'Roma,' 'Favourite' win big at BAFTAs

How to Watch the 2019 BAFTA Awards and Red Carpet

Welcoming the movie's director Spike Lee and star Adam Driver to the ceremony, Lumley said: "It's an incredible film, it has already won many awards".

Alfonso Cuaron's semi-autobiographical film, about a domestic worker in 1970s Mexico, has won a string of prizes this awards season, further cementing its path to potential Oscar success.

As well as winning the gong for Outstanding British Film, Original Screenplay, Costume Design, Production Design and Make Up and Hair, Olivia took home the award for Leading Actress.

"I am seriously touched this film has been received the way it has been received", the 57-year-old filmmaker said while receiving his BAFTA for best director.

Meanwhile The Favourite - which stars Olivia Colman as Britain's 18th century Queen Anne - won seven BAFTAs.

Addressing the other winners from The Favourite, Olivia continued: "We are having an incredible night aren't we?"

Weisz won out against co-star Emma Stone who was nominated in the same category. "We're going to get so (drunk) later", Colman told her fellow The Favourite nominees as she picked up the award to loud cheers.

"The thing I really want to do is, Emma and Rachel (must keep this together) not just for your performances but for what you did after the cameras stopped rolling".

"As far as I'm concerned, all three of us are the same and should be the lead.This is for all three of us. It's got my name on it but we can scratch on some other ones".

The winners of the 72nd British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) have been announced at a ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Sunday.

In his acceptance speech, Malek thanked the late Queen's frontman as "the greatest outsider of them all".

A Star Is Born won for its original music, with the film's writer, director, star and composer Bradley Cooper collecting the prize.

Singer denies the story and the film itself was still up for the award, althought it failed to win it.
