Most notably, Olivia Colman won Best Actress for her portrayal of the 18th century British Queen Anne in the picture.

"Reverting back to a world of separation and isolation is not a solution to anything", Cuaron added.

Director Alfonso Cuaron poses for photographers backstage with his Best Film and Best Director award for his film Roma at the BAFTA awards in London.

Despite failing to win Best Picture, "The Favorite" was honored as best British film and claimed several other top awards at the BAFTA ceremony.

It won out against "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson´s "They Shall Not Grow Old" in which silent black-and-white footage from World War I was transformed into a 3D colour movie.

"The thing I really want to do is Emma and Rachel-I must keep it together-not just for your performances but for what you did after the cameras stopped rolling", Colman said.

Colman, who portrays the monarch as frail and tempestuous, won the Leading Actress category, a victory that had been expected by many. Her co-star Rachel Weisz scooped the Supporting Actress prize, an award for which fellow "The Favourite" star Emma Stone was also nominated.

"We're having an fantastic night". We're going to get so pissed later.

"This isn't for the lead it's for 'a' lead and as far as I'm concerned all three of us are the same and should be the lead and it's weird that we can't do that". He paid tribute to his co-star, Lady Gaga, who was attending the Grammys in LA, which were taking place on the same night.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has outshone some of Hollywood's biggest stars as a special guest at the British Academy Film Awards.

The Absolutely Fabulous star began the British film awards ceremony on Sunday night with a series of gags about the nominated films and stars, but some viewers were shocked at her quip about the film BlacKkKlansman. Presenters also included Prince William, who has served as president of BAFTA since 2010.

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.

A Star Is Born won for its original music, with the film's writer, director, star and composer Bradley Cooper collecting the prize.
