The Favourite

Roma, The Favourite, win big at the British Academy Film Awards


The Favourite won seven trophies, including best British film and best actress for Olivia Colman, who plays Britain's 18th century Queen Anne in the female-centric drama.

Alfonso Cuaron's Roma, which centres on the nanny to a middle-class Mexico City family, took out the prizes for best picture, director, cinematography and foreign-language film.

Cuaron thanked Netflix for backing "a black-and-white film about a domestic worker'' that is not in English.
