Michael Fassbender, Olivia Colman and John Hurt stole the honours at Monday night’s Evening Standing British Film Awards which was a blazing success despite an alarming delay.

The awards took off to a rocky start when stars were evacuated from the venue following a fire alarm which put the ceremony behind schedule, according to BBC News.

Famous guests including Colman, Hurt, Clemence Poesy and Jessica Brown-Findlay stood out in the cold until it was deemed safe to return inside.

However the show continued without a hitch as prizes were handed out to the best in the business.

Fassbender won the best actor prize for his role in sex addiction drama ‘Shame’ and as Edward Rochester in ‘Jane Eyre’. He was not present for the awards so ‘Shame’ writer Abi Morgan accepted the prize on his behalf with a message from the actor saying he “truly honoured and delighted” by the win.

The best actress gong went to Olivia Colman for her performance in drama ‘Tyrannosaur.’ ‘The Iron Lady’ star beat Oscar winners Vanessa Redgrave, Rachel Weisz and Tilda Swinton for the honour.

John Hurt picked up the Alexander Walker lifetime achievement award for his contribution to cinema. ‘The Elephant Man’ star, 72, was presented his prize by ‘My Beautiful Laundrette’ director Stephen Frears.

The prize for best film went to Lynne Ramsay’s ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin,’ a drama about a woman who tries to deal with the grief of her teenage boy who goes on a high-school killing spree.

‘Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2’ picked up The People’s Choice Award for Blockbuster of the Year.

The awards were hosted by ‘Green Wing’ star Stephen Mangan at the London Film Museum
