Bafta removed "Bohemian Rhapsody" director Bryan Singer from the Queen biopic´s citation in the outstanding British film nomination "in light of recent very serious allegations". Malek, who called his win "truly extraordinary", did express his gratitude to Dexter Fletcher, who stepped in for Singer but is not a credited director on the film.

"Reverting back to a world of separation and isolation is not a solution to anything", Cuaron added, at a time when U.S. President Donald Trump is demanding a wall be built on the U.S. border with Mexico.

Olivia Colman triumphed at the Baftas on Sunday night, as she took home the award for leading actress at the British film ceremony.

"Roma" is also nominated for best picture at the Oscars later this month, which has propelled Netflix into the Hollywood club of elite filmmakers despite fears that its streaming business model could undermine the industry.

"If they do good movies, they should be recognized.I'm very happy that they're embracing diversity.in a time in which the theatrical experience had become so gentrified", Cuaron said on the red carpet about Netflix.

"I just hope that this opens up the game".

Colman, who portrays the monarch as frail and tempestuous, won the Leading Actress category, a victory that had been expected by many.

"We're having an unbelievable night aren't we". We are going to get so pissed later.

Rami Malek was named Best Actor for his performance in the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody and Mahershala Ali won the statuette for his work in the US civil rights-era road movie Green Book. He paid tribute to his co-star, Lady Gaga, who was attending the Grammys in LA, which were taking place on the same night. Singer did not attend the BAFTA Awards and was similarly absent from leading actor victor Rami Malek's speech.

However, unlike other award shows, viewers won't be able to watch Sunday's ceremony live when it starts at 7 p.m. GMT in London's Royal Albert Hall.

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

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.
