayed some rare PDA with his wife Rachel Weisz upon being announcd the winner. He was far from the only star there though, with Kerry Washington, director Quentin Tarantino and South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker all among those at the gala.

The assembled cast from Skyfall took center stage at the event, and had every reason to look in good spirits, given the huge success the film has had in the markets it's been released in thus far. The big one arrives this weekend though, with pundits expecting big things takings-wise for the film as it hits the US Box Office. Given the huge critical reception to it, you've got to wonder whether this is starting to look like the biggest and best Bond ever?
