At the 2019 Bafta Awards ceremony, “The Favourite” emerged as the big winner, although it did not manage to take the top prize of the night. “The Favourite” took home seven awards at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards on Sunday evening.

However, it was Netflix’s film “Roma” that was given the title of Best Film. It marked the first time ever that a film made for a streaming service has taken the accolade, while it also won three other prizes. 

“The Favourite” won the Outstanding British Film category, while stars Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz won Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress respectively. 

“Roma” also won Best Cinematography and Best Film Not in the English Language, while there was also a win for Alfonso Cuarón as Best Director.

The soundtrack for Bradley Cooper’s “A Star Is Born” won Best Original Music. “Bohemian Rhapsody” star Rami Malek was named Best Actor, and Mahershala Ali won Supporting Actor for “Green Book.”
