The 60-year-old actor, who is a strong contender at the Oscars next month where she is vying for her second Best Actress trophy, has already won Golden Globe and SAG awards for her performance in the Martin McDonagh-directed movie about a disgruntled mother fighting for the justice for her raped and murdered teenage daughter.

The US-set film also won the best British film honours, qualifying on the basis of its creative team and the companies involved in producing it, many of whom are British.

However, the BAFTA Awards may not be the best barometer for success at the Oscars. It won in the categories Outstanding British Film, Best Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell), Best Original Screenplay, Best Actress (Frances McDormand), and the Best Film, at the award ceremony held at Royal Albert Hall, today.

This fight was more intense and more physical than when winning at 5-1 in the Canada against Switzerland, as the curtain rises. It was the second for the Czechs in just eight shots on Ben Scrivens, who got a second consecutive start in net for Canada.

The furor over sexual misconduct forms a somber backdrop to the awards, whose front-runners include monster fantasia The Shape of Water, tragicomedy Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and World War II flag-waver Darkest Hour.

The remaining winners were Allison Janney for "I, Tonya" (Best Supporting Actress), "Call Me By Your Name" (Adapted Screenplay), "Phantom Thread" (Best Costume Design), "Coco" (Best Animated Film), "Baby Driver" (Best Editing), "Dunkirk" (Best Sound), "I Am Not Your Negro" (Best Documentary), "Poles Apart" (Short Animation), "Cowboy Dave" (Best Short Film), "The Handmaiden" (Best Foreign Film) and "I Am Not A Witch" (Outstanding Debut).

Virtually all the stars at the London ceremony were in black and some were accompanied by rights campaigners.

Meanwhile, in an open letter published Sunday before the awards, nearly 200 British and Irish stars backed a new fund to help women facing sexual harassment and abuse at work.

He said: "I think it's important to represent this movement and try to listen if people are trying to be heard". With his film winning five awards in all at these precursor prizes, the actor was in a buoyant mood backstage for our interview. Kate acknowledged the evening's muted fashion by wearing a dark green Jenny Packham dress with black belt.

"I loved doing this insane part and finding her humanity, that's what I try and do in all roles", she said backstage.
