Alfonso Cuarón’s ‘Roma’ and ‘The Favourite’ dominate — BAFTAs

Bafta film awards nominations in full

Rachel Weisz had earlier picked up the prize for Best Supporting Actress for her role as the Duchess Of Malborough, while it also scooped the award for Outstanding British Film. The film also won the Sound prize.

Australian Margot Robbie missed out, however, on an award for best supporting actress for her performance as Queen Elizabeth I in Mary Queen of Scots.

Olivia Colman poses in the press room during the EE British Academy Film Awards at Royal Albert Hall on February 10, 2019 in London, England.

"I'm surprised it did so well at the Klan Film Festival".

Olivia Colman triumphed at the Baftas on Sunday night, as she took home the award for leading actress at the British film ceremony.

In America, viewers will still be able to watch the ceremony at 9 p.m. ET on BBC America as well as the red carpet, which is being broadcast live on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube at 9 a.m. PT.

Costume romp The Favourite was the biggest victor at the BAFTAs on Sunday, taking seven awards, but Netflix's black and white film Roma picked up the Best Film prize, as well as Director, at Britain's top movie honors.

Votel noted that the Taliban are still capable of inflicting significant casualties on Afghan government forces. He has said since then there had been progress on the future of US troops in Afghanistan.

"To see a film about an indigenous domestic worker embraced this way in an age when fear and anger propose to divide us means the world to me", Cuaron said as he accepted the Best Film prize.

Who was Queen Anne, as played by Olivia Colman in The Favourite?

"We're having an unbelievable night".

Singer, who was sacked from the film three weeks before the end of production, is credited as director on "Bohemian Rhapsody" but has been absent from its awards run, including during its surprise win at the Golden Globes for motion picture drama. Colman said. "We're going to get so pissed (drunk) later". As far as I'm concerned, all three of us are the same and should be the lead. "It's got my name on it but we can scratch on some other ones".

Rami Malek's portrayal of the late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury - a victim of the AIDS epidemic in the days when homosexuality was taboo in rock-and-roll - earned him the best actor award, however. He paid tribute to his co-star, Lady Gaga, who was attending the Grammys in LA, which were taking place on the same night.

Rami Malek won leading actor for "Bohemian Rhapsody", and Mahershala Ali won supporting actor for "Green Book".

Bradley Cooper picked up the Original Music prize for A Star Is Born, while Adapted Screenplay went to Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman.
