BAFTA Film Awards 2019 Winners: Roma Wins Best Film, The Favourite Wins 7
Any real shocks in here?
The 2019 BAFTA Awards have come and gone, and if your film was named Roma or The Favourite, you’re leaving happy. Roma took home four awards, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Cinematography, and Best Foreign Language Film. These same four wins can easily repeat at the Oscars, and the film’s show of strength here with the British voters shows it is truly one that we shouldn’t easily dismiss at the Oscars.
The Favourite, in the meantime, was the most awarded film of the night with 7 victories, including Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Screenplay, and Best British Film. In the tech categories its name was called for Best Production Design, Costume Design, and Makeup and Hair. The film will likely repeat at the Oscars for Production and Costume, but the other categories are still up in the air, except Makeup, where it was not nominated.
The only other film to pick up multiple wins was Bohemian Rhapsody, which won Best Actor for Rami Malek and Best Sound. It also can pull wins at the Oscars in these two categories.
Here’s the full list of winners from BAFTA:
Best Film – Roma Best British Film – The Favourite Best Director – Alfonso Cuaron for Roma Best Actor – Rami Malek for Bohemian Rhapsody Best Actress – Olivia Colman for The Favourite Best Supporting Actor – Mahershala Ali for Green Book Best Supporting Actress – Rachel Weisz for The Favourite Best Original Screenplay – The Favourite Best Adapted Screenplay – BlacKkKlansman Best Animated Film – Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Best Documentary – Free Solo Best Foreign Language Film – Roma Best Cinematography – Roma Best Editing – Vice Best Costume Design – The Favourite Best Production Design – The Favourite Best Makeup and Hair – The Favourite Best Original Score – A Star is Born Best Sound – Bohemian Rhapsody Best Visual Effects – Black Panther EE Rising Star Award – Letitia Wright
