The British Academy of Film and Television Arts handed out their annual movie awards on Sunday, February 10, at London's Royal Albert Hall. Technically known as the EE British Academy Film Awards, but more commonly called the BAFTAs, the awards are the British equivalent of the Oscars.
The ceremony, which featured performances by Cirque du Soleil and 20-year-old saxophonist Jess Gillam, was hosted by Absolutely Fabulous star Joanna Lumley. In her opening monologue, she took a stab at the Academy Awards, which has been plagued with controversy since its original choice for a host, Kevin Hart, dropped out after homophobic tweets he made in the past resurfaced.
"Thank goodness BAFTA actually has a host, but I suspect that may have something do to with the fact I'm not on Twitter," she joked, according to Variety.
Not surprising, the Favourite took home the most awards. The film snagged seven trophies: Outstanding British Film, Leading Actress (Olivia Colman), Supporting Actress (Rachel Weisz), Original Screenplay (Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara), Costume Design (Sandy Powell), Production Design (Fiona Crombie and Alice Felton), and Makeup & Hair (Nadia Stacey).
Roma won a total of four awards, with Alfonso Curaón taking home trophies for Best Film, Director, Cinematography, and Film Not in the English language.
While Bohemian Rhapsody was honored twice (Leading Actor for Rami Malek and Sound), the rest of the BAFTA awards were spread out among all of the nominated films, with Green Book, A Star Is Born, BlacKKKlansman, Vice, and Black Panther each winning one award.Below is the complete list of BAFTA winners.
