The Favourite wins Seven BAFTAs, but Roma wins Best Film

BAFTA awards

Mexican drama Roma won “Best Film” and “Best Director” in this year’s BAFTAs.

The film also won the awards for “Film Not in the English Language” and “Cinematography”.

This may be a surprise to some people who had predicted that The Favourite would be named “Best Film”, but the period comedy did win the most awards on the night, winning seven awards including “Outstanding British Film”, “Original Screenplay”, “Leading Actress” for Olivia Colman and “Supporting Actress” for Rachel Weisz.

Other multiple award winners include Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody (“Sound” and “Leading Actor” for Rami Malek) and Black Panther (“Special Visual Effects” and the public-voted “Rising Star Award” for Letitia Wright).
