'Roma' wins Best Film at UK's BAFTA awards

How to Watch the 2019 BAFTA Awards and Red Carpet

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

LONDON: Netflix production "Roma", a cinematic love letter to director Alfonso Cuaron´s childhood in Mexico City, triumphed at the Bafta film awards on Sunday, boosting its Oscar hopes.

"If they do good movies, they should be recognised. I'm very happy that they're embracing diversity.in 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 (must keep this together) not just for your performances but for what you did after the cameras stopped rolling. And what is very needed is a balance between the two economic models - the theatres and the (streaming) platforms, because that's only going to be good for cinema".

Colman, who portrays the monarch as frail and tempestuous, won the Leading Actress category, a victory that had been expected by many.

"We're having an wonderful night aren't we".

Colman - who rose to fame playing Sophie Chapman in Peep Show - paid tribute to her "classiest and coolest" fellow co-stars in the film, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone, and said in her eyes, the award was for all three of them as leads, and that she would "scratch in" their names on the Bafta statuette too.

"This is for a lead".

"This is for all three of us". On Sunday, the critically-acclaimed movie had four wins, including Cinematography and Film Not In The English Language.

Olivia Colman poses in the press room during the EE British Academy Film Awards at Royal Albert Hall on February 10, 2019 in London, England. Cooper also scored one of this year's best director nominations alongside Alfonso Cuaron for "Roma", Lanthimos for "The Favourite", Spike Lee for "BlacKkKlansman" and Paweł Pawlikowski for "Cold War".

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.

Best supporting actor went to Mahershala Ali for "Green Book", a comedy-drama in which he plays a jazz pianist on a tour of the Deep South in 1962.
