Last night, Hollywood came together at the Royal Albert Hall during the BAFTA Awards 2018 to celebrate the best the film industry had to offer over the past year and it turned out that Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri would rule the evening.

The newest Martin McDonagh’s film took home the award for Outstanding British Film and Best Film while McDonagh himself won the prize for Original Screenplay.  Actor Sam Rockwell became the Best Supporting Actor and Frances McDormand received the BAFTA for Best Leading Actress.

With three awards, the incredible The Shape of Water was the second biggest winner of the evening. Director Guillermo del Toro won for Director and composer Alexandre Desplat swept away the one for Original Music. The film itself won the award for Production Design.

The award for Leading Actor went to Gary Oldman for his great performance as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour while Allison Janney won the award as Best Supporting Actress for her role in I, Tonya. The EE Rising Star Award went to Daniel Kaluuya and was the only award category in which people could vote for the winner.

As announced before the ceremony the BAFTA Fellowship would go to director and producer Sir Ridley Scott. It was awarded to him by Sir Kenneth Branagh and HRH The Duke of Cambridge, President of BAFTA.
