February 10, 2019

The 72nd British Academy Film Awards, more commonly known as the BAFTAs, took place 10 February 2019 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. We break down the biggest talking points from the awards ceremony.

The Favourite wins big

Already a favourite among critics, The Favourite scooped up seven awards on the evening, more than any other, including Outstanding British Film, Best Actress (Olivia Colman) & Best Supporting Actress (Rachel Weisz). Will The Favourite win big at The Oscars later this month? We’ll have to wait to find out.

The EE Rising Star Award is special as it is the only fan-voted award in the BAFTAs. This year’s winner was Letitia Wright, she had a stellar year in 2018 appearing in Black Panther, Ready Player One & Avengers: Infinity War. Letitia follows 2018 winner Daniel Kaluuya, who also starred in Black Panther

Netflix wins big with Roma

Roma picked up three awards for Best Film, Best Director (Alfonso Cuarón) & Best Foreign Language Film. Roma has been the first Netflix original film to garner such praise and recognition from the major industry awards – it is also nominated for 10 Oscar Awards. Netflix was infamously banned from The Cannes Film Festival in 2018.

First Man leaves empty handed
