'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017),' the bleak, bitter, blistering comedy about injustice in small-town America, took the major honours at the 2018 BAFTA film awards on Sunday night.
It was a starry, glamorous ceremony where the sexual harassment shame of the film industry and the the subsequent Time’s Up movement was ever present.
The drama won five trophies including best film, best British film and best actress for Frances McDormand.
Gary Oldman won best actor for playing Winston Churchill - one of two awards for World War Two epic Darkest Hour.
Fantasy romance The Shape of Water took three trophies, including best director for Guillermo Del Toro.
But there were few surprises among the main awards on a night when the main talking point came from the fact most guests wore black in support of the Time's Up and Me Too campaigns.
