Yorgos Lanthimos’s tragicomic royal drama “The Favourite” and Mexican family memoir “Roma” split the honors with multiple wins each at Sunday’s British Academy Film Awards – victories that suggest a wind of change may be blowing through the movie industry, ekathimerini.com reports.
“The Favourite” clinched seven trophies including best British film and best actress for OIivia Colman, who plays Britain’s 18th century Queen Anne in the female-centric drama.
At a ceremony held in London on Sunday night, “The Favourite” proved aptly named, coming away with the most awards as well as having the most nominations, including the awards for Best Supporting Actress for Rachel Weisz, Best Production Design, Best Hair and Make-up, Best Original Screenplay and Best Costume Design.
Alfonso Cuaron’s “Roma,” which centers on the nanny to a middle-class Mexico City family, took prizes for best picture, director, cinematography and foreign-language film.
