This year the British Academy of Film and Television 2018 or better known as the BAFTA Awards were reigned by the Frances McDormand starrer "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," as it bagged the biggest honor of the show. Director Ridley Scott took home the BAFTA fellowship award.

The Plot of 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri'

The movie "Three Billboards..." revolves around a small town of America and the story of a woman who shows her fury on the police for being incompetent in finding her daughters killer. Nevertheless, it took home the major awards at the 71st BAFTA awards as the celebrities gave a standing ovation on the Hollywood Times-Up move portrayed against sexual harassment.

The downfall was in for the movie "Victoria & Abdul" starring Judi Dench and Ali Fazal (Indian Actor) as the movie lost in the category Best Make-up and Hair against "Darkest Hour." Judi and Ali played the characters of Queen Victoria and Abdul respectively. The film puts light on their relationship and on how Abdul, a commoner became the most powerful figure on the court. Apart from the winner "Darkest Hour," the movie shared the nomination list with "Blade Runner 2049", "I," "Wonder" and "Tonya" as well.

Playing the character of Winston Churchill in "Darkest Hour" bagged Gary Oldman the Best Actor award.

"The Shape of Water" revolves around the love story of a woman and an Amazonian sea creature.

The movie directed by Guillermo Del Toro had high expectations as it was in 12 nomination categories, but bagged only three awards- Product design, music and del Toro for Best Director.

Sharing nominations with Florence Pugh, Josh O Connor, Tessa Thompson and Timothe Chelamet, British actor Daniel Kuluuya won the Rising Star award for his "Get Out" performance.

The Rising Star happens to be the only public decided award this time around.

Joanne Fry, who hosted the BAFTA for the first time was succeeding Stephen Fry. All the celebrities literally wore black in some way or another with exception to the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton who wore a dark green dress.
