The 2018 BAFTA Film Awards have been dished out in London at the city’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall. The big winner on the night was clearly Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which walked off with no less than five awards, including the two big ones, Best British Film and Best Film. Frances McDormand also walked away with Best Actress. Alison Janney scored Best Supporting Actress for her role in this week’s big UK release I, Tonya.

In the male acting roles, Gary Oldman won for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, while Sam Rockwell had a deserved win in the supporting actor category  for ‘Three Billboards’. Original Screenplay was also awarded to Martin McDonagh’s movie, while the filmmaker lost out to Guillermo del Toro for The Shape Of Water in the Best Director category.

Composer Alexandre Desplat collected the Original Music award, also for The Shape Of Water, his third BAFTA win; the film also won Production Design.
Roger Deakins won his fourth BAFTA for Cinematography for Blade Runner 2049, which also won for Special Visual Effects.
Raoul Peck won the Documentary award for I Am Not Your Negro. Film Not in the English Language was won by South Korean drama The Handmaiden and Coco took the BAFTA for Animated Film.
Writer/director Rungano Nyoni and producer Emily Morgan received the award for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer for I Am Not a Witch.
Baby Driver received the BAFTA for Editing and Phantom Thread won for Costume Design. James Ivory won for Adapted Screenplay for Call Me by Your Name and Dunkirk for Sound. Cowboy Dave won the British Short Film award.
The Special Award for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema was presented to the National Film and Television School (NFTS). The school has trained generations of BAFTA-nominated film talent; this year’s British Short Animation award was won by Poles Apart, which is the 13th NFTS graduation film to win a BAFTA.
The Fellowship, the highest honour the Academy can bestow was presented to director and producer Sir Ridley Scott by HRH The Duke of Cambridge, President of BAFTA, and Sir Kenneth Branagh.
The EE Rising Star Award, voted for by the public, went to Daniel Kaluuya.
