Olivia Colman has already won a Golden Globe, British Independent Film Award and a Critics' Choice Award for her portrayal of Queen Anne as well as scooping the award for Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival.

The film - directed by Yorgos Lanthimos - picked up a total of seven awards on the night, but its biggest win was for Colman in the lead role. "Reverting back to a world of separation and isolation is not a solution to anything", Cuaron added, at a time when US President Donald Trump is demanding a wall be built on the American border with Mexico.

Despite failing to win Best Picture, "The Favorite" was honored as best British film and claimed several other top awards at the BAFTA ceremony.

Cuaron was also named best director at Sunday night's awards ceremony in London.

"If they do good movies, they should be recognized.I'm very happy that they're embracing a time in which the theatrical experience had become so gentrified", Cuaron said on the red carpet about Netflix.

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

Rachel is nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role along with co-star Emma Stone while Olivia is up for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

Addressing the other winners from The Favourite, Olivia continued: "We are having an awesome night aren't we?" We're going to get so pissed later.

Rachel Weisz and Olivia Colman walk the red carpet at the 2019 EE British Academy Film Awards on Sunday (February 10) at Royal Albert Hall in London, England.

"This isn't for the lead it's for 'a' lead and as far as I'm concerned all three of us are the same and should be the lead and it's weird that we can't do that".

Rami Malek was named Best Actor for his performance in the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody and Mahershala Ali won the statuette for his work in the USA civil rights-era road movie Green Book. He paid tribute to Mercury in his acceptance speech.

Rami Malek won leading actor for "Bohemian Rhapsody", and Mahershala Ali won supporting actor for "Green Book".

Cooper picked up the Original Music prize for "A Star Is Born", while Adapted Screenplay went to Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman".
