Olivia Colman picks up best leading actress as The Favourite takes seven awards and Roma wins best film at the Baftas

Hollywood stars and royalty have attended the 72nd Baftas in London’s Royal Albert Hall, with Olivia Colman winning best actress for her role in The Favourite, which itself won seven awards.

Colman, who already has three Bafta television awards, won the award for her role as Queen Anne and Rami Malek, who played Queen’s Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, won best leading actor.

Despite The Favourite winning several awards including outstanding British film, Roma was the big winner of the night after being named best film.

Alfonso Cuaron’s black-and-white film about his childhood in Mexico City, was also named best film not in the English language, while he was named best director and cinematographer.

Along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who braved the cold to walk the red carpet, scores of Hollywood actors watched Joanna Lumley present the awards for the second consecutive year.
