February 18, 2018 - “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” won five awards at the BAFTA Film Awards, held in London on Sunday, including best film, best actress for its lead performer Frances McDormand and a supporting actor award for Sam Rockwell.
Writer-director Martin McDonagh also won for the film’s original screenplay. The U.S.-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.
Mexican director Guillermo del Toro took the directing honours for his fantasy “The Shape of Water,” Gary Oldman took the top male acting prize for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour,” and Allison Janney was honoured for her supporting turn in “I, Tonya.”
