Tributes have been flooding in for America's most famous film critic Roger Ebert, who died Thursday after a recurrence of cancer.

President Obama said that "the movies won't be the same" without him, while Robert Redford called him "one of the great champions of freedom of artistic expression."

Steven Spielberg said that his "passing is virtually the end of an era and now the balcony is closed forever."

Britain's Queen Elizabeth the second has been given an honorary BAFTA for her role supporting the British film industry.

The monarch mingled with Hollywood royalty - including George Lucas, Tom Hooper and Eddie Redmayne - during the event at Windsor Castle.

Kenneth Branagh presented the Queen with her award.

Beyonce and Jay-Z are causing a big stir in Havana.

The couple, who are in Cuba for their fifth wedding anniversary, have been mobbed by fans during their visit and police have had to step in to keep the crowds at bay.
