Rachel Weisz & Olivia Colman Glam Up for BAFTAs 2019!

Writer-director Alfonso Cuaron's black-and-white memoir Roma was the big victor at the BAFTA Awards ceremony at Royal Albert Hall in London on Sunday.

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

The ladies are both nominated for their work in the movie The Favourite, which has already won the award for Outstanding British Film.

The success of "Roma" dented expectations of a clean sweep by "The Favourite" - about a cantankerous 18th-century British queen and her scheming court.

Colman´s uproarious depiction of the largely forgotten monarch has proved popular with audiences.

Colman, 45, was up against Glenn Close ("The Wife") and Lady Gaga ("A Star is Born") - the same power duo she will face at the Oscars on February 24.

Colman - who rose to fame playing Sophie Chapman in Peep Show - paid tribute to her "classiest and coolest" fellow co-stars in the film, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone, and said in her eyes, the award was for all three of them as leads, and that she would "scratch in" their names on the Bafta statuette too.

Rami Malek won leading actor for "Bohemian Rhapsody", and Mahershala Ali won supporting actor for "Green Book".

Lumley, hosting for the second year running, poked fun at the A-list guests for "battling through the weather in a chauffeur-driven limousine" to reach the Royal Albert Hall. 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. Best British short film was "73 Cows", while Vice won the best editing.

A Star is Born won the prize for best original music, accepted by the film's writer, director and star, Bradley Cooper.

The 2019 edition has also been tinged by scandal.

Best documentary was awarded to the film, Free Solo, which featured the story of free-climber Alex Hannold, the first person to ever climb El Capitan in Yosemite National Park without ropes. Cooper also scored one of this year's best director nominations alongside Alfonso Cuaron for "Roma", Lanthimos for "The Favourite", Spike Lee for "BlacKkKlansman" and Paweł Pawlikowski for "Cold War".

Rami Malek took the Leading Actor prize for his portrayal of late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody", adding to his Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award wins for the role.
