British costume comedy The Favourite earned the accolade for Best British Film, Best Actress for Olivia Colman, Supporting Actress for Rachel Weisz, Original Screenplay, Costume Design, Makeup & Hair, and Production Design. The film also won the Sound prize.

Picking up her BAFTA, Rachel Weisz paid tribute to her co-stars, saying she had "the greatest luck in that I played opposite two of the most glorious women" while Olivia Colman said in her acceptance speech that her fellow actresses in the film had been the "best and classiest and coolest honour guard any woman could ever have" before adding "as far as I'm concerned, all three of us are the same....this is for all three of us".

"I'm surprised it did so well at the Klan Film Festival".

People watching the broadcast were stunned at the star's gag, sparking a backlash on Twitter.

Alfonso Cuaron's lyrical "Roma" has been named best picture at the British Academy Film Awards, while costume romp "The Favourite" took the most honours.

"Roma" is also nominated for best picture at the Oscars later this month, which has propelled Netflix into the Hollywood club of elite filmmakers despite fears that its streaming business model could undermine the industry.

On Sunday, the critically-acclaimed movie had four wins, including Cinematography and Film Not In The English Language.

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

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

The British starlet, who is married to James Bond actor Daniel Craig, was happy to talk about the smooch after picking up the EE BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Favourite. "We're going to get so (drunk) later", Colman told her fellow The Favourite nominees as she picked up the award to loud cheers. "It's got my name on it, but we can scratch in some other names".

Rami Malek took the Leading Actor prize for his portrayal of late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody", adding to his Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award wins for the role.

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

A Star Is Born won for its original music, with the film's writer, director, star and composer Bradley Cooper collecting the prize.
