The British Academy held it's 10th annual Games Awards ceremony last night, and Sony Computer Entertainment was triumphantly represented by Naughty Dog and Media Molecule -- the two celebrated studios shared a handful of eight awards to bring back home.

The most expected of victors, the likes of Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, accumulated a total of five awards including the highest honor of Game of the Year. This is not the first event in which Naughty Dog sweeps the competition, although not necessarily on a grander scale this time around.
