The Favourite was the big winner at the EE British Academy Film Awards.
The 18th-century drama - which stars Emma Stone, Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz - took home seven awards at the ceremony at London's Royal Albert Hall, including Outstanding British Film as well as awards for Olivia for Leading Actress and
Rachel for Supporting Actress.
The film also picked up wins in the Original Screenplay, Production Design, Costume Design and Make Up & Hair categories.
It was also a good night for Roma, which won a total of four awards in the coveted Best Film category as well as Cinematography and Film Not in the English Language. There was also a win for Alfonso Cuarón as Best Director.
Elsewhere, Rami Malek was named Best Leading Actor for his role as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, whilst the film also picked up Best Sound.
Mahershala Ali's performance in Green Book earned him the Best Supporting Actor gong whilst A Star is Born triumphed in
the Best Original Music category.
Accepting the award on the behalf of the cast and crew, director Bradley Cooper said: "I got to fulfil a dream I never thought would happen. I share this with Lady Gaga tonight, the music was the heartbeat of this film. I also need to thank Irina for putting up with me while I was trying to make music in our basement for a year."
