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. 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.

Turning to her co-stars Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone, she said: "As far as I'm concerned all three of us are the same and should be the leads and it's weird we can't do that".

The drama took the top prize of Best Film, as well as the honors for Best Director, Best Foreign Language Film and Best Cinematography.

Alfonso Cuaron's semi-autobiographical film, about a domestic worker in 1970s Mexico, has won a string of prizes this awards season, further cementing its path to potential Oscar success.

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.

The Favourite won best British film on the night, while Rachel Weisz was named best supporting actress for the movie.

Weisz and Stone are also in the running for Oscars in a proud year for the British film industry.

During an evening of typical showbiz glitz and glamour at London's Royal Albert Hall, The Favourite swept the board winning a staggering seven BAFTAs.

The 2019 edition has also been tinged by scandal.

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".

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.

Other winners included Rami Malek who took Best Actor for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in "Bohemian Rhapsody" and Mahershala Ali who was named Best Supporting Actor for his part in "Green Book".

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.
