How to Watch the 2018 BAFTA Awards

Tuesday, 20 Feb, 2018

Dark comedy "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" emerged as the big victor at the BAFTAs on Sunday, February 18, in another politically charged entertainment industry event.

The drama, written and directed by Academy Award-winning director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges), was singled out as the victor in five categories on Sunday.

Other films in the race for the Best Film were Call Me By Your Name, Darkest Hour, Dunkirk and The Shape of Water. Among other female celebrities who chose to not adhere to the all-noir dress code was Frances McDormand, in a long-sleeved, print-heavy dress, which she pointed out herself while accepting her Best Actress award for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Our guide tells you everything you need to know to watch the BAFTAs on TV and online, including details of how to live stream the BAFTA Awards for free. Deakins is also nominated at next month's Academy Awards for his work on the film. I, Tonya star Allison Janney was also asked about Kate's choice of gown during the evening, and said: "I would never judge anyone's choice of clothing".

Referring to nominee Angelina Jolie, she said: "Actress, director, writer, humanitarian, there's literally nothing this woman can't do".

Scott Thomas said she is pleased by the conversation the entertainment industry is having about misconduct, but thinks a tougher task will be moving it from conversation to action. The only prize decided by the public, the Rising Star award, went to British actor Daniel Kaluuya, who features in the horror-comedy "Get Out".

Leading actress: Frances McDormand - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

As well as director del Toro's award for direction, composer Alexandre Desplat collected the original music award - his third BAFTA win - and the film also won best production design.

The Korean film "The Handmaiden" bagged the best foreign film at the 2018 British Academy Film Awards or BAFTAs and its director wants to party when he comes back to his home country.

Gary Oldman won best actor for playing Winston Churchill - one of two awards for World War Two epic Darkest Hour. English actress Joanna Lumley took over hosting duties from Stephen Fry (who hosted the BAFTAs for 12 years), this year and she left the celeb-packed audience in hysterics.

Following in the footsteps of the Golden Globes, which saw nearly every attendee wear black in honour of the #TimesUp movement, Sunday's Bafta looks made more of an impact than ever before.

"As we approach the BAFTAs - our industry's time for celebration and acknowledgment, we hope we can celebrate this tremendous moment of solidarity and unity across borders by coming together and making this movement worldwide", the letter said.
