The National Movie Awards are a sort of British version of the People's Choice Awards. This year's winners included popular favorites Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 as Best Fantasy Film, The King's Speech as Best Drama (beating out Black Swan, The Social Network, and 127 Hours), and Colin Firth for Performance of the Year. See below the list of National Movie Award winners and nominees.

As you can see, the National Movie Awards actually has quite a bit in common with the Academy Awards. Only the categories are slightly different, e.g., Best Comedy (Paul), One to Watch: Brits Going Global (Jamie Campbell Bower).

In case you're wondering, Bower plays Gellert Grindelwald in the two Deathly Hallows movies. He also plays Caius in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.

Johnny Depp, for his part, received the Screen Icon Award.
