BAFTAs 2019: The Favourite, Roma win big

Colman thanked her co-stars Weisz and Emma Stone while accepting the award at London's Royal Albert Hall on Sunday evening, United Kingdom time.

The success of "Roma" dented expectations of a clean sweep by "The Favourite" - about a cantankerous 18th-century British queen and her scheming court.

"I am seriously touched this film has been received the way it has been received", the 57-year-old filmmaker said while receiving his BAFTA for best director.

Lady Gaga, Lukas Nelson and Bradley Cooper were recognised in the Original Music category for A Star Is Born soundtrack.

Actress Olivia Colman, who played Queen Anne in the Oscar-nominated film, won best actress while co-star Rachel Weisz snagged best supporting actress.

"Didn´t we have an extraordinary time?"

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.

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.

Christian Hackenberg struggles in AAF debut
He finished the 26-0 loss with just 10 completions off 23 attempts, racking up all of 87 yards and tallying an interception. It's starting to become a hell of a lot clearer why he never took a snap for the Jets after being a second-round pick.

Kyler Murray is picking football over baseball
The A's remained optimistic as the offseason wore on , and manager Bob Melvin expected him to be at spring training . Murray is projected to be a first-round or second-round pick in the NFL Draft this spring.

United States actor Rami Malek poses with the award for a Leading Actor for his work on the film "Bohemian Rhapsody" at the BAFTA at the Royal Albert Hall in London, February 10, 2019. Best British short film was "73 Cows", while Vice won the best editing.

The 2019 edition has also been tinged by scandal.

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.

This referred to an article in the U.S. magazine The Atlantic detailing sexual misconduct allegations that included underage sex.

The film - directed by Yorgos Lanthimos - picked up a total of seven awards on the night, but its biggest win was for Colman in the lead role.

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

Best documentary was awarded to the film, Free Solo, which featured the story of free-climber Alex Hannold, the first person to ever climb El Capitan in Yosemite National Park without ropes.

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