Netflix film Roma scooped top prize at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) on Sunday.

The black-and-white movie about a domestic worker in 1970s Mexico won Best Film as well as Best Director for Alfonso Cuaron.

It won four gongs in total and is favourite to pick up the Best Picture award at the Oscars later this month.

Meanwhile The Favourite — which stars Olivia Colman as Britain’s 18th century Queen Anne — won seven BAFTAs.

Colman, who portrays the monarch as frail and tempestuous, won the Leading Actress category, a victory that had been expected by many. Her co-star Rachel Weisz scooped up the Supporting Actress prize, an award for which fellow The Favourite star Emma Stone was also nominated.

Meanwhile, Rami Malek won the Leading Actor prize for his role playing late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody.
