2018 was a monumental year in film and television, and the best and brightest of the year’s releases were celebrated in the latest edition of the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTA).
This year marked the 72nd event for the organisation, and some of Hollywood’s greatest stars gathered to be honoured in front of their fans and peers. With such an impressive list of nominees, this year was guaranteed to be utterly spectacular, and the results were not disappointing.
In terms of big winners, Roma received the award for Best Film, with writer and director Alfonso Cuarón taking home the title of Best Director. Roma beat out some big competition for the enduring award including A Star is Born, BlacKkKlansman and Green Book. The Favourite also walked away with an impressive array of prizes including Best Costume Design, Best Production Design and the elite Outstanding British Film Award. The Favourite received by far the most awards for the season.
Many of the night’s winners and nominees have been shortlisted for Oscars. So, with that event only weeks away, there are plenty more opportunities for creatives to win big.
