Rachel Weisz & Olivia Colman Glam Up for BAFTAs 2019!

"We're having an incredible night".

The royal couple sat in the front row for the star-studded awards ceremony and greeted some of the night's winners, including best actress victor Olivia Coleman, who is also an Oscar nominee for her portrayal of Queen Anne in The Favourite.

"She doesn't take herself too seriously and she enjoys what she's doing", Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos said after winning the Bafta for outstanding British film. "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-I must keep it together-not just for your performances but for what you did after the cameras stopped rolling", Colman said. We've never talked about this, and I find it very emotional, but you were the classiest and coolest honour guards anyone could have.

"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 in some others names.

"Roma" won the best film and best director, sharing the glory with British black comedy "The Favourite" which picked up best actress for Olivia Colman as Queen Anne and best-supporting actress for Rachel Weisz playing her confidante and lover.

The film had led the nominations ahead of the ceremony, with 12 nods.


While The Favourite took the most awards on the night, Roma secured the biggest gongs including Best Film and Best Director.

Singer, who was sacked from the film three weeks before the end of production, is credited as director on "Bohemian Rhapsody" but has been absent from its awards run, including during its surprise win at the Golden Globes for motion picture drama.

BlackKklansman won the prize for Best Adapted Screenplay and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse scored the Best Animated Film trophy.

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

Film editor Thelma Schoonmaker was awarded a fellowship for her decades of work with directors, most especially Martin Scorcese.

Best documentary was awarded to the film, Free Solo, which featured the story of free-climber Alex Hannold, the first person to ever climb El Capitan in Yosemite National Park without ropes.
