The biggest snubs and surprises at the 2019 BAFTAs

Viola Davis is up for best-actress for her performance in Widows

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.

Welcoming the movie's director Spike Lee and star Adam Driver to the ceremony, Lumley said: "It's an incredible film, it has already won many awards".

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 US civil rights-era road movie Green Book.

"Reverting back to a world of separation and isolation is not a solution to anything", Cuaron added.

Cuaron thanked Netflix for getting behind the film, which is in Spanish and has garnered 10 Oscar nominations, a major recognition for the streaming service.

"If they do good movies, they should be recognized.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.

"My mouth met hers and my mouth just opened and I kissed her".

As well as winning the gong for Outstanding British Film, Original Screenplay, Costume Design, Production Design and Make Up and Hair, Olivia took home the award for Leading Actress.

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

This year's leading actress category is similarly competitive, featuring Glenn Close for "The Wife", Lady Gaga for "A Star Is Born", Melissa McCarthy for "Can You Ever Forgive Me?", Olivia Colman for "The Favourite" and Viola Davis for "Widows".

"This is for a lead".

We've never talked about this, and I find it very emotional, but you were the classiest and coolest honour guards anyone could have. It's weird. but this is for all three of us.

British actress Olivia Colman poses with the award for a Leading Actress for her work on the film "The Favourite" at the BAFTA at the Royal Albert Hall in London, February 10, 2019. It's got my name on it but we can scratch in some other names,"she said".

A Star is Born won the prize for best original music, accepted by the film's writer, director and star, Bradley Cooper.

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.

Despite the popularity for the Queen biopic, and it being a British film, it surprisingly won only two out of seven nominations by picking up the Sound award too.
