    That draws an end to our coverage of the awards, thanks for joining us. While the winners party away, the losers can take comfort in George Clooney's words: "If you are in this room, it ain't losing."

    Well done to British winners Eddie Redmayne, Joanne Froggatt and Ruth Wilson, and bad luck to the other Brits who lost out. Maybe Eddie's win is an indicator for Oscar success? We'll find out the Academy Award nominations later this week.

    At the NBC Universal after party, The Theory of Everything's Felicity Jones said she'd been petrified ahead of her category being announced. She didn't win, but she's delighted that at the upcoming Baftas, at least she won't be an awards first timer. She also praised awards ceremonies for making sure people get to see smaller films.

    It's interesting watching the faces change around the ballroom. At the start of the evening, the nominees look excited, nervous but hopeful. With most of the awards now handed out, the losing nominees look like they just want to go home. Unfortunately for them, they'll have to show their faces, smiling, at the after-parties later.

    One more for the Brits! With so many nominated, it was optimistic we'd win this one.

    He paid tribute to Professor Stephen Hawking - who he plays in the film - and his co-star Felicity Jones, who he called a "formidable actress who raised my game".

    Also referring to his new wife and having to cut short their honeymoon to come to the ceremony, he said: "I promised her sunshine - it wasn't so great today - but thanks for giving us a honeymoon we'll remember."

    When I got to the door, I realised I'd been given the wrong ticket. It took an hour of frantic diplomacy with security guards and celebrities to get inside.
